Roz Purcell is the founder of The Hike Life community and one of Ireland's leading voices on the value of getting outdoors, and the mental and physical benefits of a life lived in harmony with the natural world. Starting as a community of hikers who met across Ireland, The Hike Life has grown into a real force to be reckoned with, encouraging more people to get out and about and into the hills and mountains to experience life on a new level. For Roz herself, hiking is an escape, a getaway from the hectic world of phones and email, business and the pressures of the modern world.
It's a chance to be out in the open and a way to remember that we're all part of something much bigger, as well as a way to make sure the feet are kept firmly on the ground! Most of all, hiking is Roz's favourite way to recharge both mentally and physically. Now THE HIKE LIFE book brings us 50 of Roz's favourite hikes from all round Ireland. As well as a step-by-step route for each hike, difficulty levels and useful information along the way, The Hike Life is Roz's very personal guide to these brilliant hikes, telling us what she loves about each one and what they mean to her, taking us from the Coumshigaun Horseshoe Loop in Co.
Waterford to Knocknarea in Co. Sligo and to all her favourite hikes in Ireland. With beautiful photography and a wealth of detail, THE HIKE LIFE is the perfect getaway.
