About Alex Foxfield

Hello! I’m Alex. I am an adventure writer and content creator based in Bristol currently working with komoot on their hiking Collections, region guides and highlights. I love sharing my favourite hiking haunts and inspiring others to get out amongst them. I am passionate about the great outdoors of the UK and can regularly be found somewhere on a mountain. When I’m not hiking, running or climbing mountains, I’m usually writing about them or putting together a film. If I can't get to the high places, I make do with running the roads, paths and trails around the city. For more information take a look at my website.

      Henbury Gorge and Hazel Brook continue to amaze. Today I sought out Goram's Chair, a glorious viewpoint on a jutting limestone crag above the gorge. Magic.

      My time is often spent exploring new places at my own pace. My time slows down on the tops to soak in the panoramas or it slows down in a pocket of woodland to take in the beauty of the surroundings. My time speeds up in the interim; I enjoy the sensation of moving fast and light through the landscape

      My Time is precious, particularly when the countdown to my first child being born is very much on. My Time is also best shared with my wife Louise, who loves a good coastal walk, even when 8 months pregnant.

      

      The rugged north Cornwall coast is full of wonderful sights and rural charm, while the town of

      I often think the best time to hike is at the bookends of the day, when the shadows are long and the light is at its best. This is My Time, when the trails are quiet and the world turns from day to night.

      

      My Dartmoor hike was a little evening adventure to two of the national park’s most iconic tors: Haytor

      Cleared our Eskdale basecamp, crossed the Esk, hid our backpacks and made for the summit of Slight Side. Great scrambley summit and super views. 👍🏻

      Glorious expedition into Upper Esdale. We bagged Hard Knott from the top of the pass, before heading to Great Moss and setting up basecamp. From there, we ascended to Scafell Pike via Little Narrowcove to find ourselves alone at the summit and greeted by awesome views. We descended to Mickledore, enjoying
