Important additional advice

Walk gradings are provided as a general guide only. The pace of the walk is appropirate to the distance and the available time, regional difference in terrain and the weather conditions on the day, all of which can make a walk more difficult than planned.

If you have any doubt about your fitness for a particular walk please contact the organiser or leader in advance.

If you’re unsure of your fitness level, try a short and easy walk first, it’s much better to find a walk a little slow and easy than to make yourself miserable and exhausted and put you off your next walk.

The leader may decline to take anyone on the walk who is though by the leader unlikely to be able to cope with the pace or lengh of the walk.

Walking boots and warm, waterproof clothing are essential.

Sorry no Dog are allowed on club walks
