The Ramblers helps everyone, everywhere go walking. That includes making it easier for everyone to find walks that suit them at every stage of their walking journey. That might be a short walk in the local park or a challenging hike to an isolated hilltop.
Some people who discover walking through short health walks or community walks will want to go on to something more challenging. People can also move the other way, with Ramblers members who were once very fit and active looking for less strenuous options due to age or illness.
Helping you make links between your health walks or community walks and Ramblers groups is part of this, making it easier for walkers to choose from a range of different walks.
How to find a walk that’s right for your walkers
“My friend was always trying to get me to go along to her walk and I thought ‘oh dear, not the Ramblers’, you know, needing boots and marching up mountains and things, but then I tried it and they are not like that at all, they are very friendly, and this walk is 4 miles, that’s right for me. I walk every week now.”
Sheila, Cardiff Central Strollers.
