Group name: Totnes
This group is a part of Devon Area.
Our activities include:
Short and easy walks
Group walks have re-commenced, but with some changes in the way they are organised and some new steps that both those leading and everyone participating in a walk must take. If you would like to join one of our led walks then please read and ensure you comply with these new steps, which are described on our New Walking guidelines tab.
We aim to review feedback and experience from our new led walks programme in order to adjust the rules and plans going forward. So please check this website for future updates.
We continue to encourage members to arrange ad-hoc walks in small groups. If you are looking for a new walking route, there are over 3000 independent routes on the Ramblers website or app. Anyone who is walking in more remote areas that are local to them, is asked to stay well within their limits, to avoid any need to call on mountain rescue or other emergency services.
Our walks cover a wide range of the beautiful countryside of South Devon, including Dartmoor, the South Devon coastline and all the rolling hills and dales in between. We lead walks on Sundays and Wednesdays. The Sunday walk is generally of intermediate length, about 6 to 7 miles at an easy pace. For the Wednesday walks, there are some short walk of about 4 to 6 miles at a leisurely pace and some longer walk of about 8 or more miles at a moderate pace.
Please note that unless stated otherwise in our programme, only Registered Assistance Dogs are permitted on our walks. If permitted all dog owners must follow the walking etiquette.
Totnes Walk & Talk offer shorter walks and are hoping to re-start walking in September. For further details see their website www.walkingforhealth.org.uk/walkfinder/walk-talk-totnes
