Getting to walks

Most of our walks start from a rural car park, which may not be accessible by public transport. For long walks you can join us in a car park in High Barnet to car share – our custom is to give the driver a contribution towards petrol of 5p per mile each way. Click on the walk title in the Our Group Walks menu on the right of this page or see our Walks Programme for full details of the meeting time and place and whether car sharing is available. For other walks you could try phoning the leader for help.

What to bring

Walking boots, waterproofs, drink (for mid-morning break), packed lunch (on full day walks) and a backpack to carry them in.

Coming on a walk for the first time

It isn’t necessary to let anyone know you’re coming along, simply turn up about 10 minutes before the walk is due to begin and introduce yourself to the leader.

Dogs on walks

Most of our leaders are happy to have one or two dogs on a walk, but it is up to the individual leader – please phone the leader to check before you come. Please keep your dog on a fixed lead whenever appropriate, to make sure they don't cause problems to other walkers or livestock. Assistance dogs are always welcome.
