Walking in Huddersfield - your friendly local rambling community
Welcome to walking with Huddersfield Group! Our packed programme includes:
An A grade walk every Sunday, usually 10-13 miles
On many Sundays, a B grade walk, usually 6-9 miles
Monthly A+ grade walks on Saturdays for those who enjoy something more energetic!
Summer evening walks of up to 5 miles on Tuesdays
Our See walks (C-grade walks), offering an easy monthly Saturday walk of 4 to 5 miles, especially aimed at families, those looking to become more active or to return to fitness, and people new to walking with us.
You can see our upcoming walks below. All are circular unless otherwise stated.
Huddersfield Group's walks offer an opportunity to get to know our wonderful walking area guided by our experienced and knowledgeable leaders. Our walks are often in the beautiful countryside around Huddersfield, sometimes further afield. They offer a mixture of the hills and moors of the South Pennines, Peak District or Yorkshire Dales, and lower level pastureland and valleys, often taking in the rivers, canals and historic architecture that defines the district.
In general, our walks are on rural footpaths and bridleways, with road walking kept to a minimum. Our more strenuous walks sometimes cross more difficult terrain such as rough moorland away from defined paths. We also occasionally do more urban walks, taking advantage of the green spaces and ginnels in our local towns.
We are a friendly group, and like to finish our walks with a sociable drink together. Our lively social scene includes meals out, events and holidays.
We care about our footpath network, and work with Kirklees Council, our local authority, and other volunteer groups to protect these.
Come and join us - you'll find a walk just to suit what you're looking for!
