Walking in Trafford and beyond
We are a small friendly group, based in Trafford in Greater Manchester and with members from the surrounding area as well. Our enthusiastic walk leaders take us on a wide variety of walks suitable for all standards.
Whatever your interest in walking we will have walks that will interest you. Shorter easier walks, many moderate walks and some more strenuous. Walks may be near but generally within an hour’s drive. Fortunately this includes many interesting areas in Lancashire, Cheshire, North Wales and the Peak District and occasionally further afield.
Within Trafford we also have volunteers who help monitor local footpaths and support our award-winning path maintenance team. There is more information on our What we do page.
Our walking community
Our Thursday walks are often moderate of 7 to 10 miles with some more challenging and others more leisurely. We also have occasional Monday and alternative Thursday walks which we call Pop up walks to add variety. We walk in all areas from Pennine hills and open moorland, to Cheshire farm land or Lancashire Fylde, not forgetting more local walks in and around Greater Manchester.
Our Saturday Strollers programme on alternate weeks is shorter and easier, lasting approximately two hours. They are in Trafford or close by, and are deservedly popular. More recently a few longer walks have been added to our Saturday programme.
