Walks gradings are a guide to difficulty

 

Easy   -    For reasonably fit people with at least a little country  walking experience

Moderate -  Walks for people with country walking experience and a good level of fitness.May include some steep paths, open country and be at a good pace.

Moderately Hard/Strenuous    –    Harder walk for experience walkers, with hill climbs and could have time constraints.

Strenuous/Hard  -  For experienced country walkers with an above average fitness level.May include steep hills and rough country and walked at a brisk pace, could have time constraints.


Important additional advice

Walk gradings are provided as a general guide only. The pace of the walk is appropirate to the distance and the available time, regional difference in terrain and the weather conditions on the day, all of which can make a walk more difficult than planned.

If you have any doubt about your fitness for a particular walk please contact the organiser or leader in advance.

If you’re unsure of your fitness level, try a short and easy walk first, it’s much better to find a walk a little slow and easy than to make yourself miserable and exhausted and put you off your next walk.

The leader may decline to take anyone on the walk who is though by the leader unlikely to be able to cope with the pace or lengh of the walk.


Walking boots and warm, waterproof clothing are essential.

Sorry no Dog are allowed on club walks
