Walk Schedule Details

The Walks Schedule below gives details of organized walks.
On Sundays some Walk Leaders may make arrangements to meet at Hazel Grove Park & Ride where walkers can share lifts to the start of the walk. These arrangements are particularly advantageous for new members, as the location of the Park & Ride is not far away, is easy to navigate to and you will be with more experienced members travelling to the start of the walk. However, please ensure that you contact the Walk Leader to make a prior arrangement to meet at Hazel Grove P&R; otherwise the Leader may drive direct to the start of the walk.

If there is no arrangement to meet at Hazel Grove or you would prefer to meet at the start of the walk, there is a map link on each walk, which will bring up a Google map of the walk start. In the walk details, each walk start is described with a Post Code(PC),an OS map reference (eg SK1234 4321) or What 3 Words (W3W or ///).
Google Maps or Apple Maps on a smart phone, tablet, computer, or suitable vehicle system can be used with the post code or What3words to give directions and estimated travelling time from your present location to the walk start point. It should be noted that post codes, especially in country areas can be misleading.

Walk leaders will start the walk at the time indicated, i.e. 10.00am, so please be there at least 15 mins beforehand.

Members: Please make sure to contact the Walk Leader before 6pm on the day before the walk, to let them know that you will be joining their walk. Leaders' contact details are available in the current walk schedules circulated bi-monthly to members.

Non-Members: Please use the ‘Contact Us’ to make contact with the Walk Leader for any walk that you wish to take part.

Guidance on assessing degree of difficulty (for leaders and walkers)

The Club publishes fuller walks' details than most walking clubs and where possible an itinerary is given, which gives members an idea of the area and terrain of each walk. For a given walk there are two aspects of difficulty to consider, the strenuosity (grade) of the walk, and its distance. It is important to note that these are quoted separately in our schedule of walks. We use the abbreviated grade descriptions given below to denote

Walk Grades:

The grade of the walk and its distance are quoted separately in the schedule of walks.

Easy: Up to 7 miles, mainly level paths or tracks, minimal uphill sections. Gentle pace, frequent stops possible.

Moderate: 5-10 miles, Good paths or tracks possibly with rough terrain in places but no narrow sections, some hills but not steep or sustained. Faster pace with regular rests.

Harder: 7-12 miles, Established paths but often including rough terrain with steep and/or sustained uphill & downhill sections requiring effort & fitness. Brisk pace required, less frequent rests.

Demanding: 7+ miles, Walks with significant ascent & descent, often steep sections and possibly over rough & rocky terrain with narrow sections and significant exposure. Potential for difficult & changeable weather conditions. Brisk steady pace essential, only suitable for experienced and fit walkers. Maximum group size of 6 suggested to ensure safety.

Walks of any grade are likely to include stiles but the club does not include a stile count in walk details. If you have any queries about the route or doubts about joining a walk, please discuss with the Walk Leader.
