Walk grading guide

We grade all of our walks easy, moderate or challenging according to the level of difficulty, terrain and pace. New members can attend any walk.

Easy walks: gentle pace on fairly level terrain. Anyone can enjoy these walks (ideal for newcomers).

Moderate walks: more variable terrain that may involve gentle hills or a few steep slopes.

Challenging walks: long distances at a good pace, often involving hills and rough ground. A reasonable level of fitness and stamina is required. These tend to be for more fitter walkers – they tend to be a good day’s walk.
