Our regular community walks are based all around the Forest of Dean taking in its natural beauty and stunning views. There is generally a choice of walks of between 10 – 60 minutes duration. Most of our walks finish at a café where we can get refreshments and have a chat.
Our walks are graded from level 1 to level 3:
Level 1 - easy walking on mainly flat surfaces.
Level 2 - walks may have some rough surfaces and gentle slopes.
Level 3 - longer walks with some uneven, sloping or rough pathways.
An asterisk * indicates where short walks are available.
We welcome all. Please note that a carer will need to accompany any walker who normally needs such support. With the exception of the Bailey Lane End walk, the only dogs permitted on walks are assistance dogs.
Please be aware that all walkers take part at their own risk.
If you would like more information on a particular walk please phone the Walk Leader.
