Ashbourne walks


Wednesday Long morning walks (weekly)

Walk leaders: Jill, Alison, Judy and Paul  
Walk level: Long
Time: 10:30am

Meeting point: Ashbourne Leisure Centre

New walkers always welcome throughout the year. We meet at the Leisure Centre and then share cars to travel to different locations around the Dales to enjoy longer walks of up to 3 hours. Routes are chosen on the day or the week before. The long walks are more challenging and often include open rough country, stiles, longer inclines and steeper hills. You will need to be reasonably fit - please check with the walk leaders at the Leisure Centre on the day about the particular route to be undertaken.

Friday Moderate morning walks (weekly)

Walk leaders: Steve, and Penny
Walk level: Moderate

Meeting pointAshbourne Leisure Centre

New walkers always welcome. Our walking group is now going that bit further and enjoying walks from an hour and a half to two hours. The walks are likely to include stiles, up-hill and downhill walking on rougher terrain. We sometimes walk from the Leisure Centre and sometimes car share  to a starting point within 10 or 15 minutes drive from the Leisure Centre. Each route is planned by the walk leader before the day, taking into account the weather forecast and conditions underfoot.
