The ranger walks are a ‘turn up and enjoy’ event, you do not need to book ahead.
Routes – The routes and themes are to be confirmed and intended to be fun and accessible for all the family. Remember it is all about enjoyment, fundraising and getting outside so please do not worry about pace or keeping up – it is not a race, it is about walking together, meeting some like minded people and having fun!
Walk leaders – All of the walk leaders are local National Trust rangers who have volunteered their time and expertise to lead these walks, support you all and give you a wealth of information on this stunning part of the world.
