Summer Walks




The sun’s shining and it is a perfect morning for a walk, so why not come join us, for a local 2 hour walk in Ravensdale! This is the first of our Summer walks open to members and non-members, these walks will be shorter, slower and will involve less climbing than our usual hikes, so ideal for anyone wanting to see if Hill Walking is for them, or wanting to check out their fitness levels before joining one of our regular walks. Members go free, there is a charge of £5/ walk for non-members, attend all 4 and you will have paid your membership and will be fully fledged “Gappy”!!!

You will need walking boots and waterproof jacket, (hopefully you won’t need it but it’s always better to be prepared!). Bring a packed lunch and a drink. Sun cream would be wise today, (we don’t often get to say that). Children are welcome and go free but remain the responsibility of their accompanying adult. Please consider their age and stamina before dragging them out, these walks are definitely not suitable for very young kids or push chairs.

Walks are graded according to difficulty so this morning we will be gentle on you and start you off with an easier walk, but over the Summer they will become increasingly difficult and we will be walking at times on open hillside on rough terrain, more in keeping with our usual walks. So if you are interested in seeing the locality from a different perspective meet us this morning at 12 noon in the Gap car park for registration.
