2017 Guided Walks Programme

Alston Moor Walkers are Welcome aims to organize a minimum of one Guided Walk per month.  Over the year we aim to provide a variety of walks ranging from short easy walks of around 4 miles to very strenuous walks of up to 20 miles.  Pre-walk information will be posted on the website giving details about the terrain and the length and difficulty of the walk and of any restrictions eg dogs on open access land.  There is no charge for the walks and anyone is welcome to join us however a voluntary donation of £1.50 to help cover our insurance costs is appreciated.
