Sunday walks are always the third Sunday of the month, in the summer we have mid-week evening strolls and HD XTRA walks. All Sunday walks start at 10.30. Please be prompt, and allow time for putting boots on, last minute trip to the loo etc!
Please note that if it is very snowy, we may cancel the walk so please check back here if the weather looks bad. Other walks in the Peak District with local women's groups can be found at Peak HD.
Details of our most recent past walks are here on our Old Walks page. 2017
19th November, Crich Meet in the Market square in Crich for a 13km (8 mile) hike. We will walk up to Crich monument then explore further north and west, up to Wheatcroft then south-east to Park Head and Mill Green. Footpaths cross mainly farmland with some livestock and occasional muddy patches, dogs will need to be on leads some of the time. Some rather narrow squeeze stiles. It is an undulating walk with ups and downs, only one short, really steep section. Beautiful views and a lovely cafe at the end. Opportunity to cut the walk short and save about 1 mile.
