The main focus of the group is to meet up and walk in rural Dorset, sometimes further afield. We also have other types of event, such as cycling, social events, festivals and so on. Whether you would like to suggest and lead events, or simply join in with other like minded spirits, you're most welcome to join us.

The group is open to everyone over the age of 17, singles and couples. We're sure you'll find that members are friendly and will make you feel most welcome. Our walks are usually between 8 and 12 miles, sometimes more. They are often over steep terrain or rough ground, so you need to be reasonably fit.

The Meetup app only gives a brief summary of what we're about. To get more details and a bigger picture, using a PC or Mac to access the website is a better option.

If you're interested in joining the group, please access us via the website and take time to read “Guidance for non members” which can be found on the More/files menu or on this link. It will guide you through the joining process and provide further background information. You can read what members are saying about the group on the "group reviews" link.

The vision is to have a group of an open nature, run for and by the members. We are a not for profit group, though there are some costs involved in running the group and website. Everyone attending a walk (leader excluded) is asked to contribute £1 to the walk leader. Members taking part in events do so at their own risk and everyone is responsible for their own safety.
