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.

If you're interested in joining the group, please 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.

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. 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.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
