We are a group dedicated to ascending peaks and enjoying panoramic views. We organise hikes in the hills around the country and abroad - occasionally going away on several days hiking trips. For each day's hike we generally aim to achieve at least 1000ft in total accent and at least 12 miles distance. In the modest peaks in the south east this will mean linking several hills together which will sometimes lead to lengthier walks. On trips to the national parks we will endeavour to choose challenging walks taking in the major peaks (therefore bagging that magical 1000ft easily). A pub visit at the end of the walk is of course obligatotory! If you are interested in some serious, decent paced hill and fell walking, sign up to our group.
How we run our meetups: We provide information about an activity, meetup point, how to get there and where necessary where to stay overnight. We request attendees of our meetups to donate towards our charity WaterAid £3 for day hikes, £5 for weekend hikes and £10 for hikes abroad - either paid to the organiser or to our fund raising account here http://my.wateraidfundraising.org.uk/London....
London 1000ft Hiking Club Terms and Conditions
We do not have leaders, tour guides, instructors, or experts. To describe and post a hike does not constitute nor should it convey any guarantee of safety nor the assumption of liability. To organise is to assemble details, disseminate information, and provide a little cohesion to an event by being the single point of contact for the participants. We do not provide any service nor do we tell you what to do. If you choose to ignore suggestions and recommendations you are well within your rights to do so. Our suggestions and recommendations within trip descriptions are based upon the greater fund of knowledge presented by hiking literature and search and rescue teams in general. You are strongly encouraged to do your own research, take hiking and navigation advice, and make your own plans to ensure your own safety, wherever and whatever you are doing.
We value cooperativeness and getting along.
We reserve the right to exclude people who show uncooperative, ill mannered and welfare (to others) threatening behaviours. We are NOT a travel agent and at no time are we liable for any costs that you might encur or would have encurred before being excluded from our group.
If something goes wrong you cannot reasonably expect the rest of the group to provide professional medical attention or professional rescue – hiking often entails being many miles from prompt help. YOU must take this into consideration and YOU must take steps to reduce YOUR risk of injury or illness. This is true no matter who you hike with - your best friend, or an organised trip with the The London 1000ft Hiking Club. Wherever you go or whoever you go with, it is in your best interest to know the risks you are taking and how to minimise risk whilst hiking.
By signing up for one of our walks you have agreed that you have understood and will adhere to these terms and conditions.
