Hike On Lancashire (Formerly Lancashire Young Persons Walking Group) is relatively new to Meetup but we have actually been established for over fifteen years. We offer a variety of walks, social activities and weekends away for people in their 30’s and 40’s and 50's (although we don’t have a strict age limit). We go walking in the local area and beyond on Sundays throughout the year and also on weekday evenings in the summer. Our walks vary in length and difficulty from short evening walks to more challenging hill walking. We aim to offer walks to suit everyone whatever your fitness level. Come along and try it out... everyone is welcome. You might also like to visit our website at....... http://www.hikeonlancashire.org.uk

As we are a ramblers group (although younger than the norm!) and have a different membership policy to some other meet up groups. Come along and join us on a few walks (each walk is £1). If you like it then it is often cheaper to join the Ramblers. This allows you to walk with any ramblers group in the country plus gives you access to a host of other benefits. If you decide you would like to join us just click on the following link which takes you to the ramblers membership page: https://www.ramblers.org.uk/get-involved/become-a-member/join-us.aspx . Please make sure you affiliate yourselves to our group which is ML50.

If you do decide to join us please remember to select 'Hike on Lancashire' as your preferred group (we are part of the Mid Lancashire Area) otherwise you will be assigned to another group based on your postcode. It is important that you select Hike on Lancashire as your preferred group as we do run a number of events such as weekends away and some socials which are exclusive to Hike on Lancashire members.

Ramblers members are not required to pay the £1 fee we charge per walk. There are also a host of other benefits to being a ramblers member including a monthly 'Walk' magazine sent to your home address and a membership card offering up to 15-20% discount at a number of leading outdoor stores including Cotswold Outdoors.

Other information: Are dogs allowed on walks? Normally, yes - but they need to be kept under control. A lot of walks involve walking through fields with either cattle or sheep, and you need to remember the countryside code and that paramount are farmers' rights. Also, other people walking on the fells. If dogs are definitely not permitted (such as on a number of routes in the Trough of Bowland) this will be indicated. We cannot advertise for every walk if it suitable for dogs (as each dog differs). That depends on you knowing your four legged friend, the terrain, and being confident they can manage.

We look forward to meeting you soon!
