What is Take A Hike and why is there no charge for this walk?
We are a friendly walking group for younger ramblers (roughly aged 20’s to 40’s). New members are always welcome! Our group was founded in 2002 and is run entirely by volunteers. We are one of around 500 Ramblers groups across Britain.
We are a website (http://www.takeahike.org.uk) -based group, rather than a Meetup group. We use Meetup to publicise a selection of our walks to help people find out about us. If you’re not already a member of the Ramblers, we invite you to try two or three of our walks for free before deciding whether to join*. We encourage you to visit our website (http://www.takeahike.org.uk) to see the complete walks diary and come along to any of the walks that appeal to you. Sometimes walks are added at short notice, so it’s a good idea to check the website regularly.
An important thing to know is that our members don't generally use Meetup to book a place on our walks, because there is no need for them to sign up in advance, so don't be concerned if attendance looks low. There will always be more people attending than it shows on here.
Our FAQs (https://www.meetup.com/Take-A-Hike-Ramblers-West-Yorkshire/pages/19662752/Frequently_asked_questions_about_the_group/) include guidance about what to wear for walking, what to bring with you on a walk, how fit you need to be etc. There's also advice if you’re thinking about bringing a dog. If you want to know anything else just post/send us a message.
We’re on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/takeahikegroup) too - please give us a 'like' if you enjoyed walking with us!
See you soon!
