Amber Valley: Local Health Walks

About Us

Amber Valley walks take place across the borough, our local health walks provide a variety of walks of differing intensity providing a range of opportunities suitable for people of all abilities.

The walks are predominantly on flat ground with no styles to climb; the walks last for approximatley 1-1.5hrs and some are varied week by week. All our walks are weekly run by dedicated volunteers. The walks each have a footprint to show the levels of each walk.

The walks are also suitable for people with a range of medical conditions which would benefit from increased physical activity levels, some are run from our Leisure Centres linking in with the health referral programme, those walks are 30 minutes. Your walk leader will ensure you walk at a pace that suits you.

The walking groups are a great way to meet new friends and to discover the natural beauty of the areas we live in.
