Leeds - Otley Short Walks

About Us

Otley Short Walks are led by volunteers and are part of the Walking for Health programme.

Click here to view our latest walk programme. 

We have a varied programme of walks in Otley itself; also in the near locality using local buses to Weston, Menston, Burley-in-Wharfedale, Guiseley, Meanwood and Golden Acre Park. Occasionally we travel further afield, again using public transport.

Walk regularly. Feel the difference.
