Our Walks

Doorstep Walks in and around Carlisle.

The programme of walks are short, graded, easy walks within the Carlisle area. The walks are great for your health, easily accessible and follow good footpaths. Most walks are an hour in length but some provide a shorter 30 minute option (please see the attached programme for details). Each walk will take place on a Wednesday at 10.30am & 1pm. 

Tuesday Trundles take place every other Tuesday at 10am - 12 noon.  These are longer walks averaging 4 - 5 miles with different grades of difficulty.  They require stout footwear and some good waterproofs and explore the fells, rivers and marshes in the Carlisle area.
