East Devon Walk This Way
East Devon Walk This Way aims to develop Walking For Health, so that more people in Devon can enjoy being part of a local health walk group.
There are 5 Walk This Way groups within East Devon; Exmouth, Sid Valley, Axe Valley, Seaton\Colyton & Summer Progression
All walks are led by trained, friendly, volunteer walk leaders who will be sure to give you a warm welcome. If you are a new walker, please arrive 15 minutes before the start time to complete a simple registration form.
All walks are free, all you need are comfortable shoes, loose fitting clothing and waterproofs if wet.
Walking is the lowest risk of all physical activities, yet produces massive benefits to physical fitness and mental wellbeing. It is a great way to explore your local area, make new friends and learn more about your immediate community.
All walks start at 10.30am prompt, please arrive at 10.15am to allow time for registration.
Some walks are Countryside walks.
