Plymouth - Step into Nature

About Us

The Step into Nature scheme is organised by Livewell Southwests Wellbeing Team, Plymouth City Council, Timbank and Volunteers, to provide free short health walks in and around Plymouth.

Our Scheme has regular walks in and around the parks, woodlands and nature reserves of the city.  Currently we have at least one short easier walk of up to 30 minutes per month, with some longer 30-60 or up to 90 minute walks to build your activity levels further.  Walks in the nature reserves and woodland can be muddy during the wetter months, so sturdy footwear is recommended.

Short easier walks are suitable for all ablilties and are on good paths with only some small hills.

Our other walks can be a little more challenging, with some uneven terrain and longer inclines.

The walks generally take place at 10:30am on week day morning, but we do have some walks on a saturday.

Please see the current programme for more details of when and where the walks take place.
