West Somerset Health Walks

About Us

We run a range of Health Walks in Somerset on a regular basis.  We have a number of starting points around the area and all our walks are rated.
 
Our walking programme is aimed at all levels of fitness and ability from beginners to advanced. The walks vary in distance and are rated by level in our walking leaflet schedule. This is obtainable by contacting Zing Somerset on 08004125502 or downloading the walk leaflet from www.zingsomerset.co.uk

The aims of our walks are to provide people with a chance to meet new people and to socialise, build their self-confidence, and to start improving their fitness. Everyone is welcome.
