Walking for Health Herefordshire

About Us

We offer a timetable of volunteer led walks throughout the county throughout the week. Walks vary in terrain and intensity.

All walks are free and most involve refreshments after the walk.

We also have a pack of self guided routes available from Tourist Information Centres.  The pack can also be downloaded from the Herefordshire Council Website.

If there are currently no walks in your area and you would like to see one started, please contact us on the details below.

Walk leader training is free and organised at regular intervals.
