Jan and I have lived in Parcent since 2006. We formed this group to meet and make friends with others who enjoy exploring the excellent hill, valley and coastal walks.
This group is aimed at both new and experienced walkers, and will offer both easy and moderate walks. We will walk each Monday and will offer a different walk each week.
It is difficult to explain to anyone who has not walked locally what we mean by easy and moderate. So we grade our walks by the length of time it take to complete them
A short walk will be 4 to 4.5 hours
A Medium walk will be 4.5 to 5 hours
All of our walks are done at a moderate pace, and should be suitable for anyone who is moderately fit.
We include coastal, valley and hill walks. Most tracks are rough, so walking boots are essential. Some walks will include a little ascent, but we will avoid the more difficult climbs.
Each walk is restricted to 16 members, and priority given to regular walkers
The pace is moderate and anyone who is reasonably fit should be able to manage them with ease. We have a half hour picnic stop, plus two or three water stops. We always allow plenty of time to enjoy the scenery and take photographs.
We publish a blog of each walk with a written description and photographs. This will give you a very good idea of what the walks are like. You can find it here
This is a lovely walking area, and those of you who have not tried it really should do so. New members are always welcome. So if you would like to explore the area in the company of a friendly group just complete the contact form below
