Walking for Health


About this walk

Walking is great for your health and puts a spring in your step. With Walking for Health, you can join a free short walk nearby to help you get active and stay active at a pace that works for you. It’s a great way to stretch your legs, explore what’s on your doorstep, and make new friends.  The walks are led by friendly, knowledgeable volunteers, specially trained for the job. Along with fellow walkers, the walk leaders provide all the advice and encouragement a new walker needs to build fitness and confidence. 

Run by The Ramblers and Macmillan Cancer Support, Walking for Health is England’s largest network of health walk schemes with 600 groups and has helped thousands of people to lead a more active lifestyle over the past twelve years.  There are six active groups in and around Dartmoor.  Each group meets at least once weekly and offers a range walks to suit different fitness levels and abilities.
