Welcome to walking in the Derbyshire Dales!
Walking is for everyone – free, accessible and good for our body and mind. Here in the Dales we have every type of walking on offer from fully accessible trails, beautiful parks, undulating footpaths in lovely countryside, right up to big hill walks.
At Derbyshire Dales Health Walks, we believe walking is inclusive. We train volunteers to become walk leaders with the goal of providing free, led walks, enabling everyone in our community to get out. These Health Walks are an integral part of the wider Walk Derbyshire model and if you think that becoming a walker or a walk leader sounds like it is for you then why not get in contact?
All Health Walks are detailed on the Derbyshire Dales District Council (DDDC) website. An up to date quarterly Guide is always available
and individual information for each walk is also available
‘Walks for All’ are a fully accessible, dementia friendly walk and talk which are very much designed with you in mind. The pace is set by you and you choose whether you walk a long way or just bench to bench along the even easy ground with the walk leaders. DDDC Health Walks run these in partnership with the Peak District National Park and more information is available
Walk Moor is a programme of short led walks run in Partnership with Eastern Moors Partnership and NE Derbyshire District Council. They are located on the gritstone Edges and the Moors surrounding the Burbage Valley and Longshaw Estate. The short walks are monthly between March and November with a few longer walks along the way.
