Simply Walk

We offer over 60 walks across Buckinghamshire.

Our trained volunteer walk leaders and backmarkers are there to help you walk at your own pace, with no need to worry about being left behind. However, please try and attend the level of walk you feel you can do.

All new walkers are welcome whether you are fit and active, haven't exercised in a long time, or have been advised to join by a doctor.

Taking part

You need to register for Simply Walk online before attending your first walk.

If you are not able to register online, paper copies of the registration form will be available from your walk leader on-site.

Please note:

  • in the event of poor weather please check for cancellations on the calendar before setting out

Levels of walking

  • Level 1: Get started with walks over flat ground and no stiles (up to 45 minutes)
  • Level 2: Occasional stile and gradient (up to 60 minutes)
  • Level 3: Occasional stile and gradient (between 60 to 90 minutes)
  • Level 4: Occasional stile and gradient (90 minutes plus)

Level 4 walks are the most advanced walks. They are more than 1.5 hours and possibly over more demanding terrain. Although they are not officially a “health walk”, they are still part of the Simply Walk scheme.

Dogs

Registered assistance dogs are allowed on all walks.

Well behaved dogs on non-extendable leads are also permitted at the discretion of the walk leader.

It is the owner's responsibility to ensure their pet is covered by liability insurance.

Volunteering

Simply Walk is seeking more Volunteer Walk Leaders.

All training is free. No previous skills or qualification required - just enthusiasm and willingness to help. There is also an option to complete a first aid training course.
