Once you realise the pleasure to be had from walking you may want to do more than our group has to offer. Walk NI is a great site to visit but there are also some others here that may prove useful. Let me know of any that I have missed.
This website is your definitive guide to walking in Northern Ireland giving excellent information on walks for both the serious rambler and for those who want to take a short stroll. Walks are sorted by County and then by their length - short, medium or long. Definitely worth a visit.
Similar content to the site above but with more general information as well, so that you can play a good day out.
We are fortunate to have so many forest parks in which to walk. You may find some new ones here to visit over the summer.
If you want to investigate more of Ireland and let someone else work out routes, move your bags and supply accommodation, have a look at this site.
On our doorstep and seen every day are the Belfast Hills. This website is run by The Belfast Hills Partnership (BHP),an independent charity which seeks to improve how the hills are managed. There are six main sites with walks open to the public.
If you would rather belong to a club than just doing you own thing then this is the site for you. Contact details of over 30 Rambling Clubs are given and even more useful are profiles of the club so that you can match your requirements and abilities with a suitable club.
There are enough possibilities in Northern Ireland to satisfy most of us, but if you venture to the sourh of Dublin there are many kilometres of wonderfully unspoilt mountain trails.
The Winter programme of walks for Tuesday mornings has now been finalised.
