Put simply, we are a friendly group of people who enjoy walking around the Peak District and Chesterfield area. We are a relaxed and informal group who want to combine walking with other activities including social events and weekends away. Our goal is to offer a wide range of walks and events that best suits all of our members. The term ‘young ramblers’ is used very generally. We provide walks at times that suit people of "working age" e.g. weekends, and summer evenings. Most of our group are in the age range 30 - 50 but all ages are more than welcome to join our walks.
Our walks are usually between 4 to 10 miles although we do occasionally do longer ones for the members that like to stretch their legs a bit more. Typically, our walks are in the Peak District but in winter, when the days are shorter and weather less reliable we include more walks in the Chesterfield area.
We walk at a moderate pace and build in time for taking photos, viewing interesting features and stopping for coffee breaks. if you are in any doubt about your fitness level we would advise that you choose a shorter, less strenuous walk in the first instance. Unless the walk is very short we have a lunch stop about half way round, so please bring sandwiches/snacks with you. We sometimes visit a tea room or pub after the walk but this will depend on the walk leader and any time constraints.
Always check the walk details on this website and contact the walk leader if you have any questions about the walk.
