The Walking group covers various locations in the area, usually walking about 6-8 miles.

Now that Covid restrictions have been eased, there is no longer a requirement to sign on to each walk through Doodle.


General comments

This document describes the basic risks for walk run by the U3A Dacorum Walking group.

It is meant to be used in association with extra analysis provided with the detail for each walk. This detail will include the start location, walk length and severity. It will also note any extra risks such as narrow paths.
Once you are on my list, I will send out the details of the month’s walk approximately a week before the walk.
The email I send will come from my own email address so it may go to ‘Spam’.

Walk conditions

  • The walks will mainly use footpaths and will be 6-8 miles in length. It will normally start at 9:30 on the 4th Tuesday of the month.
  • To avoid Xmas, the December walk is normally a week earlier.
  • There will not normally be any thick vegetation to traverse.
  • However, there are often muddy parts so that walking boots are recommended.
  • There is usually a stop made in the middle of the walk. Members are recommended to bring a drink and possibly a small snack. (Many members bring a banana as the snack.)
