Information for Newcomers.

If you are a newcomer to walking on the fells, then you are advised to choose a walk-level, which you know you

can cope with easily and move up to a higher level later, rather than take on a level of walk which

over-stretches you and you find you are holding up the progress of others in the party.

 

Dogs

Dogs are not allowed on coach walks but are allowed on some car walks, providing the owner uses their own car.

They must be kept under control and it is advisable to check with the walk leader if the walk is suitable for a dog.
