The Dorset Young Walkers are a group of walkers, in our 20's to 40's, who enjoy exploring the wealth of walks available on our doorstep.
If you're interested in joining us, we'd love to hear from you, you can get in touch with us via our contact us page, our email, group mobile phone, Facebook, via Twitter or just turn up to one of the listed walks. We also do social events and other outdoor activities, but it's best to meet up with us on a walk first. We are a group of the Ramblers Association (RA).
You don't have to be a member of the Ramblers Association to come along on a few of our walks, but you will be expected to join if you walk with us frequently or if you wish to take part in other activities such as weekends away. The group was formed in March 2003 and currently has about 75 members.
Dorset Young Walkers - 10 Years On!
Dorset Young Walkers is a thriving walking group aimed at people in their 20’s, 30’s and 40’s and affiliated to ‘The Ramblers’. We are a friendly welcoming group that organises a wide variety of interesting
walks across the beautiful and varied landscapes of Dorset, from the Purbecks, to Poole/Bournemouth & East Dorset areas, West Dorset (e.g. Abbotsbury, Lyme Regis) and in the north of our county.
We offer both short walks of up to 5 miles as well longer walks of up to 10 to 12 miles. Most of our walks provide the opportunity to visit local tearooms or a pub along the way or at the end of each walk. All of our walks and social events are listed on our group website: www.dorsetyoungwalkers.org.uk
Spring finally seems to be here so now is the time to get out there and get walking - we hope to see you soon!
To celebrate the group being formed 10 years ago, there will be a ‘10th Anniversary Party’ (with live music) on Saturday 27 April at the Colliton Club in Dorchester (for full details see the group website). Current, prospective and past members are all welcome to apply for tickets.
