About Dorset Young Walkers

Dorset Young walkers on Dartmoor

We are a thriving walking group aimed at people in their 20’s to 30'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 and East Dorset areas, West Dorset (e.g. Abbotsbury, Lyme Regis) and in the north of our county. We organise social events and weekends away such as camping trips.

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.

If you are interested in joining us please browse our programme of events.  It is ok to just turn up to one of the walks (usually without booking) and our website has all the information you need to make your day out with us a pleasure. If you need any extra advise, you can email us, send us a message on Twitter or join our Facebook page.

If you walk with us on a regular basis and to be eligible to attend weekends away you will need to be a member of The Ramblers.  For more details on joining our group and becoming a regular member of the DYW please read the information pages.
