Walk Ratings

Here's an explanation of our walk ratings, so you have an idea of how hard the walks will be:

Easy: Beginner level countryside walk. Usually around 5 miles with some undulation. Pace taken easy to accommodate all abilities. Great for getting started or building confidence.

Moderate: A step up to countryside walks of around 10 miles or so, with the possibility of more hills and undulation. Still always walked at a pace everyone in the groups can manage and certainly not a race.

Strenuous: Involves moderate to strenuous mountain/big hill climbs and ascents, with uneven and rocky conditions underfoot. Sometimes remote or high level paths and tracks. Walks such as 

Extreme: These are long distances, often over multiple mountains in a day or over several days at a time with significant gradient. Strenuous ascents, hill climbs and scrambling may be required across rocky and mountainous terrain. Good hillwalking and hiking experience required. These walks take a higher level of fitness, but are still approached at a pace all participants are happy with.
