Following relaxation of restrictions Hike on Lancashire is recommencing Group Walks from 6 September for Hike on Lancashire Ramblers Association Members only.
As we have been operating with Covid precautions for a month now and during that time there has been further policy change we have reviewed our current protocols. Due to a combination of logistical pressures on our volunteers leading walks and rising Covid rates we have decided to make the following changes to how the group operates.
Walks will be advertised on this website by locality, length and grade. The walk start time, location and booking tool is only available in the following way:
Walk booking and meet point information is via a new Meet Up site that is called Hike on Lancashire Members only . You can only find this site by using the link here: http://meetu.ps/c/4HvZX/hjQz2/a
You will need to request to join the site before being able to access the walk details and booking. This is a one time requirement. This is a different site to the current one in use so you will need to register the first time you use it.
Once your membership of HOL has been confirmed you will be able to book on walks through the RSVP function and see all details needed. New walks will be added each week.
You do not need to text the walk leader.
Please email email@example.com between 7pm Friday and 2pm Saturday to request a place. Please confirm your full name and ramblers membership. Places will be allocated by first come first served. You will receive an email with the start location and start time.
We reserve the right to refuse places to any who have previously failed to attend following booking a place.
Please be aware that any requests received before 7 pm on Friday will NOT be considered or receive a response.

Hike on Lancashire (Formerly Lancashire Young Persons Walking Group) organises walks, social activities and weekends away for people in their 30's, 40's anad 50s (although we don't have a strict age limit).
We go walking in the local area and beyond on Sundays throughout the year and also on weekday evenings in the summer.
We hope that our website provides you with all the information that you need. If not... use our contacts page and someone will get back to you.
See you on a walk soon!
We offer walks across Lancashire and beyond. Our walks vary in length and difficulty from short evening walks to more challenging hill walking. We aim to offer walks to suit everyone whatever your fitness level. Our weekends away allow us to explore interesting places further afield. To join us just select a walk and meet us at the start point. There's no need to book in advance.
Our members range from 30 to 50's. We always end our walks at a pub which is a great opportunity to get to know fellow members. Our social programme includes meals out, cinema and theatre nights.
We ask that regular walkers join the Ramblers Association and affiliate to our group (ML 50 Hike on Lancashire). For those who want to sample some walks before they join we ask for a donation of £1 to the Ramblers (a registered charity).
More details on our Join page
The group is run entirely by volunteers. Members lead anything from a short stroll to a 20 mile hike. We have quarterly social input evenings where members come along and volunteer walks and socials for the up and coming group programme. You can also come along to share your thoughts and ideas about the group or just come and catch up with friends.
