Ramblers GB is suspending all volunteer activities from Wednesday 18 March 2020. This includes group led walks, Walking for Health schemes, all training including walk leadership training, path maintenance working groups, coach trips and holidays, meetings, group and social events.
We have received updated advice from the Ramblers. I am sure it won't come as a surprise to anyone when we say that our walks are suspended until further notice.
Once we feel it is safe, and it is responsible to travel to walks, we will produce a new walks programme. As you will understand, social distancing rules make this impossible at the moment.
We will keep you updated with the latest information on our response to the COVID-19 virus on https://www.ramblers.org.uk/coronavirus
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.
