Walking is one of AOAC's most popular club activities.
Ninety seven percent of new members put walking down as an activity they would like to do.Walking is a great introduction to the club and a good way to get to know club members; there is always someone who can tell you about other activities that are going on.
The walking group aims to organise two day walks per month; evening walk’s in the summer and one weekend away every two months. There will also be opportunities to try more challenging walks in more distant areas including Scotland, Lake District and elsewhere in Europe.Day walks tend to be local, in the Mendips, Cotswolds, Brecon Beacons and the Black mountains as well as around Bristol and Bath, where we are lucky to be surrounded by some great countryside. Walking is a great way to get to know it.
All walks are graded so you can decide if the walk is the right level for you.
The group is looking for people to help lead walks. If you are interested in leading a walk but don’t feel confident there is training and there are walk mentors available to support you. We may also contribute towards the cost of obtaining a recognised Walking Group Leader (WGL) or Mountain Leader (ML) qualification in exchange for leading some walks for the club
