A Covid-19 risk assessment has been written that will be used alongside the usual Walk Leader's risk assessment to provide a safe walking experience.

Visit this website and our Facebook page to receive updated news. In the meantime, enjoy walking safely by following the Welsh Government advice

Where possible we advise you should also:
  • avoid touching surfaces with your hands, consider wearing gloves.
  • consider using alternative routes that do not pass through gardens or farm yards where social distancing may be difficult or the possibility of entering an isolation area.
  • consider avoiding popular locations and busy times of day if you can.
