Walking and hiking are great ways to get out and enjoy the outdoors. There are number of routes around Hollingworth Lake that can take you around the lake or up and over the hills. We aim to offer you the skills and advice to get out there safely and competently.
It isn't just good exercise, it's also a great way to enjoy yourself.
