Walk Classifications Explained


Strolls. These have been introduced to the programme to cater for those members who need to walk at a more leisurely pace than before.  The emphasis is on a leisurely pace.  There is no rush and there will always be time for anybody at the back to catch up if needs be.  Strolls are no more than 3.5 miles long and usually less than that.  They can be hilly in places but hills will not be long and steep and hilly strolls will be shorter to accommodate the slower pace up hills.


Rambles.  These are what may be considered as normal walks of old.  The pace will be faster than a stroll but slower walkers will be accommodated if they fall behind.  It is important to note the type of countryside a ramble is going through.  By definition, hilly countryside will be more taxing than a flat walk.  Most rambles will be morning walks but some may extend into the afternoon.


Hikes.  These will be more challenging than rambles in a number of possible ways.  The speed of walking may not be much quicker than a ramble but walkers are expected to keep up with the group.  The exception to this is on hills.  On these walkers can climb at their own speed.  There will be no pressure to get to the top quickly and everybody is grateful for a rest after a steep hill.  Hikes will usually be more than six miles and usually run into the afternoon.  Some will be all-day walks.  It is unlikely that a hike will be entirely along flat paths unless it is longer than usual.
