Dorset Health Walks

A health walk is a free, short and regular guided walk that lasts between ten to ninety minutes for people of all abilities, especially for those who would like to get more active.

Specially trained volunteer health walk leaders are on hand to welcome you with a friendly smile, provide encouragement and support you throughout the walk.

These community walks give you the opportunity to discover new places, a great way to meet new people and the chance for a social cuppa afterwards.

Walking is the perfect activity to improve your health and wellbeing. If you are looking to get more active and would like to walk in the company of others, then a health walk could be for you!
