walking to protect our local countryside

Goathland railway walk May 13 11The walks programme is designed for members of the Ramblers' Association, but potential members are welcome to join us for two or three walks to decide whether to join the Association.

All Ramblers members in the area receive our walks programme twice yearly in booklet form. This contains details of several hundred walks contributed by our constituent groups. Non-members are welcome to join us on any of these walks. If you have not walked with us before please introduce yourself to the leader. Each RA Group in the area organises a programme of led walks which our Rambles Secretary co-ordinates in order to produce the booklet. 

These range from under five miles to 15 miles in length. To get a flavour of where we walk and distances involved, have a look at Walks Finder. The starting point of a walk is given by name, Ordnance Survey grid reference and indicated on a map.
