Winter walking week 2018


Together with our partners from walking groups across the region, we have once more joined forces to offer an incredible 100+ walks for everyone in Greater Manchester to take part in.

Our online guide enables you to filter by district and level of difficulty and the key lets you discover routes which are wheelchair friendly, suitable for buggies or that will welcome your four-legged friend!

As always, we can promise a mix of urban and countryside walks with the beautiful parks of Greater Manchester thrown in for good measure. Take the opportunity to visit an area you haven’t been to before, learn something about your local surroundings or seek out spectacular views from higher ground.

We look forward to seeing you out there!

Click on the below button for more details of the walks and use the filters at the top of the page to help you choose which walk you would like to attend.

Safety and guidance

What to wear and bring

Please wear comfortable and sturdy shoes or boots for all walks.
Winter weather can be unpredictable so be prepared with a waterproof coat or jacket. Wearing a few layers is advisable so you can take one or two off if you warm up.
Be sure to bring water and a snack as not all walks offer opportunities for refreshments.

Health and safety

All walks are taken at your own risk. Walk leaders take care to ensure that the walks are undertaken in a safe manner. Transport for Greater Manchester and walk leaders are not responsible for any accidents or injuries that may occur.

Things to note

Some of the walks in this brochure are accessible to people with limited mobility. However it is recommended that you check with the walk organiser prior to a walk if you have any specific requirements, including wheelchair access, or if you are unable to step over stiles.

Please arrive 10 minutes before a walk begins so that you can locate the group and be ready to start the walk at the right time.
Walks may also be cancelled or modified due to adverse weather conditions, so please ring the contact number listed to make sure the walk is taking place.

It is advisable to check the meeting location in advance with the organiser.

Getting to and from the walks

We do our best to ensure that all walks are accessible by public transport and where possible give details under each listed walk. Why not go green and use public transport to get to a walk near you?
