The Longer Walks Group started in 2015 and exists to provide more challenging walks for U3A members. The walks are generally 10 miles or more and could include significant ascents and descents.
Members are encouraged to suggest walks and lead them if they are happy to, though there is no requirement to do so. It is up to leaders to decide whether or not they need to pre-walk their routes. On recent walks the number of participants has averaged about twelve and we do not see the need to limit membership numbers.
The walks done so far have included some in the local area and some farther afield, including one at Avebury. Although some walks are based on Bath, where necessary we use buses or members' cars to get to the start and end of walks.
If you are interested and would like to come on one of our walks, you can phone the contact number in the U3A in Bath newsletter. New members are welcome.
