Lincoln Health Walks

Walking for Health

Part of the Lincolnshire Health Walks Scheme, all walks can help boost your fitness and wellbeing. They also provide the opportunity to learn more about your local area, explore the great outdoors as well as meet new people. The walks are all led by friendly, trained volunteers who are on hand to provide encouragement and support. All walks are free, typically lasting approximately 60 minutes and always start and finish at the same location. What better way to get active, make new friends and get out in the fresh air!

All walks are in-line with current Ramblers Walking for Health and government guidelines for outdoor fitness and social distancing.
