Hertfordshire Health Walks
Hertfordshire Health Walks is a countywide initiative of free, led walks coordinated by Countryside Management Service (CMS). It aims to help promote walking and encourage more people (all ages, backgrounds and abilities) to get outdoors, get more active and reap the benefits.
The Hertfordshire Health Walks schemes have around 270 trained volunteers leading a programme of 55 walks a week. We work in partnership with a variety of organisations throughout the county as well as forming part of the national campaign, Walking for Health (WfH).
Walking is a real positive for your health. It has been shown that walking improves mental and physical wellbeing and can also prevent, help manage and rehabilitate from ilnesses. Hertfordshire Health Walks are an ideal way of taking exercise. There are local walks to suit all ages and abilities and completely FREE.
Lots more information, including local schedules, is availbale on the Health Walks website.
