Health walks

We’re coordinating and supporting a network of health walks across the county.

There are more than 60 regular, volunteer-run health walks across Lincolnshire’s seven districts, that all come under the national Ramblers Walking for Health scheme.  

The free walks can help boost your fitness and wellbeing, however you can gain so much more - learning about your local area, meeting new friends and improving your mental wellbeing. The walks are led by friendly, specially trained volunteers who are on hand to provide encouragement and support.

Discover the great outdoors with walks in the Lincolnshire countryside or strolls through local beauty spots.

What is a health walk?

All walks are free of charge and can last between 30 and 90 minutes. The routes start and finish at the same location. They give you a chance to learn about your local area and its wildlife, meet new friends and boost your mental wellbeing.

Walking is a great way to improve your physical health, here's a few positive things that walking can do for your health:

👣 Helps to lower blood pressure

👣 Improves sleep patterns

👣 Improves the flexibility and strength of joints

👣 Maintain/lose weight

👣 Reduces stress levels

👣 Reduces the risk of various diseases and illnesses

☕ Our walks are also very sociable and after most of them there is the chance for a chat and a cup of tea in a nearby café.

You can find your nearest walk here.

Just come along at the advertised time and join in! All our walks our free of charge, however certain groups ask for a donation towards refreshments.

You’ll need comfortable shoes, trainers or walking shoes/boots if you have them.

Bring your hats, gloves and scarfs if it’s going to be cool - you can always take them off. You could bring a light waterproof jacket if you’re unsure about the weather.

A small bottle of water will keep you hydrated, and it’s advisable to wear sun cream when walking in warm months. 

You must complete a ‘New Walker Registration’ form on your first walk, but after filling it in you can walk with any of the Lincolnshire Health Walk groups.

Well behaved dogs will be welcome if they are on a lead, however this is at the discretion of the volunteer walk leader.

All health walks welcome children to attend if they are with a parent/grandparent or guardian.

We hope to see you on a walk soon 👣
