Just starting
« on: 10:58:28, 07/03/19 »
Morning everyone, just looking to get into some hill walking over at the Lake District...Iím pretty fit but I donít have any experience, can anyone suggest a group I can tag along with at the end of March or beginning of April?


Iím 38 years old and live in gateshead and would love a new hobby that gets me outdoors and enjoying some of the beautiful scenery in the UK


Iím just about to buy some hiking shoes so it looks like things are getting serious!

Welcome to the forum.
It might help if you could give your general location and a few other details, like your age for instance, so that anyone reading your post could make a sensible suggestion.
I know there is an informal group in Windermere as an acquaintance walks with them, but they seem to be at the more mature end of the age range.

Use the link to check out a very good website. I was a member and met up with several walking companions some years ago. There is a section for you to look for partners and you can pretty much set your preferences, such as age of other person, walking experience, areas to visit.


They also do kit reviews, accommodation reviews, and lots of other advice is available.


Give it a go.
