Walking In Norfolk

Health Walking in Norfolk

For those wanting to do more walking in Norfolk, Health Walks are offered regularly and are open to everyone. This includes those who are inactive, as well as those able to walk up to four miles. These programmes are also delivered with support from Norfolk County Council Public Health.

You will be walking in a group using the network of local footpaths, quiet back lanes, woodlands and river valleys around Norfolk.

Walking for health is a moderate paced series of walks suitable for everyone. Therefore you will be encouraged to walk at a pace where you get the best benefit from moderate exercise.

Please note: Walk leaders do not take responsibility for assisting adults on the walks. If you need assistance for the walk please come with another responsible adult, and ensure you’ve filled in the Carer Responsibility Form in advance.

For solo walking trails, check out the Norfolk trails website.

For details on accessible walks around Norfolk to take on solo or with a friend or carer, check out our On The Move Outdoors section.
