About Us

Who we are

GlenCoe, Scotland

Part of the Ramblers', we are a fairly new group based in the Tees Valley area. We cover County Durham, The Yorkshire Dales, The North York Moors and The Cleveland Hills. Catering for 20- and 30-somethings (but there really is no upper age limit), we are the only such walking group between Northumbria and York. We currently have around 45 members with new people joining all the time. Our region is one of the best in Britain with numerous areas of outstanding natural beauty, national parks and lovely rural areas such as Weardale, Teesdale, Wensleydale, Swaledale, Coverdale and Nidderdale.


Our Walks

GR5 Trail, France

Walks take place Saturdays or Sundays, starting between 10am and 11am, depending on time of year. The grades of walks cover most ability levels, from easy five mile walks lasting around two hours to moderate four or five hour hikes. We also organise weekend and week-long trips. Recent outings included weekend trips to Loch Lomond, Peak District, Glencoe, the Lake District and Snowdonia, we have also successfully completed the Hadrian's Wall trail in 2006, Dales Way in 2007, Wainwright's Coast to Coast in June 2008 and in 2009 we completed sections of the Grande Randonnée 5 (GR5) in France. Check out our walks programme for more details of future walks.

Social Events

We also organise social events each month. Previous socials have included ice skating, theatre nights, comedy club outings and a beach bonfire and fireworks party. Suggestions for future events come from all members.
