Hampstead Heath "Challenging" walk - Camden Health walks - FREE gentle, social walking group

Free Camden Health walks. Our health walks are a gentle way to get active, explore your local area and to meet new people. These walks are led by qualified Rambler's walking for health leaders and are typically 30-90 minutes in length, taken at a gentle pace over easy terrain. This is our "challenging" walk which is a bit faster and longer than some of our other walks. This walk goes across the Heath following a different route each week, often diverging from the main paths, so be prepared for uneven ground and walking uphill. After about an hour, the group stops for refreshments at Kenwood or Parliament Hill Café, occasionally venturing further afield to Golders Hill Park. Participants can either make their own way home or join the walk leaders to return by a shorter route to the starting point opposite Hampstead Heath Overground station. Please wear shoes comfortable for walking in and bear in mind that the Heath can be muddy. You don’t need anything special but avoid open-toed shoes and smooth soles. No booking required! The walks are very social, allowing you to meet new people - there's often chances to socialise at the end over a hot drink! Note - the walks run every week except for bank holidays! You'll be registered with the national walking for health scheme - either through signing up online, or by filling in a registration form on your first walk. You'll only need to fill this in once.
