It’s free, easy to do and one of the simplest ways of getting more active.

It is recommended that we take 10,000 steps every day. There are a range of programmes available in Dudley to help people to increase their activity levels through walking more. Whether you want to walk as part of a group, or on your own at a time and place that suits you, there is something for you in the borough.

Check your health with our lifestyle quiz, this will tell you if you are moving enough and if joining a walk could benefit your health.

Our health walks

The Ramblers Wellbeing Walks Dudley (formerly Walking for Health) is a programme of weekly short walks across the borough between 30 minutes and 90 minutes in duration.

Currently we are unable to re-start many of our walks due to a shortage of walk leaders. Walks that are able to re-start will be listed below.  Please get in touch if you or someone you know is interested in becoming a Walk Leader. Training is provided which is free of charge

Independent walking

If health walks aren’t for you, you can walk at a time and place that suits you. There are plenty of great routes in the borough in parks, nature reserves and along the canal towpaths. In order to encourage people to walk more the following resources are available;

Signage in parks – There are signage boards in most parks showing routes within the parks, giving information on time and distance

Walking Trails –  Self-guided walks have been created to explore the history and heritage of the borough. Please view them here.
