Welcome to the Hertfordshire Health Walks
Hertfordshire Health Walks is a countywide initiative of free, led walks and is coordinated by Countryside Management Service (CMS). It aims to help promote walking and encourage more people (all ages, backgrounds and abilities) to get outdoors, get more active and reap the benefits.
The Hertfordshire Health Walks schemes have around 180 trained volunteers leading a programme of 40 walks a week in seven main areas: Dacorum, Watford & Three Rivers, St Albans, Harpenden & Villages, Hitchin & Letchworth, Bishop's Stortford, Hertsmere & Hertford. We work in partnership with a variety of organisations throughout the county as well as forming part of the national campaign, Walking for Health (WfH).
Visit Our Health Walks for more information on each individual scheme, with easy-print black and white versions of the current leaflets also available. Maps of a selection of the walks are available on the Walk4Life website.
Once you have identified which walk you would like to walk on, please join up ahead of your first walk. Simply visit the online join up page, or if you prefer arrive ten minutes ahead of the start time to complete our new walker form.
