Walks - Short (Happy Wanderers)
Short Walks (about 3 miles) will generally take place on the third Tuesday of each month. The dates and details (when available) of walks are shown below. There is no commitment to come on every walk, just join in when you fancy it.
Meet at the Southern Road Recreation Ground Car Park at 9:30 am to arrange car sharing. Please let the walk leader for the day know if you intend to go directly to the start of a walk. Any queries contact group/walk leader on the day between 9am and 9.15am.
The short walks will:
- only walk from April to October
- walk NO MORE than 3 miles
- car share for most walks or occasionally use the 280 bus or walk directly from the Scout HQ
- try to arrange walks requiring no more than a 30 minute drive
- NOT avoid hills, but will try to avoid long steep sections
- NOT avoid stiles but try to avoid too many
- NOT plan walks to always end at a pub/café, though this may happen from time to time
- walk at a gentle pace
- cancel if weather is too bad (tend NOT to leave Thame if it is raining at 9.30)
Even during April to October some of the walks are likely to be muddy, so it is important that you come with boots or strong, suitable shoes. Everyday light shoes will not be suitable and would be ruined very quickly. It is also important to wear, or bring, a waterproof coat of anorak.
Details of each walk will be sent out about 2 weeks before the due date.
Please note walkers take part at their own risk
The dates for walks in 2019 are shown below and more details will be added when the routes for the walks are announced. A summary of the walks in 2018 are also shown below.
