A New Website For Walkers In Hertfordshire

2nd of March 2006

There’s no doubt about it, walking is good for you. It’s good for your heart, it’s good for your lungs, it’s good for the muscle and bone growth of your children and it’s good for your feeling of wellbeing! Strong scientific evidence now supports the many benefits to health of regular walking – it is recommended that we take at least 10,000 steps a day.
Studies show that walking can:
¥ Reduce the risk of coronary heart disease and stroke
¥ Lower blood pressure
¥ Reduce high cholesterol and improve blood lipid profile
¥ Reduce body fat
¥ Enhance mental well being
So, how do you find out what is on offer? gives you all the information you need for the best walking in the County.
Guided walks: Eighty walks detailed every month. The website tells you how long the walk is, which group is running it, when and where it starts and a contact number in case of questions.
Books of walks: There are more than twenty books of walks for the County. All the details are here. Leaflets of walks: More than eighty leaflets are produced around the County, many of them difficult to find. Not any more! list them all.
Walking groups: Every walking group in the County is listed (more than 35 of them!).
