Walking is an excellent way to improve physical health. The slower pace (compared to running or cycling) also allows the more inquisitive walker to take notice of their surroundings, spot wildlife, and identify plant-life and geological features.

Just getting out for a short walk in local parks, woodland, or nature spots can help to improve mental health. In fact, many villages, towns, and cities have local walking groups. These are a great way to meet likeminded people and provide opportunities to explore different areas.

There are also more challenging types of walking, such as hill and moorland hiking, and mountaineering. These can encompass everything from short fell walks through to full expeditions with wild camping.

Some popular UK routes can include scrambling, others roped climbing, and the more technical routes a combination of both.
