Walk this Way is Bolton’s Health Walk Programme. Walking is a great way to increase your physical activity levels. It’s FREE and doesn’t require specialist equipment. Joining our led walk programme is a fantastic way to meet new friends, socialise and improve your health.
All walks are in the local neighbourhood and are a fantastic way to meet new friends and socialise.

Level 1 Walks – Maximum 1-hour duration – gentle pace, good footpaths, fairly flat, no steps or stiles.
Level 2 Walks – 1 to 2-hour duration – medium pace, varied terrain, some gentle hills, occasional steps & / or stiles.
Level 3 Walks – Minimum 2 hours duration – brisk pace, uneven terrain, some challenging hills, steps & / or stiles.

Walking for Health
Walking for Health is England’s largest network of health walks with over 360 active walking schemes, helping people across the country lead a more active lifestyle. We’ve done this with great success for over 14 years, improving the mental and physical well-being of thousands of people.
Our walks are short and over easy terrain, and are open to everyone but are especially aimed at those who are least active.
Many of our walkers start walking to improve their health, but find it easy to keep coming back because of all the new friends they’ve made. So as well as all the physical health benefits, Walking for Health is also great for your social life!
