Grades of walk –  / ∗∗ / ∗∗∗

Walks are ‘star’ graded according to factors such as distance, terrain and ascent. A change in weather can also affect the difficulty of a walk. Use these grades as a guide for which walks to try:

1* Walks will generally be gentle paced and over easy terrain such as lowland hills (e.g. Sandstone Trail in Cheshire).

CDWG Christmas Weekend in Malham - December 2014 (6)

2** Walks may be longer in distance, involve more ascent or cover rougher terrain but with no technical ability required (e.g. Moel Famau in the Clwydians).

Walking in Penycloddiau early 2012

3*** Walks may be faster paced or a longer distance and will usually involve steep ascents over rough ground, often involving scrambling and requiring a good head for heights (e.g. Carneddau or the Glyders in Snowdonia).

Transport and attendance

Chester and District Walking Group encourages members to share transport to walks where possible. We ask that you pay the driver towards the cost of petrol and don’t forget to bring a change of shoes or plastic bag to put your muddy boots in on the way home.

Walk details may be subject to change, so please contact the walk leader to confirm your attendance and the walk details.

Please note, we do not allow dogs or under-18s on our walks.
