Come & join our friendly, knowledgeable guides on this selection of guided walks that will lead you through the scenic Powys countryside. Walks range form 1 ¼ to 7 miles, one is easy, one is strenuous, most are moderate. An evening ramble, collage making for children in the hills, introductions to sections of some of our iconic longer distance trails, walks near or to ancient castles and an easy access towpath stroll ………. there should be something to tempt you!
Advance booking is required for all of the events.
Please read the information below before booking on any walk.
New walks program 2014 coming soon.
We want you to enjoy the walk you choose so please make sure you are fit enough. We have graded the walks as shown below.
Easy - suitable for most levels of fitness, this walk will be undertaken at a gentle pace. Remember that the ground may be wet and muddy so wear comfortable walking shoes/boots with grip on the soles.
Moderate – a moderate level of fitness is required as there may be some steep sections. Strong shoes or boots with a good grip are needed, with boots specifically designed for walking being recommended.
Strenuous – long, hard climbs over tough terrain – a good level of fitness is required. Walking boots are essential.
Walk gradings are provided as a general guide only. If you have any doubt about your fitness for a particular walk please contact the Recreational Trails Officer, Powys County Council on 01597 827500 e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.. Please also bear in mind the distance of the walk, varying conditions under foot and the possibility of bad weather, which can make a walk more difficult than planned. If you’re unsure of your fitness level, try a short and easy walk first: it’s much better to find a walk a little too slow and easy than to make yourself miserable and exhausted. Leaders may refuse to accept participants who in their opinion are inadequately equipped or unfit.
TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF : Powys County Council cannot accept liability for any injury or loss suffered by any person, as a result of taking part in these activities. Any person contemplating taking part in any of these walks should satisfy themselves that the walk is suitable for them.
WHAT TO BRING : Waterproofs, comfortable walking shoes/boots with grip, sun protection, a drink and a snack or packed lunch.
Young people under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
Dogs are welcome on some of the walks. Where dogs are not allowed it is clearly shown.
If you bring your dog it must be kept under close control at all times and only be allowed off the lead with the leader’s permission. The leader can refuse to accept dogs on the walk if they are not under close control. If there are stiles on the walk will it be able to cope with these?
WHAT HAPPENS ON A GUIDED WALK?
Please turn up at the meeting point a little before the start time where you will be met by the leader. The leader will tell you about the walk and check that everyone has the right clothing and footwear. During the walk everyone will stay together at a suitable pace, no one will be left behind. The leader will tell you about points of interest along the route. At the end of the walk you will be asked to complete a feedback form to let us know what you thought about the event.
We look forward to meeting you on a Trail Tempter this year!
