Join us

It is expected that individuals will be contactable via email which is the primary method of keeping in touch with members. To join, contact us through our Secretary who will send you details of the next walk.

Prospective members are invited to check out the club by doing an initial walk with us to get to know the group and how it operates. After that they are free to join formally. It is expected that prospective members will have done at least one day walk with us before participating in the residential day walks of 2 to 5 days mentioned above.

Walkers don’t have to register in advance for day walks. They just have to be present at the designated meeting spot in good time for a prompt start at the designated time.

Walk protocols

While walks are carefully planned and described, we all have individual responsibility for making sure we are adequately equipped, and follow the current Instructions to Walkers and Walkers' Responsibilities for Safety on the Trail. Each of us signs an Attendance and Acknowledgement of Risks Form at the beginning of each walk.

     How to become a member   

     Please first read the rules of the association, which include the statement of the purposes of the association.

     Undertake a day walk as a visitor, in order to see if the association is likely to be a good fit for you.

     Then if you desire, submit a formal application, as follows

     In order to become a member, a person shall make a written application to the Secretary of the Association, Joan  Kenny, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., including
