Welcome to Take A Hike – the Leeds and Bradford young persons’ walking group.

We are a very friendly walking group run by the members and part of the Ramblers Association.

We have at least one walk organised every weekend (usually more!) and new members are always welcome to come along and get their boots dirty. Our walks vary from everything between easy four-mile rambles to masochistic fourteen-mile hikes across the dales so you will always find something suited to your tastes.

Grasmere Week Away 2016 – Updated August 2016

There are still places available for the Grasmere week away 24th to 28th October. For full details please see the socials page.  If you are interested please contact Neil ASAP to reserve a place.

New Website Is Coming

Work has now started on our new website and there are changes in the way we put Walks and Socials on the website. 

How to contribute a Walk or Social on the new website.

The Walks and Socials will need to be submitted through the Ramblers ‘Walks and Events Manager’ website by logging into your Ramblers account, details can be found in this document ‘Getting started for contributors’. This document give details of creating your Ramblers account (if you do not already have one) and the information you will need to e-mail to Walks Secretary at walks[at]takeahike.org.uk (replace the [at] with an @ symbol) who will set you up as a contributor.

We would like to ask everyone that has contributed to the Walks and Socials programme over the years to become a contributor, it does not take long to do.  If you would like to contribute to the Walks and Socials then please also register for the ‘Walks and Events Manager’. 

Whilst the new website is under construction and you been set up as a contributor, you may like to try the new system for submitting a Walk or Social by adding a walk or event with a title of ‘Test Walk’ or ‘Test Social’.

Please download and read the document ‘Getting started for contributors’.
