On Tuesday mornings we usually hike for 1.5/2hrs and vary the routes to make the most of what's on our doorstep. Sticking to footpaths, bridleways, and sometimes on country lanes we take in some lovely views. We always welcome new hikers and nobody ever gets left behind. We don't tend to stop off for coffee/cake on our morning hikes but there is a cafe on the green if you need refreshments after your hike!
7.30 pm various locations around Dorking
The girls ALIVE hikers meet outside the Denbies main building. There's plenty of free parking and we have a variety of route options available to us, each of which includes a hill climb (or two). The beauty of the Denbies / Ranmore hillside is that the paths are wide, providing plenty of space to walk side by side, and the routes can be tailored to avoid any muddy segments. We cover approximately 6km in around 90 minutes, although this will probably get longer as the evenings get lighter.
Thursday morning Woodland Walk
9.30 am, Holmwood Common
A gently paced walk through the beautiful Holmwood Common. Take in the stunning woodland and wildlife as you stroll the circular route lasting approximately one hour.
Sunday hike fortnightly
9.00 am, various meet points
Our Sunday hikes are designed for those wanting to discover the stunning countryside and walking routes on our doorstep (or sometimes a little further afield). We generally walk around 5 to 6 miles, these hikes are for those with a reasonable level of fitness. As with all girls ALIVE activities, no one is ever left behind and we'll always help and support each other along the way. Coffee and cake stops will be factored into routes wherever possible.
