The Consett Hiking Group

The Consett Hiking Group was formed in January 2017 by Keiron Young. Our group began meeting on Sunday mornings to enjoy walks around the local area.

We are now an unregistered charity and have obtained funding to provide walks for different community groups. All our walks are free of charge and always will be!

We have an annual challenge walk called the Steel Town 20, a 20 mile circular walk that begins and ends at Allensford.

To join the Consett Hiking Group please find us on Facebook or simply turn up to one of the walks listed in the Walks Timetable.


Mission Statement

The purpose of the Consett Hiking Group is to facilitate guided walks for the benefit of the community. We aim to stimulate physical activity, improve stamina and good health, by encouraging people to walk, in a non competitive, social environment, towards improving their wellness and mental health, through green exercise; whilst exploring and discovering the local countryside, history, wildlife and heritage. Walks are free, convivial, and can be tailored to meet the needs of specific community groups.
