While this listing of walks is up-to-date at time of publishing, it is sometimes necessary to cancel or change a planned walk for reasons such as leader unavailability, closed roads or poor weather. It is also Boots N’ All policy that a minimum of 2 persons of the same gender (this can include the leader) will need to register before the walk can go ahead.

C    Climbing sections using rocks and vegetation as hand holds.
D    Drive distance requires early departure – usually 7:30 am
E    Exposed alpine conditions – can be dangerous in poor weather if not fully equipped – see below.
L    A long day’s walk – in excess of 3 hours each way.
M   Marshy or muddy sections – be prepared to walk with wet feet.
S    Steep incline for at least part of the way
