Women Only Walks was first established in 1996 to encourage women in South Yorkshire to get to know their local countryside and to promote safe access and an opportunity to explore new areas of South Yorkshire. Walks have been led over the years by a wide variety of women including a number of voluntary walk leaders, rangers from the local authorities in Rotherham, Sheffield and Doncaster and the Forestry Commission.
Do you want to walk more but don’t know where to go, or would like to walk with other women sharing your experience of the countryside?
Our aim is to provide opportunities for women to join other women to walk at their own pace in a safe friendly environment. Over the years the women who have come on the walks do so for a variety of reasons; sometimes it is all about building up confidence to explore the countryside and we offer a warm welcome to those of you who maybe are looking at this website for the first time.
