Our walks are graded as A, B, C or D. A walks are generally strenuous, B walks moderate and C moderate but easier than B. D walks are easiest, on tracks and shorter..
On Wednesday there is an A walk, a B walk and sometimes a D walk. There is an B walk on Saturday and Sunday. There is also a C walk on either Saturday or Sunday.
