Welcome to Alton Ramblers website
We run regular walks in the Alton area during the week, on Sundays and, in the summer, in the evening. The weekday walks are on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday. One week there are two, offering the opportunity to do a short one (up to 5 miles) or a longer one (up to 10 miles). The following week, there is a medium length walk from 5 to 7 miles. The Sunday walks vary from about 10 miles to 12 or sometimes 14. So there is plenty to choose from.
We are a friendly group so do come along to enjoy a sociable walk in the beautiful countryside of Hampshire.
If you click on any of the up and coming walks in the box to the left, you will find more information, together with a map showing the location of the start.
