Derbyshire County Council have a number of Walks and Trails available on their website which offer a wide variety of options to explore some of the best scenery and outdoor spaces in the country.

As well as exploring green spaces in the local area, Bluetonic have a number of Blue Walks which explore walking routes close to rivers, canals and ponds around Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire. 

Walk Derbyshire- Free

Walk Derbyshire is a series of Erewash volunteer led walks that provide low intensity exercise which are suitable for people of all abilities. The walks are mostly on flat ground and are varied week by week. All the walks are led by trained walk leaders who will make sure the walk goes at a pace that suits everyone. Walking groups are a great way to meet new friends and discover the natural beauty of the green spaces across Erewash. And best of all it's free!. Remember to wear sturdy flat shoes and bring a waterproof coat.

Interested in volunteering?

Without our volunteers we wouldn’t be able to run our walks. Volunteering is a great way to engage with the community, helping to keep people active and healthy, whilst enjoying the outdoors!

As a volunteer you will be working with like-minded people to help plan and lead walking routes. You will receive specialist training and constant support from the Walk Derbyshire programme.
