The Bloomfield Walking Group meets on the last Saturday of each month between September and June each year. The group meets at 9.00am outside Bloomfield Presbyterian Church prior to travelling to the starting point of each walk.
The walks are a mix of low level walks such as forest parks and coastal rambles to high level walks, generally in the mountains. Distances generally range between 6 and 9 miles.
This is a great opportunity to get fit, seek out fresh air, meet new friends and discover new areas of Northern Ireland.
You’ll need to bring suitable walking shoes or boots, warm and waterproof clothing and a packed lunch.
