This is a great opportunity to improve access to your local area and learn more about your local path routes.
You’ll work within your local area to audit existing paths capturing information on their condition and if they are part of a larger network.
You can also be asked to capture the hidden paths in your local area and add them to the path network.
With support and training you will be asked to use online apps to record the information on their path network on your phone or at home.
Once the volunteer Ramblers have captured the paths they can support your local community to develop local routes for health, heritage or nature to encourage people to get out and about and explore their local area.
