Guildford WalkFest 2014

Guildford WalkFest 2014 runs from 12 to 27 July 2014. In its eighth consecutive year, this walking festival is aimed at raising awareness of Guildford's attractions and beautiful countryside including the Surrey Hills AONB. Local groups supply the walks and there are some new walks this year along with some popular favourites.

All walks are free, some ask for a donation, most are accessible by public transport and many welcome dogs. There are 38 guided walks spread over 16 days, with two each weekday and three each day at weekends. They range from half mile around town to 16 miles over Surrey's beautiful hills and along the river valley. The walks cover many different themes giving you chance to learn about local history, public art, local environmental projects and even the medicinal herbs that grow on the downs. There is one walk specifically for dog walkers, one walk welcoming people of limited ability, something for everyone.

Length

The length (in miles) of a walk is an approximation of the overall of the walking guide, not a measure of the distance "as the crow flies" between any two points. This is based on the GPX file that was created when the author walked the route and rounded to the nearest mile.length

Grade (Boots)

The grade of a walk is an indicator of how difficult it is to walk. This does not take into account the walk length but does suggest how challenging the walk will be. An easy walk, graded as 1 (and shown as 1 walking boot) indicates a walk that is essentially flat, has no sharp hills to climb, has no stiles or other obstacles, is easy to navigate (probably along a well-worn path) and is suitable for most levels of fitness. Do be aware that the level of stamina required will vary and you should only walk within your limits - the indication of walk length will help with this. A difficult walk, graded as 5 (and represented by 5 boots) indicates a walk that is strenuous and involves steep ascents and/or descents. It may be technically challenging involving difficult terrain or obstacles.

Please note that the grading for walks is subjective and open to interpretation and should only be used as a guide when selecting a walk.
