The Autumn Footprints Festival,
from Saturday 9th to Sunday 24th September 2017, offers a great choice of 43 free guided walks. Sixteen days of enjoyable walks and informative talks with something for everyone of all abilities.
Set in picturesque Derbyshire, The Autumn Footprints Walking Festival takes place in an area known for its natural beauty and superb scenery. Popular with both novice and experienced walkers wanting to enjoy the beautiful colours of autumn and the area's fabulous views, undulating countryside, industrial heritage and attractive towns and villages
Led by knowledgeable local volunteers and staff keen to show off their patch, you will discover a wide variety of walks to explore local heritage, natural history and wildlife. The routes take in walks alongside rivers and canals, as well as through open countryside, towns and villages.
All walks are FREE OF CHARGE. However, there may be a parking charge (see symbols on individual walks). Booking is recommended for all the walks and essential for some.
