About Us

Somerset Young Walkers is one of over fifty Ramblers groups, mainly aimed at young people with an interest in walking. The group was set up in 2002, originally called Somerset Walking & Activity Group (SWAG), but was renamed to Somerset Young Walkers in 2017 and now has over 70 members.

The group is run by a committee with all our walks and social events being organised by members of the group.

Walks are usually held on Sundays. We try to cater for all levels of ability by providing walks of varying distances across different terrains from gentle lowland walks to tough hill and mountain walks. You can find out more information about length and difficulty on our FAQ page.

Social events include pub nights, meals out, ten-pin bowling and trips to the cinema. We have weekend trips away and these are spent youth hostelling, in B&Bs or camping.
