Call it walking, hiking or rambling this is what the Bogtrotters do. Our members are drawn from Dunstable and its surrounding area. Our programme consists of local full and half day walks, midweek meanders, a varied social programme and trips. We organise walking weekends away and tours in Britain and abroad. We provide activities for all levels of walking ability. New members are always welcome.
