We aim to provide regular walking and social activities in a friendly, supportive group.

Call it walking, hiking or rambling this is what the Bogtrotters do. We also organise longer weekends away and tours in Britain and Abroad. Our members are drawn from Dunstable and its surrounding area. The group was formed in September 1965. Our programme consists of local full and half day walks, midweek meanders, a varied social programme and trips away. We provide activities for all levels of walking ability. For more information about us please visit our Welcome Page and Guidance for those attending Bogtrotters events.
