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. 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. If you are thinking of joining our walking group – please read our Welcome Page and Guidance for those attending Bogtrotters events.
