Gloucestershire Outdoor Group is a social walking group which offers walks, weekends away and a wide range of other outdoor activities. Our members are people who like to be part of and contribute to a social group.

Members are expected to offer events on the programme for all to enjoy and we have plan the programme every three months


Our activities are organised to fit around working commitments.  Events include weekend and  weekday walks, and weekends to cottages, bunkhouses and camping in the Summer months. On Summer evenings we also have shorter walks. The group has also been known to venture off on walking trips to Europe, organised by individuals.

The group was started in 1952 and currently has over 100 members.


When walking with the group you will simply need suitable kit and sufficient food and drink for the type of walk and weather conditions. If in doubt the walk organiser will be able to advise.
