Find the best Hemel Hempstead walks. The Ramblers Association now have a greatly improved website which is an exceptional resource for all walkers, hikers and young families wanting to go for walks with young children. This site lists everything from historical walks to leader led walks to any really arduous walks within the Bobsleigh Inn area.

Find A Walk Near Me by Walking Britain is a truly excellent and free resource. Just enter where you are or where you would like to walk - and print out directions. The walks are graded and you can buy a specific map of the area at the same time. These are proper OS maps and weather proofed if required.

I always think of walking as one of the few activities you can do for free - and now you can with this guide!

Walking, Hiking and Outdoor Shops

Snow + Rock

Hemel Snow Centre, St Albans Hill, Hemel Hempstead HP3 9NH, UK – 01442 250099

Well located beneath the Hemel Snow Centre, and beyond that pretty much standard as for any Snow and Rock that I have been to. You DO have to ask to get service, they will price match, they are slightly understaffed, but the selection is good and when you get an assistant they are normally knowledgeable and do not condescend you if you are new to the sport. Quite often their package deals are far cheaper than on the net, as I kitted out my little one for a bargain price. So leave a little time when you arrive, browse and you will be fine.

Very good good prices on winter coats in the sale at the moment


185 Marlowes, Hemel Hempstead HP1 1BB, UK – 01442 500634

Cycle Surgery

Hemel Snow Centre, St Albans Hill, Hemel Hempstead HP3 9NH, UK – 01442 868758

did harry winks come here to get his bike fixed?

I've been to the Hemel branch of Cycle Surgery quite a few times. They know what they're doing when it comes to bike services and they are happy to search the net to find a cheaper price product so that they can price match for you. I recently ordered a new bike on the net from another shop but when it arrived the gearing wasn't set up brilliantly. I wanted to get some accessories for the bike so I went it to Hemel Branch. I mentioned the issue to Dan who was more than happy to take a look. In the space of a few minutes, he had it sorted at no cost. He then jumped on the net and matched the prices of the items I wanted to buy and I went away a happy customer. I would highly recommend this shop and this branch. It's also linked to the indoor Ski slope which is always fun to visit.

Another good one. Walkingworld has huge library of guides with a good selection of walks, of varying lengths and grades, pretty well anywhere in the UK. The walks come in an excellent format making them very easy to follow, with photographs to illustrate every important decision point and a proper Ordnance Survey map.

A modist annual subscription gives you unlimited access to all the walks. However you can Pay As Go by downloading indiviual walks.

Crucially you can also find walks France, Spain, Norway, Portugal and Australia!
