This is a relaxed, sociable group for members who like to walk for 2–3 hours on easier terrain than the Hikers. A certain level of fitness is required to make the walks enjoyable for everyone.  If you are able to walk around the Mount and along Pilot Bay within the space of an hour this will give you an approximate idea of the speed we walk at.  Car sharing is encouraged.
