Running from Tuesday 1 to Thursday 31 May, the festival has increased in size yet again, and is now offering 369 free guided walks exploring local towns, cities, countryside, canals, riversides and parks across Greater Manchester.
The festival is being coordinated by Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM), with support from many local walking groups and charities, and aims to showcase all that the region has to offer.
Walks cater for all abilities and interests, whether it’s an easy-on-the-legs family story ramble through the Wigan countryside or a more challenging evening trek around Blackstone Edge to watch the sun set.
There are also some more quirky and imaginative walks to get involved in, such as a stroll around Peel Park with a bat detector or a wheelchair-friendly mountain trike ramble around Dovestone Reservoir.
The full list of walks can be found at The Greater Manchester Walking Festival website.
