Dorset Young Walkers are a friendly outdoor activities and social group established in 2003 and part of The Ramblers Association.
We organise regular weekend walks, events and socials across the beautiful countryside and coastal regions such as Dorchester, Poole, Bournemouth, Purbeck, Corfe, Cranborne Chase and Lyme Regis. As well as a variety of short to medium range walks exploring the Dorset countryside, we organise social events and weekends away such as camping trips.
