If you normally use a car, walk and ride could transform your walking. You’ll see so much more by replacing one leg of the walk with a short bus (or train) ride.

If you’re tired of having to walk round in circles to end up back at a car or if you would like to see twice as much of our stunning National Park without having to take twice as long to do so, try a buswalk or trainwalk.

You will find that by dumping the car and trying walk and ride you’ll rediscover your lost walking freedom.
