Active Inclusion Hike – Gomshall to Guildford

12th August 2023, 10:45 - 19:00



Surrey Hills Society is leading and facilitating an 8-mile hike from Gomshall station to Guildford station for Active Inclusion, the UK’s biggest Muslim hiking group.





As we have 100 participants from Active Inclusion already taking part, there are only limited spaces left!

The hike will be approximately 8 miles including some challenging climbs. We will be meeting at Guildford station and hopping on a short 15-minute train to Gomshall where the hike will start. There will be a stop for lunch at popular viewpoint Newlands Corner, please bring a picnic to enjoy (a café is also on site, but this can get busy). The hike will conclude back at Guildford station where you can make your journey home or enjoy the scenic town.

As the Society is leading the hike, we expect all Society members to wear a high vis jacket and to assist with the hike.

This is a fantastic opportunity to meet likeminded hikers & adventurers from across the country and enjoy a scenic social hike whilst discovering the North Downs way and beautiful Surrey Hills countryside.

Please note that the hike will be photographed and videoed.
