Welcome to the website of the Manx Footpaths Conservation Group, a friendly walking group based on the Isle of Man who provide a comprehensive programme of walks throughout the year to explore this amazing jewel in the middle of the Irish Sea.
The group pride themselves on providing a walk that will be suitable for you, from gentle strolls followed by social lunches to strenuous day long hill walking to day walks that are taken at a more leisurely pace to short walks on summers evening, which are a perfect way to unwind after your working day.
The wide variety of walks organised by the group provide the opportunity to meet new people and explore our beautiful island, whilst having a positive impact on our physical and mental well-being.
Affiliated to the Ramblers Association, we invite Island residents to join us for a ‘taster walk or two’ before deciding to become a member of the group or if you’re visiting our beautiful Island, why not get in touch and join us, you’re most welcome.
