All FoSCL guided walks are free of charge and there is no need to book in advance.  The current programme is shown below. You can browse through all the walks, or search for specific walks matching your criteria. Walks are automatically removed a day after they take place. Some walks involve the use of an additional bus service. In these cases normal fares and concessions will apply.

Some walks use additional bus journeys.  Normal fares and concessions apply on these journeys, though North Yorkshire is withdrawing subsidies from some leisure bus services from April 2015.
