Easter is almost here and I’m sure you used the down time to update your walking wardrobe with lots of discount outdoor clothing from us here at Outdoor Look, and if not why not? Anyway you still have time and you can use Easter as a great starting point for your walking year. Here are a few ideas for you.

Why not see what your local Ramblers have to offer, they normally have a great choice of routes to choose from and they are aimed at everyone in the family, with something for all ages and abilities. They even have choice of walks that that child-friendly and pushchair-friendly so no excuses. But if that doesn’t take your fancy, why not create your own walk based on your favourite places and get it online for everyone else to enjoy.

You could even think about joining one of the Ramblers walks that are being organized over the Easter weekend, 18th-21st, This are based all across the UK and include such gems as a day’s walk on Dartmoor (and they are even supplying hot cross buns at the start), a hill walk in the Scottish Borders and a rail ramble to Chirk with the Glamorgan Ramblers.

Why not make the most of the four day break and tackle one of the long distance routes that are now available, there are 15 National Trails in England and Wales and a further 25 in Scotland. Some of them would take a tad longer then the Easter Weekend but you would at least be able to complete some sections.

This is a great time of the year for wildlife, so if you do venture forth, don’t forget to take your camera, or at the very least your smart phone, after all you don’t have to David Bailey with the most expensive kit to create the best memories.

For those of us who enjoy just looking at the flowers then this is a great time of year to go looking for bluebells. And we are very lucky in that roughly half of the world’s bluebells woods are right here in the UK. Check out the Woodland Trust website for more information.

So there you go a variety of events and ideas to get you outside this Easter and for the rest of the year. Just remember to have the right gear and here at Outdoor Look you know you will find the best range of discount outdoor clothing anywhere online, and definitely the friendliest staff, through modesty forbids me from saying who is the friendliest.
