Seasonal Walks

Make the most of the time of year with Goode Walks
Walks for all seasons

Whether it’s summer, autumn, winter or spring, Goode Walks can still help you enjoy the great outdoors.

What’s your favourite season? It’s difficult to say, isn’t it… there’s so much to like about every time of the year. And being out walking at those times too.

As someone much funnier than Goode Walks owner Julian Goode once said, “There’s no such thing as bad weather, just the wrong clothing.”

Billy Connolly was absolutely right; so at Goode Walks we look forward to the changing of the seasons, and the opportunities that brings, albeit wearing the right kit and carrying the right gear in our rucksacks.

We encourage you to embrace those differences too, and come out for a Goode Walk bringing you the best of every season, including:

Four seasons with many reasons for walking

You can’t read Keats’ epic first lines from his Ode To Autumn – “Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness, Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun” – and not want to be out walking in the best that season has to offer. We could quote just as inspirational words from poems about winter, spring and summer – the point being that there is much to love about all of them.

Let us know what you love and when you want to go on a seasonal Goode Walk, and we’ll plan a route that brings you the best countryside experience for that time of year.

… Summer is the chance for evening walks, pub garden visits, and golden sunsets

There is plenty to admire too in the natural world throughout the changing seasons – from the first songbirds of spring, to the magical arrival of new butterflies, golden fields of wheat and barley in summer, and the twit-twoo of tawny owls on an early morning winter walk. Come out on a seasonal Goode Walk and enjoy the great outdoors.

Spring Walk

Winding into the woods around the villages of East Anglia, springtime sees them filling with flowers. Snowdrops at the tail end of winter are followed by wood anemones and then the purple carpets of bluebells. It’s the perfect time for a seasonal walk full of surprises as the trees begin to bud and greenery returns.

Summer Walk

Time your walk just right, and you can transcend that perfect period of fading light, dusk falling, and with a decent view to the west and a clear sky – a summer sunset. Pick the right route, like a walk up on to high ground with a western aspect, or along a East-West river, and your seasonal walk can end with a golden hue.

Autumn Walk

Epping Forest (just as a well-known example on the London/Essex ‘border’), in autumn, with a thick coating of golden-brown leaves under foot… it’s too tempting not to revert to childhood and start kicking them up as you walk along. There are plenty of routes we can take you on through woods and forests that will leave you (pun intended) clamouring for more.

Winter Walk

It doesn’t happen that often in these times of climate change, but when the snow falls you simply have to don your winter coat and thermals and get out there and enjoy it. We can’t plan ahead much for that, but we can get you out early on crisp winter mornings for a Goode Walk that will warm the soul, if not the toes.
