Feel free to visit our Stepping Out walks page to view and download various walking routes throughout the North Kesteven District, by clicking the logo below.


The North Kesteven Walking Festival is a celebration of the countless walking opportunities available within the district.  Hundreds of walkers tied their laces and joined in last year for over 200 miles of walking.  From short saunters to long hikes, all ages, abilities and fitness levels enjoyed the social walking experience only a festival can provide.  The festival demonstrates NKDC’s commitment to physical activity and is part of the Countryside NK partnership with Hill Holt Wood (a charity and social enterprise) who maintain over 130 miles of Stepping Out walks in the area and have been running the festival since 2018.

This year you can join us on walks which will be scattered across North Kesteven’s 356 square miles of picturesque villages, medieval churches and thriving landscapes.

The festival thrives on the enthusiasm and knowledge of volunteer walk leaders who make the walking festival possible – so thank you!
