Hiking Responsibly

At the Big Green Hike we encourage all participants to hike responsibly and follow all relevant legislation while taking part. This includes adhering to

the Countryside and Rights of Way Act 2000 in England and Wales and

the Land Reform (Scotland) Act 2003 in Scotland.

By following these laws, you will help to protect the natural environment and ensure that local communities and landowners are respected. This will also ensure that your hike runs smoothly and that all participants have a safe and enjoyable experience.

Thank you for your cooperation and have a great time hiking for nature.
