•Sunday Walks are held every three weeks throughout the year. ‘A’ walks are longer and harder. ’B’ walks are somewhat easier and more relaxed.•Mid-Ulster Walking Club and Cookstown Council,in the past, organised Sperrintrek walks during the year. •The club has a long walking weekend in spring (early May). Previous sorties have been to Scotland, Wales, The Lake District, Co. Kerry and the Isle of Arran. •In autumn (October) ,we have another walking weekend. In the past we have been to Achill, Westport, Donegal ,Wicklow and Galloway. •Shorter mid-week (Thursday) walks are held every two weeks. These are usually easier, although no shorter, with an emphasis on enjoying the landscape.•Occasional trips abroad are organised independently from within the Club. •We organise our own training sessions.2016

Please note club membership Fees are due from 1st of November each year and anyone on a walk who has not paid membership or £4 visitors fee is not covered by insurance. Members Insurance is not valid until fees are paid.
Worth buying:Cahal King's book : Countryside Walks in the Mourne Area. Ten walks fully described with maps and route directions . Cost £10. Obtainable from: King's Inn or Bin 34 in Castlewellan,or Smyth's Musique, Railway Street, Newcastle. Cahal, a former surveyor, Countryside Officer and UFRC Executive member,made the compilation a work of perfection but sadly didn't live to see it published. His widow, Patricia- a former Federation Minutes Secretary has courageously ensured publication, in memory of her husband.Some of our members may remember Cahal leading MUWC around Castlewellan Forest Park years ago.
