We publicize and develop a favourable attitude towards trails, walking and hiking


As a form of recreation and leisure both within and outside the association, and promote an appreciation of our natural environment.


Our Board of Directors is made up of volunteers from all walks of life. Over the past 40 years we have developed a mix of hiking and walking activities suitable for individuals and families of all age groups and physical capabilities.


We publish a guide to hiking the Thames Valley Trail. The Trail Guidebook provides natural, historical, and cultural background information on the Thames River Valley and the Thames Valley Trail Association, in addition to maps, directions and practical advice for hiking the Thames Valley Trail.
