Step Forth

Step Forth is a local walking for health initiative, developed in partnership with Paths for All.

The aim of Step Forth is to get more people active within their own communities especially those who take little physical activity or live in areas of poor health. It is aimed at all ages and abilities, and all walks are free of charge.

Step Forth provides local walks in many areas across the Falkirk Council area, taken by trained volunteer walk leaders.

We also deliver Nordic Walking taster sessions in partnership with The Helix. Be one of the first in the area to try this fantastic whole body exercise programme while taking in the beautiful new Helix pathways. Walks take place from Falkirk Stadium and Grangemouth Stadium. Contact the Helix team for more information, or to book.

Are you a new mum? Why not come along to one of our popular Buggy Walking groups around the Falkirk Council area. Walks are led by trained volunteers and give you an opportunity to chat to other new mums.

Health Walks

  • Grangemouth: Every Monday at 10:00am from the Grangemouth Community Education building, Grangemouth. The Wednesday walk incorporates both a Health Walk and Otago session; if you have difficulty walking, come along at 10:30am for the class only.
