Join the Royal British Legion for a sociable hike through beautiful countryside to support the Armed Forces community. 

While you enjoy stunning scenery and countryside, you'll be supported to make sure you have everything you need to enjoy the day. Whether you come in a group or on your own, this is the perfect adventure for anyone looking to explore the great outdoors, learn some history, and challenge themselves this summer.  

The Poppy Treks raise vital funds to ensure that the charity can continue to support serving and ex-serving personnel, and their families, for as long as they need us. That’s why at each trek you’ll have the opportunity to remember a loved one, or those who’ve served.
