The Carmarthen and District Ramblers' Group was formed in 1974. We are a friendly group and are always happy to welcome new members.
As well as local walks in our lovely Carmarthenshire countryside, we travel into Pembrokeshire, Ceredigion, the Gower Peninsula, the Black Mountain, and the Brecon Beacons to enjoy an amazing variety of scenery. On most programmes we also offer two or three day walking adventures on long distance paths in Wales. Some members have completed the Dyfi Way, Glyndwr's Way, the Ardudwy Way, the Cotswold Way, and Offa's Dyke National Trail.
We offer one or two walks every weekend. On the first and third Saturday of the month we usually have a shorter walk, and on most Sundays we enjoy longer walks. View our Walks Programme for details and join us for a walk! Walks are open to anyone, including visitors on holiday, and newcomers are especially welcome. After walking with us a few times you should consider joining the Ramblers to enjoy a range of membership benefits.
Our group membership as of 1 October 2016 is 91 members.

|Walking in The Mendips in May|
|Over four days, from Tuesday 16 May to Friday 19th May 2017, Carolyn & Dennis Hills will lead a selection of walks in the Mendips Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. We will walk in the area surrounding the famous Cheddar Gorge, enjoying lovely views, seeing ancient remains, and walking through peaceful open countryside. We will use well-marked footpaths, sometimes on named walking routes such as the Monarch's Way, and the West Mendips Way. Three of our walks start in the village of Cheddar, but on Thursday the group will travel to Wells (England's smallest city) by coach and follow a selection of interesting paths back to Cheddar. Each day there will be a choice of shorter or longer walks, and for those who wish, the group will enjoy evening meals together in Cheddar.|
