Welcome to the website of the Manx Footpaths Conservation Group, a friendly walking group based on the Isle of Man who provide a comprehensive programme of walks throughout the year to explore this amazing jewel in the middle of the Irish Sea.
The group pride themselves on providing a walk that will be suitable for you, from gentle strolls followed by social lunches to strenuous day long hill walking to day walks that are taken at a more leisurely pace to short walks on summers evening, which are a perfect way to unwind after your working day.
The wide variety of walks organised by the group provide the opportunity to meet new people and explore our beautiful island, whilst having a positive impact on our physical and mental well-being. Children are more than welcome to join us provided they are accompanied by an adult.
Affiliated to the Ramblers Association, we invite Island residents to join us for a ‘taster walk or two’ before deciding to become a member of the group or if you’re visiting our beautiful Island, why not get in touch and join us, you’re most welcome.

w3w: petted.handy.outfit It's nearly that time of year again when we get together after our walk for our annual 'Christmassy' afternoon tea. We will start our 'slightly shorter' walk on Laxey Promenade at 10.30am as usual. Afterwards we will join Jane at the Yacht Club where she will have prepared a fantastic afternoon tea for us (and we all know how good Jane's cakes are!!!). If you prefer not to walk please just come for the tea party, we'd love to see you. Please contact Alistair firstname.lastname@example.org directly to book your place.Find out more »
