Large numbers of us head to the countryside on weekends to spend time in nature or explore the city on foot.

What do we get out of walking? Is the rapid increase in younger people hiking driven by the ‘gorp core’ or ‘granola girl’ aesthetic, a product of lockdowns, or something else? While walking and access to nature are, in theory, free, are they spaces we all feel able to access?

We explore these topics and more with Ebony Hikers, Girls Who Walk Manchester, and GM Moving, hosted by outdoor industry specialist Neil Summers.
