This is a list of walks up to 4 miles with a maximum steepness grade of moderate.

Note that the steepness grade is usually far more important than length for a walk feeling more demanding. Because we associate miles with cars, an extra half a mile sounds substantial but in reality that's only a few hundred metres - on the flat that's a 10-15 minute stroll.

For more short walk options, see the list of walks that can be shortcut.
