    Hello.

    I want to try mountain hiking, but, I'm not sure where to start. I never tried it, and I know nothing about it, besides, the walking part.

    I wonder if there is, some sort of program/club, where I could join, and they could guide/teach me?

    I live in East Midlands, there isn't any mountains, close to where I live, that I know of.

    Any experienced hikers out here, would be kind to explain the ins and outs.

    Thanks.

    Start walking until you find a group or do some charity events. I can recommend a week camping holiday in snowdonia national parks lots of hikes available!!

    There are loads of companies that do mountain walkin trips but dependent on your age you may need an adult with you. If you go on a train you could be in the lakes within an hour.

    If you're at/going to uni there will be a hiking club there.

    Otherwise best option is to go to some mountains with friends. Start with Snowdon in the summer or something. There are safety issues with British mountains - easy to underestimate the weather and there are deliberately very few signs/marked paths in many places so you need to know how to use a map and compass, but if you stick to very popular routes there will be a path on the ground and you will be a lot safer.
