The National Forest Walking Festival - 'Footsteps in the Forest' - is at the end of May. It includes nearly 50 walks and has been extended to 12 days for 2010.
More than 30 walks are on offer during Autumn Footprints, the Amber Valley and Erewash Walking Festival.
And the first ever Derby Walking Festival takes place in September offering walkers the chance to discover some of the city's natural, cultural and historical wonders. The walks coincide with Derby Festé, the annual street theatre festival.
Walks for all
This year, many of the walks can be booked online via
A 64-page booklet will also be available from Derbyshire and Peak District Tourist Information Centres and online.
David Thornton, Deputy Chief Executive of Visit Peak District and Derbyshire, stressed that there will be a wide range of walks on offer and that everyone should find something suitable for them - whatever their fitness level or walking experience.
He said: "One of them is called Sally and the Chocolate Factory - that's a walk for families around Castleton where you also go into the factory and see how the chocolate's made.
"We've got walks down leafy canal towpaths - and we've got some of those more extreme walks where the National Park rangers are there as well.
"Many of those walks are free so we really do think this is time for everyone to get out there and have a go."
