UK National Trails

Managed footpaths through diverse landscapes.

Across the UK, there are 16 nationally managed trails for walking and some cycling, traversing many unique landscapes, and almost entirely traffic free. They have extensive way-marking, well-maintained paths and currently total 2,500 miles (although they’re being extended all the time). The longest trail is 630 miles (The South West Coast Path) but each can be tackled in sections or as a whole, with varying daily distances according to individual ability.
