Our national trails are a collection of superb scenic marked routes around England and Wales. In Scotland the equivalent are called Scotland’s Great Trails. The popularity of walking in Britain during the early twentieth century gave rise to a desire to keep Britain “special” after WW2. Post-war development led to the establishment of National Parks, Areas of Outstanding National Beauty (AONBs) and Long Distance Routes (now called National Trails in England and Wales).
Each trail has marked start and finish points and trail markers at every junction, making navigation simple. This allows you to enjoy the views and keep your map in your pocket. The routes vary in length from the Yorkshire Wolds Way, at a pleasant 79 miles to the whooping 630 mile South West Coast Path. Run, walk, cycle or horse ride at a pace that suits you. Have a go at breaking the record for the South West Coast Path which stands at a remarkable 10 days, 15 hours and 18 minutes set by Damian Hall at a meager 60 mile a day average!!
The infrastructure on each one of these routes allows them to be broken down into sections. Staying at campsites, B&Bs or luxury hotels are all options available to you. Do them non stop with a mate or take the family on a magical mystery tour. None of us live more than 50 miles from a National Trail and around 80,000 people complete a trail each year, why not join them!!
