From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The following long-distance footpaths can be found in the United Kingdom:


England and Wales: National Trails

National Trails are distinguished by being maintained by the National Trails organization [1]. As of April 2008, there are fifteen such trails, one of which is not yet complete.

Scotland: Long Distance Routes

Long Distance Routes are proposed and financially supported by Scottish Natural Heritage, but administered and maintained by the local authority areas through which they pass.

Other UK long-distance paths

Those included here meet the definition of a long-distance path as being around 50 km (30 miles) or more, particularly that they will take more than one day's walking to complete. Some shorter paths linking significant places (e.g. Clarendon Way) or linking between major walks (e.g. Maelor Way) are also included.





Northern Ireland

Isle of Man

European walking routes

Several European walking routes pass through the United Kingdom. They all use sections of UK long-distance paths.
