National Trails

National Trails pass through some of the most stunning and diverse landscapes in Britain. There is something to suit everyone, from short walks to a 630-mile adventure.

National Trails are long distance walking, cycling and horse riding routes through the best landscapes in England and Wales. In Scotland, the equivalent trails are called Scotland’s Great Trails.  There are 15 National Trails. Walkers can enjoy them all, cyclists and horse riders can enjoy the Pennine Bridleway and the South Downs Way, as well as sections of the other Trails. In total, England and Wales have around 2,500 miles (4,000 Km) of National Trail.

We are very fortunate to have two of the National Trails running through Northumberland National Park; the Pennine Way and the Hadrian’s Wall Path. Find out more about these exception trails below.
