North England Trails Resources


The long-distance trails of northern England are among the finest in the UK, crossing some of the country’s most spectacular and wild regions. Routes include the Coast to Coast Walk, The Dales Way, The Cleveland and Yorkshire Wolds Ways and The Teesdale Way.

Many of these long-distance trails are designated as National Trails, long-distance routes through the finest landscapes. Altogether, in England and Wales, there are about 2,500 miles (4,000km) of National Trail, providing walking opportunities in the wild and beautiful parts of Britain. The first such route, the Pennine Way, opened in 1965, and since then another 14 have been designated in England and Wales.

Some trails also have historical significance, including the Hadrian’s Wall Path from Carlisle to Newcastle, and the St Oswald’s Way and St Cuthbert’s Way, in the heart of Northumberland.

So from the Ribble Way in the west to the Reivers Way in the east, there’s sure to be long distance walking trail for you.
