Our Story

The Mud and Routes brand grew from the original Walk Eryri website (established in 2004), and our desire to create a home for all the excellent free walking routes created online by indie websites and other organisations.

Our goal was to provide the largest single database of quality mapped and fully explained FREE walking routes, with a muddy road ahead . . . Mud and Routes was born!

  1. I agree with your policy of no motorised transport but what is your view about electric powered all terrain wheelchairs?
    I have recently bought one of these (Boma7) for my husband who can no longer walk very far. We have made contact with the Disabled Ramblers for group trips but it would be make outdoor accessibility more mainstream.
