Ten Long Distance Path Tasters
Not sure which long distance footpath to set off on? Why not try one of these for size. All our routes on the site have been tagged with the relevant Long Distance Footpath if they form part of it so finding more should be easy enough.
Pennine Way – The first of two Pennine Way routes. It seems fitting to start at the beginning of the path, and start off from Edale onto the Kinder plateau with an interesting return over the moor that would not be recommended in poor visibility.
Cambrian Way – Carneddau from Ogwen to Aber – We could choose almost any Eryri route as the Cambrian way crosses them all. This one seems fitting as it’s the final section, although the Cambrian Way ends in Conwy.
Cambrian Way – Moelwynion from Maentwrog to Capel. Sort of along the same hills to start with, if not the route. This seeks out solitude in the same way as the full path, and makes a delightful weekend’s walking (just avoid the bogs!)
Anglesey Coastal Path – The section from Malltraeth to Pen-lon along the south western corner of the island is much less rocky than the north and east, but no less spectacular if you’re a fan of wide open beaches. Be prepared to have to empty sand from your boots by the end of this walk.
Pembrokeshire Coastal Path – The first section from Amroth to Tenby is as good a place to start as any, seeing as it’s the first section making it more than suitable if you’re considering walking it in sections.
Antrim Coastal Path – This is the most famous section of the Antrim coast along the Giant’s Causeway
