Introduction

Somerset is a wonderful county for walking, as it has varied and beautiful scenery, wonderful coastlines, historic buildings, dramatic hills and easy, flat terrain on the Levels.

We have over 9000 rights of way, totalling 3808 miles (6129 km). The extensive path network is varied ranging from long distance routes like the South West Coast Path and the River Parrett Trail, to a number of promoted circular routes and local country paths.
