With over 2,500 miles of National Trail in England & Wales, it is clear to see that this country offers some spectacular walking opportunities! A National Trail is "a long-distance path which has been created by linking existing local footpaths, bridleways and minor roads and by developing new ones where there were gaps." (see http://www.nationaltrail.co.uk) for the official National Trail website.
As well as seeing some beautiful parts of the country, one of the great advantages of walking a National Trail is that the paths are well way-marked and the wonderful National Trail officers do a grand job of maintaining and improving the walks in co-ordination with the help of local highway authorities, volunteers and landowners.
