Local Walking Routes & Hiking Trails
Shropshire has over 3,500 miles of rights of way.
A quarter of the county is designated as the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, so our long distance routes run through some of the most beautiful and varied landscapes you will find anywhere in Britain. A land with wild borderland hills traversed by Offa’s Dyke to the rolling fields and deep gorges through which the Severn Way passes on its way to Bristol.
From the Offa’s Dyke Path National Trail and The Shropshire Way to short circular walks in picturesque villages and parishes, in Shropshire there is something for everyone.
With over 5,500 km’s of Public Rights of Way, two Country Parks, several countryside heritage sites, over 7,000 ha of open access land and a quarter of the county designated as the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, you will be spoilt for choice with stunning walks and views round every corner.

Plan Your Perfect Day Or Longer Adventure
We asked the real experts The local walkers.
The individuals and groups, historians, lovers of flora and fauna, the volunteers who look after the stiles, bridges and paths: all have contributed.
The result is the Shropshire Way. Not only the finest route around the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, but also the best possible set of day walks.
