Exmoor - a walker's paradise

Whether you are an experienced walker or someone who prefers a short stroll, Exmoor National Park is the ideal place to explore the outdoors on foot. With over 1000km of footpaths and bridleways, through woodlands, by tumbling rivers and on open heather covered moorland, the variety is vast.

There are a number of guided walks available in the National Park, where experts can help you explore the fascinating history and wildlife of Exmoor. There are walks to suit everyone including some that wheelchair users and families with small children may well find suitable. There are also several long distance trails through Exmoor. Guided walks and other events are all listed on the events page.

Why not visit one of our National Park Centres where you can find a range if maps, walking books and route guides, as well as pick up your free copy of the Exmoor Visitor. 

Our Interactive Visitor Map has a range of walks which you can download, or you can purchase the essential maps, walking guides and books that you need from our online shop.

For more information to help you feel confident exploring the countryside, including information about map reading and navigation, paths and access land, and your rights and responsibilities, visit the 'confidence in the countryside' pages.

As in many places in the UK and elsewhere, there is a risk of getting bitten by ticks when walking on Exmoor - find out how to minimise the risks with our Tick Information Leaflet.
