At Exmoor National Park Authority we use maps for a whole wide variety of tasks, these range from:
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 oak woodlands, alongside tumbling rivers and across open heather-covered moorland, the variety is endless. Some of the country's finest long distance routes pass through our National Park, or you can plan your own adventure to explore this unique landscape.
If you want to explore yourself it will be useful to purchase one at your closest National Park Centre at either Dulverton, Dunster or Lynmouth and or get one online OS Map OL9. Also an opportunity to download maps to your device from Ordnance Survey.

Click on individual events for more information. To help you decide whether a walk is suitable for your level of fitness and mobility we grade them by a simple grading system as below. We hope that the information is correct but each organisation is responsible for their own listings
Easy Going Stroll - guided walks at a very gentle pace for up to about 2 hours. More accessible locations that are likely to be suitable for many less mobile people, younger children, pushchairs and wheelchair users.
Stroll - usually up to two hours at an easy pace. Likely to be suitable for many children and slower walkers.
Walk - for more experienced or fitter walkers. Open moor or steep or rough ground may be covered in walks that vary in length and type of terrain.
