Our map shows all of the footpaths, bridleways, and byways in England and Wales. The different colours correspond to the different types of path. You can use the map to find a route that is right for you, depending on your chosen activity.

Footpaths are paths that can only be used by pedestrians, whereas bridleways can be used by pedestrians, cyclists, and horse riders. On the other hand, byways are more variable, and in some instances can be used by all types of vehicles, including 4x4s.

Footpaths Our footpath map contains over 100,000 miles of footpaths across England and Wales. No matter if you’re hiking, rambling, or walking, our map can help you find new, exciting routes.

Bridleways With ever-increasing road traffic, finding safe horse riding routes can be challenging. However, our bridleway map lists more paths than even Ordnance Survey, ensuring you have the best hack, ride, or walk possible.

Byways Our map includes byway information (including BOATs). Although less common than footpaths and bridleways, they offer much greater freedom, and in some cases can even be used for “green laning”.

Just some of the kind words we've received from our users

My friend and I have been trying to find new rides near us, and were saying we needed something exactly like this! I've sent her the link and we'll be studying it for new routes.
What a Walk's a great way to find local footpaths and walking routes, especially when exploring new areas. It's easy to use and you can even use it on mobile when you're out and about.
If you're looking for a map that will help you find biking trails, then I can't recommend What a Walk's map enough. Just switch on the bridleway layer, check your tyres, and go!
