Promoted walking routes

Many of the rights of way in South Gloucestershire are promoted through leaflets and websites. These routes vary from short circular walks designed to be easily accessible, to long-distance walking routes such as the Cotswold Way and Severn Way.

We also have an extensive network of bridleways and have developed a range of circular rides.

Heritage trails

We publish, in partnership with the South Gloucestershire Heritage Forum, a series of leaflets detailing heritage trails around the area.

The leaflets show routes you can take by car, bus or on foot that include sites of particular interest.

If you would like to be sent a copy of the leaflet please contact us.


We are pleased to inform you that our South Gloucestershire Walking for Health programme is now officially accredited.  To be an accredited scheme we needed to make some changes and revamp our programme.  We now make sure that all of our Walking for Health walks are within the guidelines set out by the national team.

This includes making sure the walks are between 1/2 mile and 3 miles (all under roughly 60 minutes), easily accessible and over easy terrain.

If you have any questions regarding accreditation please feel free to get in touch.
