A Walking Challenge has been put together using Public Rights of Way across Ceredigion. These self-guided walks will take you across the whole county to explore some of Ceredigion’s most beautiful scenery from wild windswept clifftops to sheltered wooded valleys.

There are over 2500km of Public Rights of Way criss-crossing Ceredigion. This Walking Challenge aims to highlight the availability of routes across the county including lesser-known routes and alternative ways of reaching popular sites, whilst encouraging people to access the countryside for health and wellbeing benefits.

Various walks across the county will be published weekly on the Council’s corporate social media pages:

Facebook, Twitter  and Instagram.
