The network of public paths offers an excellent way to explore Ceredigion. The diverse countryside offers a range of opportunities for the walker, from gentle coastal walks to rugged mountain hikes.

There are also many routes for horse riders to follow.

The Coast and Countryside Section has produced a number of 'Walks and Rides' that pass through some of the most attractive parts of the County. The County Council has also produced information on walking around Cardigan and in north Ceredigion. All these routes can be downloaded from the table below.
