A series of ‘Walk of the Week’ posters will be published on a regular basis over the summer months.
Published on Ceredigion County Council’s website and social media pages, these will highlight long and short walking routes across the county, so there should be something for everyone to enjoy.
Soaring cliffs, sheltered coves, rolling hills, fertile valleys, wooded cwms and tumbling streams all teaming with wildlife are part of a living, breathing, working landscape. Towns, villages and individual farms add to this mosaic and are just a few of the reasons why Ceredigion is loved by its residents and visitors alike.
Luckily, there are over 2500km of Public Rights of Way criss-crossing the county, allowing access to otherwise hidden spots, for those who want to venture out on foot, horseback or bicycle.
In addition to sturdy waterproof footwear residents are recommended to wear weather appropriate clothing and to bring hand sanitizer, drinking water and a recent OS map of the area. Residents are reminded to keep a social distance from others and to be safe and responsible.
Walkers can take a copy of the promoted routes e-leaflet to help guide them on their way. The Promoted Routes e-leaflets are available from the Public Rights of Way section on the Council’s website. These are linked to a town, village or hamlet and show extra information such as a route profile and distance, types of surfaces, convenient parking spots and the availability of any other amenities. In addition to the e-leaflets, there’s an interactive Public Rights of Way map so users can plan their own adventures.
Cabinet member, Councillor Rhodri Evans with responsibility for the Economy and Regeneration said: “Ceredigion has so many walking routes to offer. Promoting various routes on a fortnightly basis will not only encourage tourists to visit but also highlight scenic areas that even local residents may not have discovered before.”
Users of all Public Rights of Way are reminded that these paths cross private land and that the Countryside Code should be followed at all times.
Head to the Exploring Ceredigion page on the Council’s website and routes can be found under ‘Walk and rides’ on www.ceredigion.gov.uk/resident/coast-countryside/exploring-ceredigion/walks-and-rides/.
