Routes and trails

Hampshire Countryside’s Rights of Way team manage over 2,859 miles of public rights of way.

Rights of way, which include footpaths, bridleways, restricted byways and byways, are open to all traffic, so all members of the public have a right of passage. They’re places where people can access the countryside and explore it safely knowing they’re not trespassing.

Rights of way can be accessed by everyone, but there can be restrictions depending on how you're getting around. Always check whether your route is appropriate for pedestrians, cyclists, dogs and horses before heading off to explore.

No matter whether you’re an avid hiker or a scenic biker, we have a route or trail suggestion for you.
