Somerset is a wonderful county full of contrast and there is no better way to absorb its beauty, variety and history than through the Public Rights of Way Network.
The county has over 9000 rights of way totalling 3808 miles (6129 km).

The extensive path network is varied ranging from long distance routes such as the South West Coast Path and the River Parrett Trail, to a number of promoted circular routes and local country paths.

You can view our public right of way network on SCC Explore Somerset mapping site.

You can also use the site to report problems that you might encounter on Public Footpaths and Rights of Way.
