Are you thinking of walking a National Trail but want to know what it's really like? Here are some of the blogs sent to us by people who have walked or are currently walking (at the time of writing this!) one of the Trails.

Wild Yorkshire Way

Ian from Barnsley is a keen walker. For years he's wanted to plan a walk that linked the official Yorkshire long distance trails into a circular route, linking the Ways with high peaks in some of the wildest parts of Yorkshire. The 526 mile long Wild Yorkshire Way is the result and Ian has just set off (Monday 15 April 2019) to walk the entire route. It includes most of the Yorkshire Wolds Way and Cleveland Way, parts of the Three Peaks, Pennine Way and Trans Pennine Trail, and a small section of the Coast to Coast Walk. 

He's doing this on my own over 6 weeks mainly for fun but also to raise funds for the Woodhead Mountain Rescue Team. Like all rescue teams it is funded almost entirely by voluntary donations. Find out more about Ian and the Wild Yorkshire Way at www.wildyorkshireway.co.uk or donate on his Just Giving page at www.justgiving.com/fundraising/ianwildyorkshireway


Kevin Morriss from the US is walking and drinking (he's a big fan of British beer!) his way through the British countryside and describes it all in his Bucolicaholic blog - he's done the Cleveland Way and Cotswold Way National Trails and during his mammoth LEJOG (Land's End to John O'Groats) walk he covered parts of other Trails too.
