Public rights of way

The public rights of way network, comprising footpaths, bridleways and byways provides the key to exploring much of the countryside of Leeds, whether it be for active pursuits such as walking, cycling or horse-riding, or more leisurely strolls.

Within Leeds there are 819km of rights of way, 628km of footpath, 180km of bridleway, together with a short network of byways and other routes with public access. These ways can lead you through varied and changing landscapes, from urban areas to glorious countryside, and from the car to a country park and beyond.

In the Related Pages and Documents sections of this page, you should be able to find out everything you need to know about public rights of way in Leeds from popular walking routes to plans for the future of rights of way in the city.
