If you’d like to take part in this week’s National Parks Week there are heaps of events going on throughout the week with information on their website. If it’s inspiring you to visit one of our spectacular National Parks this week (or at a later date), why not try one of our walks or rides? We’ve compiled our top ten National Parks’ routes from our blog below.
And, if you love using our maps for your outdoors activity – why not enter our competition to become a face of Ordnance Survey? You could take your photos when on one of these walks.
1. Try Kinder Low for a circular walk in the Peak District – and you’ll spot one of our trig points on this walk by Peter Naldrett.
2. If you’re visiting the Welsh gem that is the Brecon Beacons, this popular walk around Storey Arms, Pen-y-fan and the ridge will ensure you have some great views.
3. Go munro-bagging around Driesh and Mayar in the Cairngorms if you find yourself in this lovely Scottish National Park.
4. There are many spectacular walks around the Lake District and this six mile loop around Grasmere and Elterwater is gentle enough to suit most, but still affords some amazing views (below).
5. Bag some more munros in the Trossachs around Ben Vorlich and Stuc a Chroin.
6. If you’re not a fan of mountain climbing and are looking for a flatter experience in a National Park – try the New Forest. This circular route around Bishop’s Dyke starts and finishes near the Drift Inn too – handy for rewarding yourself at the end!
7. If you’re a keen horse rider, this ride on the North York Moors covers plenty of ground.
8. Spot a trig point while exploring the Marloes in Pembrokeshire on the west coast of Wales.
9. Staying over the Welsh border, experience part of the Snowdonia National Park with this Glyderau walk.
10. Enjoy the Yorkshire Dales with a walk near the Ribblehead Viaduct.
