What can I see on the map?
The Outdoor Wales onLine map is a good place
to start if you want to go walking in Wales.
We have walks to suit everyone no matter whether you are
visiting North Wales, Mid Wales or South Wales and you can be sure
that if you pick one of our walks not only can you find out if it's
suitable for you and your family, but also that it should be
maintained to a high standard. We have many countryside partners
who provide us with their best routes and places to visit to help
you enjoy your visit to the countryside.
If you have any problems when out walking our routes, please let
us know and we will pass your comments on to the right person.
Not everyone wants to follow a promoted route, so if you prefer
to stride out on a Public Right of Way or take advantage of the
freedom of Access land, just ‘zoom’ into our colour map to the
1:25000 map scale and the public rights of way will be clearly
visible. For those of you more interested in walking on Open Access
land, sometimes known as 'the right to roam' and shaded in yellow
on our maps, please remember to read the information we provide
(shaded red, pink or hatched red) about any restriction or
exclusion that might be in place on your visit. Please also
remember to comply with any signage that you come across.
At certain times of the year you need to be more aware that
there is a potential risk of fire in the countryside, to help you
with this, we have a Fire Risk Indicator that shows levels 1 (With
very low risk) to 5 (exceptional risk). A scoring of five would
reflect extremely dry weather conditions or dramatic changes in the
condition of the land.
If you are having difficulty using our maps go to the ‘How to
use the map’ page for fully interactive help.
The OS Explorer mapping is used for our map base. Copies of
these maps showing CROW access land can also be purchased from the
