Public Rights of Way

walking banner

As the Highway Authority for Devon, the County Council is responsible for 3,200 miles (4,960km) of public rights of way.

To find out more about your local footpaths, bridleways and byways please use the Interactive Map showing all the public rights of way in Devon (last updated 28th January 2015). You can zoom in and out at various scales by following the instructions displayed underneath the map, and by using the Legend and Layer buttons in the righthand panel you can see all Public Rights of Way, Access Land and the Dartmoor Commons. You can also find out  if there are any stiles, gates or bridges on the paths and  how steep or level a route is.

To find out more about your local cycle routes and trails, please visit the Cycle Devon website.
