Walking, Cycling and Horse Riding - Maps and Open Access Land

Cycling, riding and walking routes and maps in West Berkshire

Walking and cycling have an enormous benefit on our health, and can also be great fun - we provide information, maps and leaflets on recommended routes for walking, riding and cycling in the West Berkshire countryside on this page.

We also provide information on Walking and Cycling Maps and Routes as transport for commuting, and in more urban areas, and on sustainable Walking and Cycling to School, including incentives for walking and cycling.

Open Access land

The public can legally walk freely on mapped areas of mountain, moor, heath, downland and registered common land without having to stick to defined paths.

 In West Berkshire there are areas of open access on commons, heath and downland - the maps for these locations, along with information on rights, responsibilities and access restrictions, are available on the Natural England website.
