Nottinghamshire has many miles of countryside footpaths, or rights of way, for you to enjoy.
The County Council is responsible for making sure footpaths are easy to use and in good repair.
There are four different types of public right of way. If you’re not sure how to tell a footpath from a bridleway look out for the coloured arrow signs:
- A yellow arrow marks out a public footpath for people to enjoy on foot
- A blue arrow is for bridleways which you can enjoy on foot, horseback or on a bike
- A purple arrow indicates a restricted byway which is open to enjoy on foot, horseback, on a bike or with a horse and carriage/cart.
- And a red arrow is for byways which are open to all traffic including cars.
