WEST SUSSEX COUNTY COUNCIL have lots of useful trails and information on their website  - many of the footpaths are also bridleways.



View, Download or print the Easy Countryside Trails booklet. The walks are for everyone to enjoy, including wheelchair users, families with pushchairs, those wanting a gentler walk and walkers who are less mobile.



Why not try a section - or even all of the South Downs Way – a national trail which stretches the entire length of the National Park, from Winchester to Eastbourne - a total of 99 miles (160km) 
Combine your walking interest with England's 17th Century history along The Monarch's Way . Britain's second longest signed walking trail - a total of 615 miles (990km), this is the historic route using footpaths and bridleways to follow King Charles II's escape route after his defeat at the Battle of Worcester in the English Midlands in 1651. The route passes through Sussex by the Sea and finishes at nearby Shoreham by Sea
There are several cycling and walking apps that help you plan your route and some even monitor your health while you're out and about.

MapMyWalk and The British Heart Foundation are great apps to try. Alternatively use your preferred Search Engine for even more choices.
