This area of the Ramblers’ Association covers the North Wales Counties of Conwy, Denbighshire, Flintshire, Gwynedd, Wrexham and Ynys Môn.
Welcome to the North Wales Area website. This site is still being developed so some of the links may not work yet. We hope to have it fully working soon and to get a Welsh version up and running
The Area is responsible for protecting the footpaths in North Wales. We are actively working to ensure that the area has a good quality network of footpaths. To become involved in this work go to Click Here for contact details of County Footpath Secretaries.
We are proud of our achievements in protecting and improving the rights of way in North Wales. We are committed to ensuring that the paths are open and continually improved.
- We report problems and follow them up
- We discuss possible diversions with landowners, councils and other interested parties
- We object to any proposal that we believe detrimental to the public
- We propose improvements and help find funds to implement them
- Our volunteers do practical work to improve the network
- We have regular meetings with the County Councils to ensure that work is carried out and that footpath budget is protected
In North Wales there are 10 RA Groups. These Groups offer a varied programme of over 600 guided walks per year. These are led by RA volunteer members. We have walks to suit all tastes.
Go to the REPORTING PROBLEMS link to report a path problem and find out more about our footpath work.
The Mountain Tops and the Moors of North Wales are a popular venue for walkers from all over the World. The Association has worked hard to obtain legal access to these special places.
Walking is only a pleasure if the Countryside itself is attractive. The North Wales Area of the Ramblers’ Association takes part in campaigns against developments that could damage the Countryside and the Environment.
