Public rights of way


Enjoy walking, cycling, riding...

There are around 300km / 186 miles of public rights of way (PROW) within the Newport City Council area, most of which are footpaths (287km / 179.4 miles).

The council manages and maintains this network of paths, working closely with landowners and users to keep the paths to a usable standard.
