Maps

Ordnance Survey maps for the area which are of most use to walkers are: Landranger 135, Aberystwyth and Machynlleth, scale 1:50,000; Explorer 213, Aberystwyth and Cwm Rheidol, scale 1:25,000.  The 1:25,000 OS map shows Rights of Way and also land designated as Open Access land under the provisions of the Countryside and Rights of Way Act.

Ceredigion County Council has produced an online map showing all Rights of Way in the county.  The map makes it possible to identify those paths which are most likely to be in good condition.  Zoom to the largest scale at which Rights of Way are shown.  Then click on the path you are interested in to get its details – path number etc and maintenance arrangements: paths shown as category 1 or 2 are normally usable; others may be OK but don’t bank on it.

Natural Resources Wales is a new body incorporating the former Countryside Council for Wales, the Forestry Commission Wales and Environment Agency Wales. It has information on recreational access including walking on its website.

There are  also on line maps of the All Wales Coast Path
