Routes and Trails

The Pentland Hills Regional Park offers many routes and trails for people to enjoy. The Discover the Pentland Hills Regional Park leaflet shows the network of 100km waymarked paths that are maintained by the Pentland Hills Regional Park Service. There are non-waymarked paths in the Park but these are not necessarily maintained.

If setting off on a walk in the Park, we recommend you read our Safety page; you should be adequately equipped for the route you intend to do, and be aware of potential weather issues.
