Walking is simple, free and one of the easiest ways to get more active, lose weight and become healthier.  There are a number of ways to take those first steps.

Trafford's walking network

Trafford has an extensive network of footpath, bridleways and canal towpaths that provide excellent walking routes away from busy roads and traffic.

Walking campaigns

Trafford supports a number of local and national campaigns aimed at promoting and encouraging walking.

Walking journey planner

Our walking journey planner is a really useful tool that anyone can use to plan a journey. It covers the whole borough.

Walking to school

The school run is responsible for a fifth of the traffic on our roads each morning, so it is important that Trafford Council encourages walking to school to minimise the impact of traffic.
