Long-distance trails (or long-distance tracks, paths or footpaths) are trails or footpaths covering large distances, typically 50 km or more, used for rambling (that is, hiking or backpacking). There are different types of long distance footpaths:
Coast to coast trails
These may be cross-country paths, or may follow roadways, or other ways, and often intersect with many other trails in the process. A good example is the Coast to Coast path in northern England.
