Ales and Trails UK
Welcome to Ales and Trails UK
This website is an online library of both free, and paid-for, picturesque walking routes and hiking trails from Lincolnshire, Cambridgeshire, Rutland and Leicestershire. Enjoy our collection of pubs with walking routes, and walking routes with pubs!
Every single route includes at least one ‘proper’ country pub for you to enjoy a real ale at, as well as enjoying the glorious British countryside and its wildlife.
We work with pubs across Lincolnshire, Rutland, Cambridgeshire and Leicesershire to jointly promote walking/hiking and real ale...
Our walking routes and ale trails are unique for a number of reasons:
We walk all of the routes ourselves, ensuring the instructions are accurate, up-to-date and easy-to-follow.
We include a free GPS track with each route; you can download this track to your phone and follow it on the Endomondo app, meaning there is no need to carry pages of instructions and you'll never get lost!
Every route includes at least one (often more!!) 'proper' country pub that offers locally-sourced, freshly-produced food as well as serving perfectly-produced local ale, allowing you to enjoy everything the local area has to offer.
We include pictures of the sections of the routes, assisting at difficult-to-navigate points along the route, as well as allowing you to preview the walk so you can decide if it's what you're looking for.
