The Rye Bay Countryside area has a wealth of footpaths to explore, with most being fairly easy going. The area is mostly covered by the Ordnance Survey Explorer 125 map. Several circular routes are covered on our Walking the Reserve page.
For the more adventurous, several long-distance footpaths pass close by, including the 1066 Country Walk, the Saxon Shore Way, the High Weald Landscape Trail and the Royal Military Canal Path. Click here for more details.
For the really keen walker, the 1066 Country Walk and the Saxon Shore way form a part of the in-development E9 European Coastal Path, where the British section alone covers almost 1,000 miles around the coast of southern England from Gravesend to Minehead.
