Country Walking[2] is a British monthly magazine about walking and the outdoors. It was launched in 1986 and is published by Bauer Consumer Media.[3] The current editor is Guy Procter.

With a focus on walking in Britain, the magazine publishes news, features and outdoor gear reviews. Every issue includes 27 route cards (with Ordnance Survey maps)[4][5] describing walks around the UK. Country Walking shares the website[6] with its sister title Trail.

Guest contributors have included Miranda Krestovnikoff and Robert Macfarlane. The BBC Radio 6 Music DJ Stuart Maconie is a regular columnist.


County Walking first appeared as a supplement in Bird Watching and was shortly afterwards launched as a standalone title by East Midland Allied Press (EMAP) in 1986. The magazine's 2004 survey of guidebook writers and trekking experts put Alfred Wainwright's Coast to Coast Walk ahead of the Inca Trail and Everest Base Camp Trek as one of the best walks in the world, coming second to the Milford Track in New Zealand.[7][8]
