The public has a right of access to about 500 sq km of Access Land in the National Park. This includes moors, heaths, commons, unimproved hills and dalesides and land above 600m. Here you can wander at will without keeping to public paths.
The freedom to roam on open country extends to activities such as walking, bird watching, climbing and running. On this land you will come across the wilder parts of the National Park; much of the land is unenclosed giving a feeling of escape and exploration and the views are far-reaching. These areas are important for their wildlife and habitats and are inspirational.
