The mega trail is scheduled to operate in 2021 and already has some areas open for visitation, passing through cities such as Liverpool, Southampton and Brighton.
THE England will win a new tourist attraction for lovers of trails and nature. The country announced that it will inaugurate the longest coastal trail in the world, named as National Trail.
The natural path is expected to open in 2021, when all sections of the England Coast Path are ready and connected, forming a 4498 km path.
Trail maintenance has been going on for a number of years, and many parts of the National Trail are now ready to receive tourists. The mega trail is divided into four different parts: Northwest, Northeast, Southeast and Southwest
Despite being known as the longest trail along the coast, the National Trail also has sections that pass close to the borders with Scotland and Wales, in small detours that go towards the interior of the country.
The North West part will cross some cities such as Liverpool and Carslile, passing through the Lake District National Park. The northeast stretch extends through places like Sunderland and Scarborough, which has rocky cliffs, beaches, natural pools and flowering fields.
Further south, in the section called Southeast, hikers will cross the vicinity of Norwich to the vicinity of Portsmouth and Brighton, one of the most beautiful stretches of the coast of England and where it is possible to see the English Channel. The region reserves Roman ruins, large forest reserves and cliffs.
The Southwest part of the mega trail crosses important points of the country such as Southampton, the Titanic's departure point, crossing to the extreme south, in Cornwall.
