REVISED: Some trails re-open. For business.

It's slow. But sure. Countryside off-road trails start to re-open. Bridleways in Cumbria and other heavily affected/infected areas will take longer to re-open but many areas of the UK are now freeing up again.

Ben Nevis opened last week. The Red Bull route at Coed y Brenin opens next weekend and now the Forestry Commission has released info on the routes it is slowly opening up to recreational use again.

Some major railway Paths that are well separated from farmland, eg: Bristol & Bath, Spen Valley path in Yorkshire, remain open. And, as two-thirds of the National Cycle

Network is on quiet or traffic-calmed roads, it provides an ideal place for people to enjoy the countryside without getting too close to areas of risk.

Many of the following forests are now open.
