Self-guided Lichen Walks

Explore Britain’s lichens and associated habitats with these self-guided walks…

Across the UK, there are a series of excellent resources that have been developed to encourage people to explore a wide range of habitats important for their lichen flora. This catalogue of self-guided lichen trails contains inspiring walks stretching from the south-west of England to the northern tip of Scotland. The BLS hopes this serves as a point of inspiration to explore your local area or book your next holiday!



The lichen trails map is far from complete! If you are aware of any other self-guided lichen walks then please let us know and upload them completing this simple form here. An excel document of the lichen trails catalogue itself can be downloaded here and this provides a complete overview of all resources known to the BLS, where individual files can be downloaded below.
