National Trails are long distance footpaths and bridleways in England and Wales. They are administered by Natural England and Natural Resources Wales (successor body to the Countryside Council for Wales); a statutory agency of the UK government and a Welsh Government-sponsored body respectively.

National Trails are marked with an acorn symbol along the route.

In Scotland, the equivalent trails are called Long Distance Routes and are administered by Scottish Natural Heritage.
