Following the adoption of the plan, Fife Council will have around 2 years to ensure the Core Path Network is signposted, and any essential works carried out on paths.  Please remember that Core Paths can be any type of path, from public roads and street-lit cycleways, to muddy, overgrown tracks.  Information about each path and its condition will eventually be available on this website. 

Fife Council also have a Fife Access Forum to help with core path enquiries and promote via various events through the year. Visit to view their site and check the events page.
