Agreed there is a fair amount of moorland track walking, though this is unavoidable to see the scenery
The tracks were laid by the moorland management company to facilitate shooting parties, like this or not it generates funds to manage the moorlands and keep them open to walkers.
Also in mitigation some of these have been granted right of way by the managing company enabling walkers to venture between the existing public footpaths.
