Follow in footsteps of Ramblers

AN ONLINE library of walking routes across the South West has been launched by the Ramblers.
Ramblers’ Routes offers a range of walking routes in the region, from Dartmoor to the Jurassic Coast.
It has been launched as part of a new-look Ramblers website with new features for members, volunteers and everyone who walks.
Each route is developed and thoroughly checked by Ramblers volunteers.
There are hundreds of free routes for people to enjoy by registering on the Ramblers website and hundreds more premium routes available for Ramblers members.
The walks cater for all walkers, from short urban walks to introduce new people to walking; walks suitable for families and pushchairs; routes taking in history, coast or woodland, to long-distance, challenging hillside walks for more experienced walkers.
Benedict Southworth, Ramblers chief executive, said: “This online library of high-quality walking routes has long been an ambition of the Ramblers.
“So it is with great pride that we launch Ramblers’ Routes for everyone who loves to walk, or would like to get started. These routes offer the opportunity to walk along inspiring and interesting trails of various lengths across Britain, whenever you please.”
Each route has an online route card, with step by step descriptions, points of interest and advice on how to get to the start point.
It also features a wide choice of mapping layers including Ordnance Survey Landranger and Ordnance Survey Explorer maps with the option to print the route and download GPX data.
