Description

Walk! the Isle of Wight. The Isle of Wight is different, almost a step back in time, with a slower pace and more relaxed way of life. A fantastic variety of beautiful and varied scenery, changing with the seasons, is crammed into the Island, which measures only 23 miles by 13 miles. The Isle of Wight offers formidable hills, towering cliffs, river valleys, marshes, rich farmland, a variety of woodlands, prehistoric burial mounds, ancient churches, attractive villages, and a wealth of inns and pubs. Criss-crossed by over 500 miles of footpaths and bridleways, as well as additional paths across access land, it also boasts nature reserves, forests, and the most spectacular beaches in the south of England. Small wonder then, that the Island is one of the best walking venues in England, and no accident that it is home to the UK's biggest walking festival, perfect, as it is, for a day trip walking expedition from the mainland. Martin Simons has produced the classic Isle of Wight walking guide, with most walking routes linking to frequent Southern Vectis bus services allowing you to leave the car at home if you want to. 40 fully detailed walking routes, plus short walk and stroll alternatives. Each walking route itinerary includes:- - walking route summary. - ratings for Effort, Time, Distance, Ascents/Descents, Refreshments and Vertigo risk. - fully detailed walk description, including frequent timings to aid navigation and check your progress. - GPS Waypoints at every key point on every route for pin-point navigational accuracy. - full colour 1:30,000 scale OS map of the route. - short walk and stroll alternatives. There are a wide range of walking routes across the picturesque Isle of Wight. With Martin's excellent walk descriptions you'll know which routes are for you - and all of them are a true adventure. Full GPS Track and Waypoint files for Walk! the Isle of Wight are included on the Personal Navigator Files CD published by Discovery Walking Guides.
