Coast to Coast Path - Trailblazer Guidebook

Coast to Coast Path - Trailblazer Guidebook

authors: Henry Stedman and Joel Newton
A complete guide to one of Britain's best loved long-distance paths, describing the classic route from St Bees on the Irish Sea across the width of Northern England to the North Sea at Robin Hood's Bay, a distance of nearly 200 miles. This spectacular two-week walk crosses three National Parks - the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales, and the North Yorkshire Moors.

One of the strengths of Trailblazer guides is the mapping and this guide includes 109 detailed walking maps at the large scale of just under 1:20,000, making route finding accurate and easy. The unique mapping features include walking times, directions, tricky junctions, places to stay, places to eat and points of interest. These are not general-purpose maps but fully edited maps drawn by walkers for walkers.

The maps are supported by detailed route descriptions. Itineraries cover hiking the route in its entirety or sampling the delights on day walks or short breaks and include detailed public transport information for all access points. There is practical information for all budgets, what to see, where to stay, where to eat including pubs, hotels, B&B, camping and hostels plus guides to 33 towns and villages. The comprehensive introductory chapters also include planning the walk, itineraries based upon preferred type of accommodation, the environment and nature. There are also overview maps and a distance chart. The book includes downloadable GPS waypoints and tracklog.
