Product Description

Review

"There's something about completing a straight walking route rather than a circular one that gives me more of a sense of achievement. And adventure. If that route is coast to coast then my senses are magnified. At just under 192 miles, this is no day trip but it's all the better for it. With highly detailed pathways, and truthful accounts of overnight stays, this has to be the most definitive guide to this route so far." Escape Magazine (UK) 'The Trailblazer series stands head, shoulders, waist and ankles above the rest. They are particularly strong on mapping...' The Sunday Times (UK)

Format: Paperback
Just completed our Coast to Coast walk using this book between 5th to 18th July 2009. Overall this is an excellent book, but I would make a few observations which would make it much better; i) make it smaller so it fit's into side pocket of hiking shorts/trousers, ii) take out all the flora and fauna info as this is unnecessary ie. stick to the hike - there are better books than this if you want to read about the natural history along the trail, iii) make complicated changes in direction and distances to and from better - a few hikers, us included, went wrong a few times due to unclear instructions (distance and time to changes in direction are so easy and invaluable). Overall - recommended, and smaller/easier to use the rivals we saw some other hikers using.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Nichola on 21 Aug. 2009
Format: Paperback
This is an outstandingly good value and very useful guide. The most helpful features we found were:
1. Notes on the maps to reassure navigational decisions.
2. Town/village plans showing locations of b and bs, shops, pubs, etc. Enormously useful at the end of a (possibly wet and tiring) day's walking.
3. Honest opinions based on walker feedback re where to stay and eat.
It's an excellent companion to OS mapping to guide walkers along the trail.

Format: Paperback
I have just completed the first half of the coast to coast path and used this guide book and the two maps. Those without it went wrong far more than we did and in most cases the information was accurate and helpful. Most of the timings were spot on apart from day 2, if you go the high route add on a few extra hours as it's tough going! Can recommend this as a really good coast to coast companion although take a plastic wallet to take it in as it falls to pieces in the rain!
