I have been gradually adding day routes onto Viewranger 👣 for some time. As long as they don’t involve hazards, I have made them public and free for people to download. As I have realised how helpful good quality route downloads can be for walkers, I decided to start creating GPX files for all my day routes and a few trails, to replace the slightly vague route descriptions I had been providing on my blog.
I have also been improving a few of the routes which were created on screen from maps which didn’t reflect what was on the ground, together with all the route information.
There are now over 50 free routes available to download. I am pleased to see that people are interested in my routes, so I have added links to Viewranger from my blog posts and YouTube. I hope you will find the routes helpful if you are considering walks in this part of the world, and that they will work well in conjunction with my blog posts and videos. Please let me know if you experience problems with any of them.
Many of my routes pass through areas with livestock, or include places which are historically or environmentally sensitive. Please follow the appropriate country codes and leave no trace of your visit in order that other visitors can enjoy these walks after you. Thanks and Happy Hiking. Rose 🌹
In May of 2018 I received the great news that I have been chosen for a ViewRanger Top Publisher 2018 Award for outstanding digital content. Thanks to all my followers and the team at ViewRanger for making this happen.
