Practical Trailblazer guide to walking the complete Coast-to-Coast Path from St Bees on the Irish Sea for almost 200 miles (320km) across the width of northern England to the North Sea at Robin's Hood Bay. This spectacular two-week walk crosses three National Parks - the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors. The guide covers the complete walking experience including: * 109 detailed walking maps: the largest-scale maps available. At just under 1:20,000 (8cm or 3⅛ inches to 1 mile) these maps are bigger than even the most detailed walking maps currently available in the shops. * Unique mapping features - walking times, directions, tricky junctions, places to stay, places to eat, points of interest are all written onto the maps themselves in the places to which they apply. These are not general-purpose maps but fully-edited maps drawn by walkers for walkers. * Downloadable GPS waypoints. * An all-in-one guide: Trailblazer guides include practical information not usually found in walking guides to the UK: reviews of places to stay, places to eat, attractions along the way and detailed public transport information showing all access points on the path, for weekend and day walkers. Itineraries for all walkers: whether hiking the entire route or sampling highlights on day walks or short breaks. * Detailed public transport information for all access points. * Practical information for all budgets: what to see, where to eat (cafes, pubs and restaurants); where to stay (B&Bs, hotels, bunkhouses, hostels and campsites).
