New for 2018! Plymouth & Devon Walking Book 4

January 3, 2018 | By | Reply More

Plym Ramblers present a NEW walking book – “ON THE BEATEN TRACK 4”

An ideal gift for walkers and an excellent way of keeping fit and agile. The entire proceeds from this book will be donated to local charities.

The walks chosen for this book are a great selection of circular walks, all within 25 miles of Plymouth. They cover moorland, countryside and coastal areas and range between 3.4 and 8.6 miles. The description for each walk is accompanied by a sketch map with way points. At the start of each walk, we have given an idea of the conditions you are likely to encounter (e.g. muddy, steep etc), the distance involved, the time you are likely to take to complete the walk without stops.

The grade of the walk, which will be easy or medium. Easy describes a walk that is usually shorter and fairly level walking. Medium is usually a longer walk with variable gradients. However, none of the walks will present difficulty to reasonably fit walkers. In addition to this information are the location of toilets and refreshment places (if any) instructions on how to reach the start and the starting point grid reference. Please note that you should not rely on to lets or refreshment provision, always bring your own food and drink and be prepared.
