Making it Easier to Get to our Walks

All our walks include a scrollable and zoomable map showing the location of the walk, and our printable PDF versions also include a road map of the area with the start of the walk highlighted but we've had requests from users to make it easier for them to get to the start point.

With this in mind we've now added a link to each walk which will take you to Google Maps ready for it to give you directions.

For example let's look at our most popular walk Scafell Pike - The Easy Way. If you look at that you'll see it now says:

      NY186085   (get directions via Google Maps)

NY186085 is the Ordnance Survey grid reference but it you click on the Google Maps link it will take you to Google Maps with the start point of the walk pre-set as the destination for your journey. Like this:

Google Maps directions to Scafell Pike walk

Just enter your start point and Google will then tell you how to get to the start of the walk. It's as easy as that.
