Cicerone The End to End Trail
Cicerone - The End to End Trail
Lands End and John O’Groats are the two ends of the island of Great Britain – the two points that are the farthest apart from each other. As the crow flies they are 602 miles apart. Linking the two in a single long distance walk gives a magnificent expedition almost exactly twice that distance.
This guidebook describes a 2000km (1200 mile) end to end route from Lands End to John O’Groats, through the very best of the British countryside. The route follows paths and tracks rather than roads, and takes to the hills and wilder country whenever it can.
Along the way the LEJOG route uses parts of the South West Coast Path, the Offas Dyke Path, the Pennine Way and the West Highland Way, all established long-distance walking trails. The other 60% of the route is fully covered by detailed route descriptions and maps, and many practical variations on the route are outlined as well.
- Route divided into 61 days averaging just less than 32km (20 miles) each
