A map of walks I have enjoyed without having to use a car to either get to the start or get home from the finish. Over time, I will add details of the public transport that I used, to help those wishing to follow in my footsteps without the use of a car.

Piccadilly Circuit (Geocache Trail) GeocacheTrails
18th Jan 2015
This is a great series but it was hard going at this time of the year so you need good boots and a reasonable level of fitness. There are very helpful directions to each cache but the terrain is undulating and muddy, On the other hand of course you will be rewarded with some great countryside and lovely views.

First "Social Hike" and I forgot to turn off the beacon at the end of the walk! I thought it would go off automatically when I finished the track on Viewranger. EDIT: I've realised that by changing the start and finish times I can limit the beacons to the actual walk.
