Wainwright’s Coast to Coast Walk – GPS related

Ok, I did offer to do this – so here goes.

I am listing a few files that I have found +/- altered +/- dreamt up from the web that MAY be of use to Coast to coast (c2c) walkers.

In particular I have a list of 514 GPSr waypoints (!) that I have recently modified from the “original” posting. These are in GPX format and SHOULD work with almost any program that accepts GPX (which I think is almost all of ’em!) Credit for these points must go to several people :-

John Ledger – original author of the points
Guy Wilson – who apparently made them available on the web
“Canmal” and “Rick F” – who posted a compiled GPX file for general use which was subsequently hosted by Lone Walker at his website – Make sure you have a look at all his C2C resources!

I have been collecting C2C info in anticipation of my walk, and will shortly add some other data to this site – watch out for a complete GPS “Track” split into usable sections to keep you company on the walk!

I also hope to “record” the entire walk on my own unit and will subsequently post the Track logs for those interested.

  1. Hey, I wanted to thank you for making these waypoints available. My mom used them for walking the trail and found them invaluable.

  2. I am doing the C2C walk next year and have borrowed a Garmin 48 GPS unit. As I am a complete novice with GPS how do get the gpx file onto the Garmin.

  3. Hi Greg, I’m in the same boat as you. I’ll be getting my hands on a Garmin 60cs before we come over from Canada to do the walk next year. Any helpful tips would be greatly appriciated from any and all experienced walkers.

What are your thoughts on this?
