Walking on Jersey

Walking on Jersey

by: Paddy Dillon
This guidebook to Walking on Jersey describes 24 coastal and inland walks, ranging from 2 to 8 miles in length, visiting St Helier, St Aubin, St John, St Ouen and Grouville among other places. Almost all of the walks link directly with one or two others, allowing all kinds of extensions to the routes to suit your timescale and ability. The walks can also be joined together to create the 48-mile Jersey Coastal Walk, and the Channel Island Way.

The walks described use good paths and tracks as well as quiet country roads. Occasional more rugged paths explore the island's excellent cliff coastline. Famous for sunshine, year-round walking, history and a wonderful coastline, Jersey is an intriguing destination for travellers. Outwardly British but with French overtones, the island has a long tourist season. It also has plenty of interesting historical sites and attractions to visit including castles, churches and museums.

Each walk entry begins with a fact-file panel giving start and finish locations, distance, terrain, refreshment options and public transport. This is followed by an overview box describing the main features of the walk. Clear route finding instructions are supported by detailed mapping. An introductory chapter provides details of geology, the island's turbulent history, government, wildlife, protected areas, getting to Jersey and other practical information. The book is illustrated with numerous colour photographs.
