Description

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 othes, 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.
