Walking on Jersey
24 Routes and the Jersey Coastal Walk
By Paddy Dillon
Guidebook describing 24 day walks on Jersey in the Channel Isles. Parts of many routes can be combined to make longer routes, including the 48 mile Jersey Coastal Walk and part of the Channel Islands Way. Walks are between 3 and 8 miles, mainly on good paths and tracks, although occasionally rugged cliff paths explore the beautiful coastline.
Seasonsall year round, but particularly good in spring when the wild flowers are at their most colourful; busy during the summer, with long, sunny days; quieter in autumn; sometimes bleak in the winter
Difficultygood paths and tracks are used, along with quiet country roads, avoiding main roads wherever possible; gradients are often gentle, but there are some rugged cliff paths and occasional steep slopes; short walks can be combined to make longer ones
Must Seeexcellent cliff coastline, rocky and sandy beaches, with absorbing historical features - prehistoric sites, castles and churches, as well as massive concrete reminders of the Nazi occupation; plenty of museums and visitor attractions
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.
