Hi to everyone.
I'm hoping to undertake the WHW next year as one of my LDW trips. How difficult is the navigation along the route, is the way marking clear and precise and easy to follow. I've been told that it can almost be undertaken without maps because the way marking is so good. However, I find that hard to believe, all information gratefully received!!! Wink

Hi Jack,

The way-marking on the WHW is very good and it is probably possible to walk the route without a map. I would, however, recommend taking the Rucksack Reader for the info it contains and also the Footprint map, as it breaks the whole thing down in to 1 mile at a time and a day-by-day basis. Only you can decide.
