Ridgeway40 Route Map
Most of the walk follows the National Trail way-marked as the Ridgeway. Please pay attention to the map In areas with many paths such as the few miles after Bury Down (32 miles), way-marks should help keep to the correct route. The walk is different from the National Trail between Barbury Castle and Whitefield Hill (see note below that section on the map)

GPX and KML route files
Most GPS devices designed for outdoor sports and navigation can both create and use GPX files. The great thing about the universal nature of a GPX file is that different brands of device, with different maps loaded can all use the same GPX file. The KML file format is used by Google Maps
