Description Map your own routes and either share them
or store them, check out other OMers' routes complete with
GPS data and a real Ordnance Survey map.
We're still going to be running a new walking or scrambling route
every week on OM, but from now on, the route will go straight into
our new Routes
That means that not only can you get the usual detailed route
description and photos, but you can also see the route on a real
Ordnance Survey map generated with our partners at Anquet, plus you
can download a GPS file in either Anquet or universal GPX format.

Loughrigg Fell may not be one of the Lake District's big
draws, but easy access from thronging Ambleside and a superb
position perched above the water with great views of the
fells, more than makes up for the lack of stature.

Wow......I recently did my 50th time on Loughrigg. At 5010m no wonder my legs were tired.
