Whilst here in the UK we do have some circular long distance walks, Derbyshire’s 97-mile White Peak Way and the Lake District’s 74-mile Lakeland Round being two impressive examples, most of our well known long distance walking routes are linear. Linear walks (that go from point A to point B) are satisfying because they give a great sense of journey.
But they can also make for tricky vehicle logistics.
If you leave your car at point A, will it be safe? Will the car park fees be expensive? And more importantly, how are you going to get it to point B? To my mind, the answer to all of these questions is obvious.
