Finding Walk Suggestions - new way.
Context of comment:Suppose you are using MountainViews and you would like to see what shared tracks there are in a particular area perhaps as hints for your own walk.
First, navigate so that your area of interest is displayed in the Detail map.
Look at the new "Find Suggested Walks" section. Click on the button as shown in the picture.
Then a list of tracks on the detail map now appear.
You can further refine this by clicking on a button for type of walk. The diagram shows "Moderate" suggested. And the list below is for Moderate tracks in the area of Mweelrea. You can click more than one type.
You can then click on any of the links to tracks which therefore form suggestions for your walks. These are arranged in descending order of relevance to the types requested.
After you have clicked one, it should appear in the detail map. (Occasionally they are hard to see if they are near the edge of the map). Any user comments about the track will also appear.
Hopefully you will find a general route of interest to you from which you can construct your own route. MountainViews however is a work in progress - feel free to share further tracks when you find omissions.

GPS Note: It is possible to download the exact track for use by a GPS unit. We only recommend this if you are satisfied about the suitability of the shared track for your proposed expedition.
Message:Let's emphasise that this list shows what members have shared through this website. Hopefully the route is reasonable and any comments with it are accurate, however this is not guaranteed. It is up to you to ensure that your route is appropriate for you and your party to follow bearing in mind all factors such as safety, weather conditions, experience and access permission. If you have reason to believe that any track (or indeed any other information) on MountainViews.ie is unsafe or goes against known landowner wishes or is unfit in any way, let us know.
Additional points:As always with new features, do point out bugs or possible improvements. admin@mountainviews.ie
