TRAIL Magazine – Kate’s Route Cards

Posted on March 5th 2018 by Kate Worthington

Have you heard? TRAIL magazine is regarded as the UK’s best-selling publication about hill and mountain walking. Each month, the edition will cover seasonal articles, photo stories, advice on gear and walking skills, Route Cards, competitions with lots of fabulous imagery to inspire you.

A magazine subscription to TRAIL will give you a monthly copy to read, re-read, digest and refer to again and again. A TRAIL library in your own home! You can also subscribe to an electronic version, to download on to Apple or Android devices.

Each month, TRAIL offers readers a selection of Route Cards – which are printed on slightly thicker paper to allow you to cut them out and use them as a planning reference for your walks. It’s always advised to use these Route Cards in conjunction with an appropriate map, compass and your own navigational and personal walking skills.

As RAW Adventures is based so close to the magnificent peaks of Northern Snowdonia, it makes for very easy coverage of exceptional routes and Kate has been enjoying writing about some of her favourite days out. Over the last 18 months, Kate has been low-key recording some of her own adventures, and some with husband, Ross, and more recently, Nonny, the dog.

You will find many of Trail’s images feature the work of Snowdonia based photographer Nick Livesey, too. Beautiful captures of these enigmatic peaks…
