The Isle of Man is the approximate geographical centre of the British Islands, and must be able to stake a claim to being the Geocaching and Walking centre as well.
Consider this : 800 (and counting) caches hidden within 227 square miles of walking paradise. From devilishly difficult D5/T5 caches, to straightforward D1/T1 cache and dashes - there really is something for everyone.
This trail simply adds to that, by taking a little bit of everything from the other cache series and from the multiple long and short, gentle and strenuous walks, (apart from 2 caches on the Calf of Man accessible by boat only, and 1 on the Tower of Refuge accessible only when the tide is out!) so you really are spoilt for choice.
Just before you rush out of the door, there is some admin type stuff to tell you about first.
The trail follows public footpaths, greenways and some road walking. There is absolutely no need to trespass off the route to find the caches which are easy finds.
The timing attribute assumes attempting the trail in one go. Obviously if you pick off the caches one at a time, then the attribute becomes less appropriate.
Between caches 17 and 32, you are going into the 'wilderness' and will not be that close to civilisation. Unless walking in groups, let someone know where you are going. Mobile phone signals are generally ok across the route.
Some of the public footpaths cross fields in which there may be livestock. If you take a dog - ensure it is kept on a lead.
Stay with us, not much more.
You may walk on, or cross some roads. Please be especially careful here, more so if you have children with you.
At times during May/June and August/September 10 and 11 (Windy Corner) and 35 and 36 (Cronk Y Voddy) are part of the TT and Manx Grand Prix course. It is your responsibility to check times when the course is open/closed.
DO NOT ATTEMPT TO CROSS IF THE ROAD IS CLOSED.
