The Devon County Council have made available a set of maps covering the whole of Devon. The official purpose of the maps is to enable members of the public to identify rights of way, but these maps are so detailed, many other uses spring to mind.

The site is a little slow to load, but can be found here:- http://gis.devon.gov.uk/basedata/viewer.asp?DCCService=footpath

You can zoom in and out at various scales by following the instructions displayed underneath the map and by using the Legend and Layer buttons you can see all Public Rights of Way - Cycleways, - Access Land and the Dartmoor Commons - and DEFRA Stewardship sites with public access.

You can also find out if there are any stiles, gates or bridges on the paths and how steep or level a route is.

Happy hiking!
Geoff.
