eTRAIL allows you to search a route using three different
methods: "Route map", "Route search"
and "Route list". The "Route map" screen
shows a map of the U.K. with various regions that can be
selected. A short description for each region, along with
the number of trails, is displayed when the cursor is moved
from one region to another. A click on a region will bring
you to the selected route list.
The "Route list" screen shows the comprehensive
route list, which can be sorted in three levels and in both
directions, by difficulty, distance, duration, region and
route id. A click on one list will bring you to the "Route
The "Route summary" screen gives an overall view
of the trail (location, peaks, total ascent, type or terrain,
etc.) with corresponding photographs of the specific trail.
Clicking on "Route" under "More information"
brings you to the "Route detail".
The "Route detail" screen gives a step-by-step description
of the trail, divided in stages. In this screen sample, route
id 121 contains 5 stages. The one displayed is stage 1 of
5. Also on the "Route detail", a "Gradient
profile" diagram is available for reference.
A click on "Route map / More information" opens
a new window with the display of the route map, showing the
overall route and most meaningful landmarks along and around
the trail. The "Route map" can be printed along
with the route stages simply by clicking on the "Print
/ More information" box.
