Here are some steps that will help you get the file on your Garmin. Login to the website and then navogate to your chosen walk. The GPX file is in the top right - purple square and white arrow. It looks like this  - GPS download icon

​​1 - You need to save the iFootpath GPX file. If you right click on the file you may get a ‘Save As’ - if not and it opens in the browser you just need to go to Save File or Save Page as in your browser. (You can also copy and paste it into a text file)

​2 - Find the file on your computer and change the extension to .GPX - sometimes it will save as TXT or HTML It is the same file - you can open it as wordprocesser or text editor.

​3 - The file will probably not work in the Garmin (it may). But you can convert it using http://www.gpsvisualizer.com which is a great resource. Add the file and get it to output it to a GPX (the same) This will change a few parts of the file.

Length

The length (in miles) of a walk is an approximation of the overall of the walking guide, not a measure of the distance "as the crow flies" between any two points. This is based on the GPX file that was created when the author walked the route and rounded to the nearest mile.length

Grade (Boots)

The grade of a walk is an indicator of how difficult it is to walk. This does not take into account the walk length but does suggest how challenging the walk will be. An easy walk, graded as 1 (and shown as 1 walking boot) indicates a walk that is essentially flat, has no sharp hills to climb, has no stiles or other obstacles, is easy to navigate (probably along a well-worn path) and is suitable for most levels of fitness. Do be aware that the level of stamina required will vary and you should only walk within your limits - the indication of walk length will help with this. A difficult walk, graded as 5 (and represented by 5 boots) indicates a walk that is strenuous and involves steep ascents and/or descents. It may be technically challenging involving difficult terrain or obstacles.

Please note that the grading for walks is subjective and open to interpretation and should only be used as a guide when selecting a walk.
