Welcome to the spring issue!

You need to get up early if you want the hills and valleys to yourself, which is why a well-placed hostel can make all the difference. We’ve rounded up some of the best in this issue, with a host of new Ramblers Routes walks from YHA’s finest around England and Wales. We also take a look at Scotland’s new John Muir Way, hear an impassioned plea from Cameron McNeish for North Harris to be designated a national park, and take an expert look at all your nominees in this year’s Walk Reader Awards. Plus, there’s a holiday to St Lucia up for grabs in our fantastic competitions. Good luck!

With many of Britain's most popular hikes, the best way to experience them is to get there before anyone else is out of bed - which is why a well-placed hostel can make all the difference.

In our headline feature this issue we link up great hostels with Britain's most popular hikes, revealing the best places to stay in Cumbria, Norfolk, Derbyshire, up Snowdon and more.
