QMD Walks are typically mountain days, and mostly and usually take in at least one summit. They often cover difficult ground and you need to be able to navigate and route find. Other walks are typically walks on Lowland and may include some Hill and Moorland.
The GPS Routes uploaded here as GPX files are armchair routes and use straight lines between waymarks, although most of them have been walked. When a GPS Track is available it is uploaded and marked as a Track.
