- More options see the text below the table.
The route of the E8 is displayed in red. The shortest direct connections between the E8 and the start and end points are shown in blue. These direct connections may not be possible!

On Openstreetmap you can adjust any errors in the route yourself. Waymarkedtrails is based on Openstreetmap.
Heights have been added to Waymarkedtrails tracks using the website gpsvisualizer.com.
The exact locations of Cities, Towns, Villages and Hamlets are based on the locations that Openstreetmap gives. Usually this is somewhere in the center.
The distances in the table and on the map are an approximation!! This is because the actual routes from the E8 to the POI are not included.
The distance from a Point Of Interest (POI) to the E8 is the shortest distance to the E8 in a direct line.
The distances between two POIs (point 1 and point 2) are calculated as follows
Total distance = Distance point 1 to nearest point on the E8 + Distance point 2 to nearest point on the E8 + Distance between the two nearest points on the E8
If points 1 and 2 are close to the E8, the calculated distance is usually a good approximation.
If one of the two points is situated further from E8, the actual distance may differ (significantly) from the calculated distance.
It is recommended to check the route from a starting point to the E8 and from the E8 to the end of a stage! This may e.g. by zooming in on the map and checking for a path or road from the starting point to the E8 and from the E8 to the end point.
The track of the E8 may include errors. Also, the recorded POIs may include errors! It is recommended to check the track and points before walking the path!
