Best hiking and walking apps
Loved by hikers and walkers around the globe, View Ranger offers a huge directory of hikes and walks, many of which have been uploaded by keen hikers. Also serves as something of a social network.
The newly revamped EveryTrail has routes from more than 80 countries, as well as tips on other outdoor activities close to hiking areas.
This app lets you “walk” a route from the comfort of your armchair. You can plan your route and see what’s on offer once you arrive. Perfect for the urban hiker.
AllTrails currently features more than 50,000 trails, and the number is growing. There are reviews and pictures of destinations, and you can upload your own.
