Best walking apps 2018
Looking for iOS and Android apps that will get you walking and exploring new places? Try out these five fabulous free apps:
1) This is Gower
Gower is the beautiful peninsula near Swansea in south Wales, and Britain’s first Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. The app features 17 easy-to-follow trails varying in length and theme – from a quick visit to the remains of WW2 defences on Mumbles Hill, to a wild ramble out to Whiteford National Nature Reserve.
2) Discover Derbyshire & Peak District
The Peak District was the UK’s first National Park and its paths are some of the most walked across Britain. The 24 walks within this app aren’t the usual run of the mill honey pot trails. Use this app to discover hidden gems across the region.
3) Heart of Teesdale
What inspired local artists, such as Turner and Cotman, and writers, such as Walter Scott? The 11 walks, complete with maps and directions, packaged with this app will reveal all.
4) Don Valley Way audio trail app
A series of nine audio-narrated walks that provide manageable looped trails off the Don Valley Way.
5) Ingleborough Archaeological app
Featuring free Ordnance Survey mapping, this app is not for the faint hearted. Explore three walking routes that explore the archaeological remains in the uplands of the Ingleborough Massif in the Yorkshire Dales National Park.
All of the apps detailed above were produced by Audio Trails on the Places and Trails app platform.
