Do you share our love of walking and the outdoors?

In England alone, more than nine million of us walk recreationally at least once a month, making walking more popular than going to the gym or swimming. And in a poll of adults in 2011 that asked people to name the things that bring them most pleasure, walking came in at number 25 ahead of eating chocolate, eating cake and the smell of freshly baked bread.

So what is it that gives walking its widespread appeal? Well, it may have a lot to do with the variety of rewards that walking brings to people. It really can be all things to all people. The exhilaration of a climb to the top of Box Hill, the intrigue of discovering the old gun powder mills at Chilworth, the views across the rolling downs or simply having the space and time to reflect on life; a sense of quietness and relaxation that is hard to find elsewhere.

Many people love the challenges that come hand in hand with these rewards; finding the starting point and somewhere to park, navigating across remote terrain, overcoming the unexpected obstacles along the way. But for many of the rest of us these are the necessary evils that we must suffer. Well, no more. Imagine being able to enjoy all of the rewards of walking with the challenges taken care of for you. Let me introduce iFootpath...

iFootpath is a website and iPhone App built to inspire people to get out and enjoy beautiful walks across the UK. From town trails to riverside strolls and countryside rambles, we are building a library of walks for people to enjoy be it alone, with their dog or with family and friends. iFootpath walking guides can be downloaded to your iPhone and include live satellite maps showing your own progress around the route(no more getting lost!), full turn-by-turn directions, photographs, historical notes and more.

Join us on our adventure at www.ifootpath.com and let iFootpath take all the hard work out of walking for you.
