Footpath lets you map routes in seconds. Whether you prefer the simplicity of running or riding without a phone, forgot to record a GPS track, or want to plan out your next hike or race, Footpath allows you to map out your routes quicker and easier than ever before, all without GPS. It's easy: • Draw your route and watch it snap to roads and trails. • Press and hold on the map to automatically calculate routes between points. • No roads or trails nearby? No problem, just zoom in and draw your routes free-form by tapping the magnet. • View elevation profiles for your routes to gauge difficulty. • Share your routes via email, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Footpath Elite: Go the extra mile • Available via in-app purchase • Automatic syncing. Plan a route on your iPad and keep it on your iPhone for reference when you’re out. • Save unlimited routes. Great for trips, logs, or planning out the week ahead. • Want to change up the routine? Edit any of your saved routes to create new ones. • Premium topo maps and enhanced snapping to trails: USGS Topo Maps (U.S. and Canada) and OpenStreetMap (Mapbox Outdoors, Mapbox Outdoors Satellite), OpenCycleMap, & Thunderforest Landscape. Great for the outdoors and areas not covered by Google Maps. • Export your routes as GPX & KML files to your computer or other apps such as Google Earth, or share your routes to friends with Footpath via Airdrop or email. • More advanced features to come! Tips: • Try drawing your longer routes in multiple segments for better accuracy • If you see a road or trail overlay on the map, it can usually be snapped to • Try zooming in for more accuracy • If you need to route between unconnected roads, connect them by temporarily turning off snapping • Tap "Loop" to quickly calculate the quickest route back to the start • Tap "Out & Back" to automatically trace your route back to the start • Try switching to driving mode to ignore trails & footpaths or to use highways. Perfect for road trips. • Calculate your routes offline by preloading the maps beforehand and drawing without snapping • Import routes from other apps. Send a GPX file to your device and use the common “Open In…” menu to open the route right in Footpath. Footpath is designed for runners, hikers, walkers, and cyclists, but can and has been used for everything from kayaking & swimming to deliveries, travel, & road trips—even to land planning. Hit the road and forget about GPS. For any issues or suggestions, feel free to contact us at

  • Great for Route Planning

    It hasn't been updated in a while, but it's still the best resource I've found for planning a running route before hitting the pavement. I've tried a handful of alternatives, but nothing else seems to come close in terms of functionality. I would love to see development of this app continue. I'd even pay a subscription fee to support it!
  • What's the point?

    By sab7686
    Without it providing turn by turn directions, what's the point of having this app?

    This app is super easy to use without any of the annoying traits I found with similar apps. I can trace a route the involves tracing over sections I already have with no problem. It has snap-to as well as free hand tracing. I love it.

    I have been searching for an app like this for a while. It helps me simulate mileage for runs and biking. This app works great for both.
