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 cycling

    By Bob 12:20-35
    I use it to plan cycling routes. It's very simple, clear and direct, and lets me explore many alternative routes.
  • Good for planning, tracking routes

    By Engu011
    Either before or after your walk/ride, this is a good app for figuring distance travelled.
  • One of the most useful apps I have

    I'm in the Marine Corps and don't always have a gps available while I run so I love that this app is so accurate and user friendly
  • Training routes

    Great way to plan your routes. Especially helpful during marathon training for your long runs!!
  • I love this app!

    By Lindurand
    I rarely remember to start Map My Ride before I head out. This app lets me document the ride after I return and gives me the miles ridden and elevation gain.
  • Super useful

    By Notburt
    Mapping tools work great. Just discovered the sharing tools. You can send a map to a trailhead. I've been using this app for years with only good results.
  • Great!

    Works awesome to plot courses for workouts in areas that are unfamiliar.
  • Keeps losing snap to road function

    By Pezcador
    It's a real pain when I want to quickly check a distance and the snap function stops working. So far the only fix is to restart my phone. Well there goes the quick usefulness of this app. Otherwise, I'm really pleased. Just fix the snap to road...
  • Phenomenal App

    So intuitive, incredibly accurate. Tons of capability in this app for any outdoor enthusiast.
