Walk the Distance

Ever wonder if a mobile app can give wings to your travel itch!!

For all adventure travelers, the app Walk the Distance could be a savior during this lockdown only if you are an iPhone user.:-)

Well for the beginners, Appalachian Trail is a hiking trail in the Eastern United States extending between Springer Mountain in Georgia and Mount Katahdin in Maine.

This app primarily lets you experience the AT trail virtually based on the number of steps you complete over the day. 

What Is Walk the Distance?

This iOS app is created in a way that, it will track your phone’s pedometer or any step counter connected with your phone followed by mapping those steps with the 3500km long AT hiking trail or any other place you would like to virtually visit, which you can select from the menu. What is more exciting is the way you will crossing away virtual signposts, involving shelters, scenic points and all the virtual people who are currently on the app giving you the feel of traveling with the group. 


Isn’t it thrilling that you are satiating your hiking pleasures by simply walking inside your home? Essentially, even if you are moving from one room to the other, you are moving ahead on the AT trail at least some distance.

It’s a simple app, which is linked to any of our fitness apps and tracks the number of steps completed in a day. It then maps distance traveled by you, as captured in your fitness app to the miles on AT and put your profile pin there. 

All you have to do is like any other Ios app, install it,  log in, allow permissions from Walk the Distance, and get going to Appalachian Trail.

Isn’t it cool!! iPhone users, what are you waiting for? Download today and start your hiking adventures.

Android folks!! Don’t be disappointed, it should be soon this year on the play store:-)
