Trace over the incorrect segment to edit, or use the eraser tool. • Turn off snap to roads (magnet icon) and zoom in to manually trace the map. (Try switching to a satellite layer).

  • Very useful

    By Haan So Low
    I use this to plan my runs, and I now have a deck of known-distance runs saved in the app. I like how it snaps to roads and walking paths, and especially how intelligently it responds to edits to the run when cutting out sections of the run or when expanding the run to other streets. Keep up the great work!
  • Great App; Great Update

    By Street and Trail Runner
    The application is quick and easy to create great running routes with distance and elevation profiles. The recent 2018 update makes it even better.
  • Works great!

    By hm03surf
    Seems to be just like the videos suggest. Easy to use and valuable.
  • Simple, easy, reliable, intuitive

  • excellent

    By guitardist
    For years I’ve used Footpath to plan my hikes and paddles, I can see everything I need to know about a trail in great detail before I set out. The newest update is wonderful, graphically the maps are really nice, there is an option to make lists to sort routes, and snapping to trail/street is working very well when drawing a route. I upgraded to Footpath Elite to access the topo and nautical maps. The developer is friendly, active, and helpful. I love outdoor activities and I use this app daily, it’s indispensable.
  • Won’t use again

    By LexisAlex
    This app is very difficult to use, it’s snap to road feature does not work well at all and it’s tracking is super inaccurate.

    By boonefork
    I’ve been hoping for this app for years. It is truly incredible; allows me to chart my hiking routes and shows trails that I wasn’t aware of. Thank you!
  • The recent update is not good

    By Bassfever220
    This was a 5 star before the recent update. Ever since the update it does not work well, the maps are not near as good, you have to manually change it from satellite to map, before it was automatic. The routes many time hang up and will not show, just not good. Frustrating . I am now searching for something else to use as the app is not great any more. Really too bad, it was great
  • Won’t draw where you’ve walked

    By Johnnierr
    Thought it would have drawn a trail to show where I have already walked. I would have paid extra for that because it’s what I need.
  • Easy Run Routes

    By Dark Cricket
    I love this APP. Super easy route recon at your fingertips. Great for planning the perfect run, ride, or just adventure.
