Wikiloc - Walking trails to inspire you!
I have recently discovered a wonderful app for my phone - Wikiloc - thanks to Diego and Patricia (lovely Spanish guests this summer). Wikiloc allows me to record trails using GPS technology and my iPhone and then upload them and share. I can add waypoints and pictures to help users locate where they are and I can provide descriptions of sites or of the walk itself.
I have just uploaded a new walk - Quinta in the mist
Its not perfect by a long way! I am still working out how to use the app but its a start and will give you an idea of how useful it is. I hope to be able to eventually store a good selection of trails in our area (all starting from Casa da Bezerra) so visitors will be able to download walks of different difficulties and lengths with a good map and some local history and images attached.
It will also be great to see our guests own trails uploaded onto the site too, you can record a variety of trails for walking, cycling, car and off road vehicles etc. so Im hopeful that we will get a great selection over the coming years.
Do let me know your own experiences of Wikiloc or other methods of recording trails and keep visiting our site for more links.
