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.
