iFootpath features in Top Five...Walking Gadgets

In June 2013, Smooth Radio and Real Radio Wales published the latest in its Top Five... series; this time featuring the top five recommendations for walking gadgets. The web site feature was produced to coincide with the longer daylight hours that summer brings.

 

 

‘The long days of summer are perfect for exploring our great British countryside. Whether you're heading up some mountains or along a beautiful stretch of coast, here are five walking gadgets to consider putting in your backpack.’

‘Yet another use for your trusty mobile phone, theiFootpath app lets you create and share walking routes, adding photos, descriptions and points of interest. A great tool if you're exploring a new area or just looking for some different routes to try.’

In addition to the iFootpath app, the list included a GPS device, a multi-tool, a thermos food flask and binoculars. 

Thank you to Real Radio Wales and Smooth Radio for the recommendation.

Length

The length (in miles) of a walk is an approximation of the overall of the walking guide, not a measure of the distance "as the crow flies" between any two points. This is based on the GPX file that was created when the author walked the route and rounded to the nearest mile.length

Grade (Boots)

The grade of a walk is an indicator of how difficult it is to walk. This does not take into account the walk length but does suggest how challenging the walk will be. An easy walk, graded as 1 (and shown as 1 walking boot) indicates a walk that is essentially flat, has no sharp hills to climb, has no stiles or other obstacles, is easy to navigate (probably along a well-worn path) and is suitable for most levels of fitness. Do be aware that the level of stamina required will vary and you should only walk within your limits - the indication of walk length will help with this. A difficult walk, graded as 5 (and represented by 5 boots) indicates a walk that is strenuous and involves steep ascents and/or descents. It may be technically challenging involving difficult terrain or obstacles.

Please note that the grading for walks is subjective and open to interpretation and should only be used as a guide when selecting a walk.
