How can I get it?

The Trailblazer British hiking maps are available as an in-app purchase in our Guthook Guides app, a free download from the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store.

Our iOS and Android apps do differ slightly in their appearance. However, the majority of their features remain the same, and they access the same trail guide data.

This selection is a fully functional demonstration of the Trailblazer British Walking Guides app. Trailblazer apps are navigational companions to Trailblazer’s guide books: the app guides you along the trail while the guidebook provides comprehensive details regarding trip planning, suggested itineraries, public transportation, local history, natural history, safety, where to stay and eat, and much more. This demonstration app includes the western end of the the South Downs Way from Winchester Cathedral to the Beacon Hill Car Park, which is the first 10.9 miles of the South Downs Way. 

Purchase all Trailblazer apps in one package. Includes South Downs Way, Coast to Coast, West Highland Way, Hadrian’s Wall Path, The Cotswold Way, The Ridgeway, and the Tour du Mont Blanc. Purchase now and you will receive any new apps we add in the future at no additional cost.

This app is the companion to Trailblazer Walking Guides’ guide to Wainwright’s Coast to Coast.

The Coast to Coast Path is a nearly 200-mile (320km) route that runs from St Bees on the Irish Sea across the width of Northern England to the North Sea at Robin Hood’s Bay. This spectacular two-week walk crosses three National Parks: the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales, and the North York Moors.

$8.99

This app is the companion to Trailblazer’s Ridgeway guide book.

The Ridgeway is a 87-mile (139km) National Trail that runs from Overton Hill near Avebury in Wiltshire to Ivinghoe Beacon in Buckinghamshire. Part of this route follows Britain’s oldest road, dating back millennia. Taking 5-7 days, this is not a difficult walk and the rewards are many: rolling countryside, Iron Age forts, Neolithic burial mounds, white horses carved into the chalk downs and picturesque villages.

$4.99

This app is the companion to Trailblazer’s South Downs Way guide book.

The South Downs Way is a 100-mile (160km) National Trail that follows the line of chalk hills stretching from Winchester in Hampshire across Sussex to Eastbourne. Walking the length of the Downs is the best way to experience this beautiful landscape with its mixture of rolling hills, steep hanging woodland and windswept fields. You’ll also pass picture-postcard villages with welcoming pubs, thatched cottages and quintessentially English country gardens.

This app is the companion to Trailblazer’s West Highland Way guide book.

The West Highland Way is a 96-mile (154km) trail that passes through some of the most spectacular scenery in all of Britain. From the outskirts of Glasgow it winds along the wooded banks of Loch Lomond, across the wilderness of Rannoch Moor, over the mountains above Glencoe to a dramatic finish below Ben Nevis – Britain’s highest mountain.

$5.99

Hadrian’s Wall Path, 84 miles (135km) from end to end, follows the course of northern Europe’s largest surviving Roman monument, a 2nd-century fortification built in the border country between England and Scotland on the orders of the Emperor Hadrian in AD122.
Hadrian’s Wall Path is the first National Trail to follow the course of a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This week-long walk is regarded as one of the most pleasant of the National Trails.

$4.99

The Cotswold Way is a ~100-mile (161km) National Trail that runs from Chipping Campden to Bath, following the beautiful Cotswold escarpment for much of its course. The trail leads through quintessentially English countryside with little villages of honey-coloured stone, from open farmland to the historic city of Bath.

$5.99

The Tour du Mont Blanc is one of the world’s most famous hiking trails. This loop route passes through seven stunning mountain valleys around the spectacular Mont Blanc. This amazing scenery is classic European Alps: rugged spiky mountains, lush green valleys, strenuous mountain passes, and photo-worthy vistas. Hikers can start the loop from a variety of points in France, Italy, and Switzerland, including in Les Houches in the Chamonix Valley, Les Contamines in the Montjoie Valley, Courmayeur, Champex, and Martigny. The route also passes Chamonix, the famous resort which hosted the first Winter Olympic Games in 1924.
