Big news! High Sierra Attitude and Guthook Hikes have teamed up with Trailblazer Guides of England to bring our iPhone and Android apps to the United Kingdom. Behold– the Trailblazer Guides: South Downs Way app! Check it out here– iPhone version – Android version.
We’ve been working on converting Trailblazer’s guidebook to South Downs Way since last summer, and we’re all very excited to see the program that we’ve used on the Appalachian Trail and Pacific Crest Trail now used for trails so far from home. And we’re especially happy to be working with Bryn Thomas of Trailblazer Guide Books, who has done the hardest work of all in mapping the trail and writing such a wonderful guide in the first place.
Many people who have used our apps in the past have told us that being able to explore the trail from home makes them more excited to get there in person. Before putting this app together, I hadn’t felt that excitement in quite the same way, since I’d been converting my memories from the trail into an app for other people. Now, though, I feel some of that excitement myself. Having never hiked in England, I find myself browsing around the map and elevation profile of South Downs Way to see what the walks over there look like. I’m beginning to think I may have to make a trip over the pond sooner or later.
Check it out, let us know what you think, and happy hiking!
