iWalk Cornwall – an app with more than 250 detailed walks in Cornwall
iWalk Cornwall is a collection of thoughtfully-crafted circular walks and a guided walks mobile app created by two brothers from Trewarmett who are passionate about the mindboggling number of amazing things in Cornwall.
The more than 250 walks have taken over nine years and more than 5,000 miles of walking to produce and there's still a lot more we hope to add.
Over the past eight years, we have developed a guided walk app for Android and Apple, which is a convenient way of tracking where you are on the walk, reducing the chances of getting lost and allowing you to concentrate more fully on your surroundings. It has been described as "like having a walk guide in your pocket".
The GPS-guided walks are each available for £2.99 in the app (of which we actually receive £2.12 from Apple or £1.74 from Google) and the income from this pays a tiny way towards our costs (which include keeping the directions continually-updated for each of the walks). The app includes a free walk (Lanhydrock Gardens) and a simulation mode so you can try out the functionality for yourself before purchasing any walks.
We are not a formal charity, however, iWalk Cornwall is a social enterprise run on charitable principles, working to:
make Cornwall's natural environment and heritage more accessible to both locals and visitors and consequently more valued, appreciated and ultimately protected
help maintain Cornwall's footpath network through collaboration with the Local Authority Countryside Access Team
support other local businesses and organisations in making Cornwall a valued, sustainable, innovative and welcoming region
promote the benefits to physical and mental well-being of walking, Cornwall's natural beauty and its fascinating history
Essentially, the more people who use our walks app, the more time we can afford to spend on creating new walks, further improving the existing ones and working towards these aims.
If you don't have an Android/Apple smartphone, the walk directions and accompanying notes are also available as a PDF from the website (click on the "Buy walk" button at the bottom of the website page).
