With Mapme, you can display walking, hiking, or biking trails on your map.

For example, if you are creating a city walking tour, you will want to show the walking path. If you are creating a nature park map, you will want to show the hiking and biking trails in the park.

You can use the Mapme drawing tool to manually draw the trails on the map. This is a good solution if you are showing one walking trail in a city. However, if you are displaying a large number of detailed trails, using the manual drawing tool can be challenging.

If you have or can obtain a file with the trails data, you can then import those files directly into Mapme either in the GPX or KML format.

Otherwise, there are different solutions to easily generate files for walking, hiking or biking trails.

As an example, here is how you can use the excellent AlTrails application to easily create files for popular trails.
