Using komoot’s hiking and walking route planner

In komoot’s hike and walk planner, all you have to do is enter your starting and end point and add any waypoints you’d like to visit on the way. Komoot will then map a walking route based on the availability of hiking trails and walking paths between your two points and deliver all need to know trail information so you know what to expect before you go. If you’d like to make it a little more challenging, click on the arrow next to the hiking icon and select mountaineering. The hiking route planner will then update your walking route to be a little more mountainous—and a little more challenging. If you’d like to walk across open country, simply disable ‘Follow ways’ to plan off-grid.

Plan better bike routes online in the cycle route planner

Komoot’s route planner for cycling and mountain biking trips will plan a cycle route based on the type of bike you intend on using. Whether road, touring or mountain, just select the appropriate sport in the bike route planner menu and komoot’s route planner for bikes will take care of the rest. If you’d like to up the gravel along your route, click on the arrow next to the bike touring icon and choose ‘Gravel Riding’. If you’d prefer to increase the difficulty of your mountain biking route, click on the arrow next to the mountain biking icon and select ‘Mountain Biking (Alpine)’. Komoot will update your cycling route accordingly, taking care to ensure that you always stay on the correct surface for your bike, be it smooth asphalt for road bikes, quiet trails for your bike tours or exciting singletracks for your mountain bike.

How to use komoot’s running route planner
