About

Trail Router builds running routes for you. Just give it a target distance and we'll do the rest. Its routing algorithm prefers paths that go through parks, forests or by water, and avoids busy roads wherever possible.

The app was born out of a frustration with existing routing apps; I just wanted a simple way to generate running routes that took in as much scenery as possible, without having to manually work it out myself. And it looks like others feel the same way - Trail Router has a small but regular user base.

Whilst I don't seek to make a living from Trail Router, there are direct costs in running it that would be fantastic to recoup. I currently spend around £150 per month (around $185) in hosting costs for the infrastructure that powers Trail Router.

I intend to continue operating and developing Trail Router, and any support you can provide would help cover the costs. Perhaps even more importantly, it massively helps motivation if I see that people are willing to spend money on this!
