The hiking service calculates the distance between two points (with the ability to also add an intermediate point/destination) and provides detailed instructions on how to get to your destination by foot. You can also choose to avoid major highways.

Note: The distance in a straight line will be different from the result you will get in this service. User instructions for the hiking distances service can be found further below in the current page.
