How to create and record your own route on Wikiloc
Record a new trail from scratch:
- Go to the "Record Trail" tab
- Click on "Start recording"
- Start recording your route:
- You can create Waypoints as you move forward
- To "Pause the route", press on the red square
- Useful if you want to cut a part of a route, for example when you need to deviate for just a moment but do not want it to appear on the route.

- "Finish" the route:
- Fill the route information sheet (Name, Description, Activity, Roadmaps, Level of Difficulty and Photos), choose if you want to upload it as "public" or as "private", or if you want to save the trail as a "draft", and "save" the trail.

While you are following a route, you can also record your own version after finishing it. Here we explain how.
