Guide to Creating Walking Route Maps for Safe Routes to School

Walking one mile to and from school each day is two-thirds of the recommended daily physical activity for children and youth. This guide will help you create maps of recommended routes for students to walk with their families or in groups.

This guide provides step by step instructions for creating recommended route maps using free tools. The guide is intended to be used by schools and Safe Routes to School practitioners to develop recommended route maps for school communities, students, teachers, families, and school wellness programs.
