The Western Front Way is an exciting and dynamic way to discover the outdoor challenges of thru-hiking and thru-biking the trails that connect the length of the first world war trench lines. The trails span from the Franco Swiss border to the Belgian Coast. It is a way to activate global remembrance in a modern way while exploring how diverse and immersive these lines and histories are.
The Western Front Way app navigates you along the 1000km trails. It offers stage by stage distances, navigation, amenities, in-app content, stories, facts, and letters to self-guide you through this part of Europe.
