This hiking app aids in connecting like-minded adventurers interested in taking a walk together. The yet to launch hikewith.me platform helps hikers develop friendships naturally by bringing together those with similar interests.

Users would create a profile and answer some questions about their hobbies so others on the hiking app can see who is available in the area for a hike or has plans for a walk in the future. The digital social network lets hikers communicate using an algorithm similar to those used by matchmaking services. Coming soon, the mobile application allows people to plan meet-ups, schedule them and then arrange the meeting details.

While the digital platform connects people, it's the face to face time that truly connects them.
