Terms Of Use


By clicking below I acknowledge that I am enrolling in, a program created by the American Heart Association, Inc. ("AHA Program").

I am engaging in the AHA Program voluntarily and for my own personal reasons. I understand that it is my responsibility to consult with a physician regarding heart disease.

The AHA programs I am enrolling in may advocate or involve physical activity such as exercise. Such physical activity is a potentially hazardous activity that may involve certain risks. By participating in AHA programs, I assume all associated risks. It is my responsibility to consult with a physician to determine my ability to engage in any and all activities associated with the AHA Programs. It is also my responsibility to use equipment, clothing, and technique that are appropriate for the activities related to the AHA Programs. I am solely responsible for my own safety.

I agree to not sue, and to release, indemnify and hold harmless, the AHA, its affiliates, officers, directors, volunteers and employees, and all sponsors of the AHA programs sponsors and the agents of such sponsors, from any and all liability, claims, demands, and causes of action whatsoever, arising out of my participation in the AHA programs, whether arising from the negligence of any of the above parties or from any other cause. The foregoing release, indemnification, and hold harmless shall be as broad and inclusive as is permitted by the state in which I live.

I consent to the aggregation of my non-identifying information with like information from other people, and I consent to the release of such aggregated information to other parties, including but not limited to the sponsors of AHA. I authorize the AHA to mail me information about the AHA Programs or about other AHA offerings.

I acknowledge and agree that the AHA may discontinue certain AHA programs without notice to me and that I shall have no continuing rights in the AHA programs upon such termination.

I assert that I am the person about whom the information I am providing relates.

If any portion of this agreement is held invalid, the balance shall continue in full force and effect.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to actually create my own walking paths to see those made by others?
Not at all! You can view the American Heart Association Walking Paths, regardless of whether or not you've created your own. You will need to be signed in, however, if you want to save them.
Is there a limit to the number of paths I can create?
We have no limit. Create as many paths as you'd like.
Will other people see the Walking Paths I create?
With each Walking Path, you have the option of keeping it private or sharing with the public. We hope you feel like sharing, though, so others can take advantage of your walking path knowledge. But if you don't want others to see your path, simply check the "Private" box when creating your path.
Can I edit a path once it's created?
You can edit your own Walking Path, but not one created by another user.
Am I able to save my favorite Walking Paths for future viewing?
As long as you're signed in, you can save Walking Paths by clicking the “Add to Favorites” button on the path's page. You can then access your saved paths by clicking the My Favorite Paths link.
How many Walking Paths can I add to My Favorites?
There is no limit to the amount you can save.
How can I add photos to the Walking Paths I create?
After you've created your path, go to the path's page and click the "Edit Path" button. From there, you will see an option to add photos. Simply click the "Browse" button, locate the picture on your computer, and upload it to the page. Make sure to click "Save Changes" once the photo has been uploaded!
Do I need to add photos to my Walking Path?
While you're not required to add any pictures to the paths you create, they do help your creation stand out from the crowd. Pictures are also a good way to encourage other users to follow your path since they'll have landmarks to look for.
Can I add notes to call out points of interest along my Walking Path?
Yes! If you want to alert people to special sights or features along the walk, simply click on a marker point after you've added it to the map. You will then be able to add a note for other users to read.
Does my Walking Path have to be a complete loop?
While your Walking Path must have a beginning and an end, it doesn't necessarily have to be a loop. The walk can start and end in two different places, or you can send users out along a path then have them double back the way they came (by clicking the "Out and Back" button after you've input the farthest point on the map).
Can I share Walking Paths with friends?
Of course you can! You can share the link directly with them, or you can utilize the page's built-in sharing functionality to share via Facebook, Twitter, e-mail and a number of other platforms.
Is there a way I can keep track of all the times I've used a particular Walking Path?
Yes you can. If you click the “Add to My Tracker” button, the walk will automatically be added to your Tracker. You can then keep track of the mileage, intensity and estimated calories burned!
