We're making it easier to plan your adventures in one spot. Photos have officially started rolling out on Routes. Now, you can see what your route looks like before you even get there. Or maybe you'll be inspired to try a new Route that looks enticing.
This feature update is powered by you. Over 2.3 million photos have been added for this launch – and growing! Recently published public photos are used from the Strava community for the Strava community. So you know what to prepare for. Don’t see any photos just yet? Add yours to help build the collection.
Sharing a photo from your activity on a trail or viewpoint can help other users better understand the routes they plan on taking and prepare for great adventures. Featured photos can show you scenic views and even route condition details.
We aim not to show faces or individual markers, but we totally get that you might not want to share every photo. So rest assured that you can use your privacy controls so that photos you don't want to share aren't in the mix.
