The Car Free Walks website has been shortlisted for a national award in a leading walking magazine.
It is a candidate for TGO Magazine's prize for the Environmental or Access Initiative of the Year 2012 and has used its latest e-newsletter to urge supporters to vote online for it.
The site promotes walks that can be easily carried out without needing to park a car anywhere, such as routes well-served by public transport.
While this may help ensure the footprints are made by walking boots
rather than carbon, the site is up against competition from a number of other causes people may support.
These include the Moors for the Future project aimed at restoring vegetation on the High Peak plateaux and the John Muir Trust's Steall Gorge Initiative, which has helped raise the cash to repair the footpath to one of Scotland's most popular beauty spots.
Walkers eschewing cars can in fact enjoy Steall or the highest of Derbyshire's moors by public transport.
A bus from Fort William up Glen Nevis provides access to the former, while the High Peak moors can be reached by trains or buses to towns and villages like Edale, Hayfield and Glossop.
