The number of steps you take in a mile can vary depending on several factors, including:

Your stride length: This is the distance between your two footprints when you take a step. Taller people naturally have a longer stride length than shorter people.

Walking pace: If you're walking quickly and taking shorter steps, you'll cover the same distance with more steps than if you're walking slowly with longer strides.
Here's a general guideline:

Average stride length: Assuming an average stride length of 2.5 feet per step (source: verywellfit.com), you would take around 2,000 steps to walk a mile.

Range: It's common to see people take anywhere from 1,600 to 2,500 steps per mile, depending on their stride length and walking pace.
Here are some tips for estimating the number of steps you take while walking:

Use a fitness tracker or pedometer: These devices can track your steps and provide a more accurate estimate of your walking distance.

Measure your stride length: Walk a known distance (like a measured track) and count your steps. Divide the distance by the number of steps to find your average stride length. You can then use this stride length to estimate the number of steps you take for any walking distance.
Remember, these are just estimates, and the actual number of steps you take may vary.
