Best App for Hikers: The Ultimate Hiking Guide App You Can Trust
AllTrails is a crowdsourced hiking guide app where you can view (and save!) over 60,000 hiking, running and biking trails.
The AllTrails team is based in San Francisco and has the support of several A-list investors like Spectrum Equity and Camp Ventures. When Russell Cook originally founded AllTrails, it was exclusively targeted towards experienced backpackers and hikers. As the years went by, he opened doors to a broader range of people, providing them with the opportunity to encounter and fall in love with nature.
AllTrails is a crowdsourced hiking guide app where you can view (and save!) over 60,000 hiking, running and biking trails. Look through photos and reviews uploaded by other trekkers before tackling any hiking areas so you know exactly what to expect. And depending on your preferences, filter them to only display dog-friendly, child-friendly, and even wheelchair-friendly trails!
When you find yourself lacking hiking inspiration, you can always follow high-profile users to discover new, unexplored territories. Use your phone as a GPS tracker tool or notify social media of your whereabouts. Some trails are inevitably trickier to navigate, but with AllTrail’s highly interactive map, you won’t have to worry about getting lost.
AllTrails is featured on Tech Crunch and Digital Trends, and is ranked at #17 for Health and Fitness in the App Store. It’s free to download, but with an annual subscription of $29.99 or a one-time payment of $99.99, you can utilize offline maps (with optional topo and terrain layers), access real-time weather reports, and enjoy the app ad-free.
If you’re a hiking enthusiast who proudly calls the mountains a second home, AllTrails will definitely be your #1 hiking guide. Download the app and embark on your next adventure!
But enough about other people's apps.
