ALLTRAILS – Navigation app
AllTrails is the hiking app I use the most when it comes to planning my hikes, finding new trails to explore, and (before I got my Garmin watch), for tracking my hikes too.
AllTrails is one of the most popular hiking apps and has over 20 million users and 100,000 trails worldwide. You can search based on difficulty, length, elevation gain, user rating, proximity to where you are now, and route type. You can also search for pet-friendly trails which is super useful if you’re hiking with dogs.
You can use a basic version of AllTrails for free, but I highly recommend getting AllTrails Pro if you’re someone who hikes quite a bit. It allows you to download maps to use offline and notifies you if you get off your planned route.
