  • Few issues lately. Oct 2018


    By daniG1973*
    Removing the check-in was a bad idea. Hiding it in the “...” was worse, didn’t know it was there and my history is now not accurate, and now I have to make up a name for each recording on the fly. Waste of time. Please put check-in back where it belongs, it’s a critical feature, and right map loads with the name of the trail on the saved history. I also agree with the other user about trail hopping. In New England many trails connect but are listed separately. If you are no longer on the same one you started it appears you are just going rogue on the map. How about auto loading the newly entered trail? Also being able to edit history would be helpful. There’s been a couple times where I started driving home and forgot to hit pause and save. And why the “pause” button when the trail is complete? It’s a weird way to “finish” or “end hike”. Big issue with crashing during use lately. Thought I was recording and it had crashed once phone was put away. If I didn’t stop to take a pic early i would have gone pretty far without noticing. Stinks for tracking distance 😐. Overall I do love and use and recommend this app almost daily to find trails and track my history. Can’t live without it but its been acting weird lately.
  • Never Ending Trails


    By mopfdt
    I love it! I’ve moved to a new town about a year ago and I’ve only ever known my town hiking spots. So to move somewhere new and not know anywhere to go was frustrating! I love bringing my dogs hiking and even better to find spots they can swim or frolick in the water. BUT once I go somewhere I feel accomplished and ready for the next. So to find so many varieties and close by places to hike is amazing! Whatever town I’m in I just look up what’s around. Whenever I’d Google placed to go there was NOTHING. Or very short and disappointing places. This app is great because it will give you direction right in the app instead of trying to Google Maps it yourself. You can map your rout and GPS where you are to ensure you stay on track and don’t get lost. I’m so much more comfortable going alone when I can see where each path leads and about how long it should take me. People also are great at providing pictures and comments of the trails so it is so easy to find. My biggest annoyance is not being able to find the place to begin with! GPS is all good and dandy but sometimes it will just bring you to the location but the location isn’t clarified. So by people uploading their photos let’s you get a visual of what you’re looking for. Overall, the best app!
  • Long time user

    I love this app and have been using it for years now. It is by far the best GPS tracking app I can find. The maps are detailed and accurate and the descriptions and directions are excellent. Over the years some great upgrades have been made, some of my favorites include being able to download tracks for offline use, marking distance and elevation along a specific track, and being able to create a map by selecting certain trails. There are still some frustrating faults with this app, however. For example, in order to record and keep a GPS recording a track a hike has to be part of an existing trail which can get annoying when I do infrequent or bushwhacking hikes. Having an option to keep tracks privately would be very helpful. One upgrade I would love to see is the ability to edit or add to a track after I finish. Many times in the past I have forgotten to end a track and drove away, the result was an inaccurate GPS track. Also as the app currently is I can’t track multi-day trips, I can pause a track when I stop for lunch, but if I stop for the night my progress disappears. I would like to be able to add to a completed or paused track to be able to record multiple day trips.
  • Maps on watch need improvements


    By Leftquark
    The AllTrails iPhone all is pretty much a 5-star app. My biggest gripe is probably the long load times to lunch the app. I have the latest version which was supposed to improve app launch times but instead I’m seeing some of the slowest launches to date. Today I paused a recording to take some photos and when I came back to the app it took nearly 30 seconds on an iPhone 11 Pro Max. Considering the app was open and running 10 seconds earlier, with a recording paused, I would have expected the app to launch instantaneously. Please fix this, especially when re-launching a paused recording. But my ultimate 3 star review is for the watch app. I love that I can finally see the map on my wrist without having to pull out my phone, but then to shrink the map so small with superfluous information below it, makes the map nearly useless. The watch screen is so small as it is, so having the map shrink to a small square means I can barely see any detail in what’s coming up in the trail. I like that I can select what information is displayed below the map, but I want a “none” option so I can see the map as large as possible! Otherwise I love the app - mostly because it has a bazillion high quality maps and I can easily search and find a trail to hike!
  • Good phone app with a garbage watch app


    By Kernal_Pan1c
    The app itself is the best I’ve found so far at finding trails. This probably because of the wider user support compared to other apps. It does hit your battery a smidge harder than other hiking apps I’ve tried but so far I haven’t had that be a real problem. However, I cannot for the life of me understand the thought behind the watch app design. All you can do is start/stop a recording and then check some basic stats. No map integration for you to quickly check and see what way you should go at the fork in the trail, which seems to me to be most of the reason you’d want this on your wrist. Most of the other options on the app store offer this. Also, still no health integration? Not vital but cmon it’d be nice. Overall I recommend it for finding popular trails and helping you get along while hiking as they’ve got pretty good user support. But man, it’s not updated very often and when new features are added they’re not very well thought out. I’m coming up on the time where I need to renew pro and I’m not sure I will. I might just use google to find the trails and use another more well thought out and feature rich app for the hiking itself.
  • It has a few good qualities


    By Jfdexghffsgvhfdd
    I like this app, it helps me with planning my hikes. There are a fair amount of accuracy issues though that keep me from considering upgrading to Pro though. First is the fact that there are a fair amount of trails that are well out of date. From what I understand users can suggest edits, but only through the website on a computer. I personally am rarely on my computer so am unable to submit the edits, and I feel this is against good trail management practices because it encourages people to use trails that are closed to prevent erosion and overuse. In addition the trail names on the map are more often than not completely different from official trail names so in the event of an emergency that could cause some issues. My second issue is there is no way that I can find to flag inappropriate comments on a trail review. Saying a trail has been “ ruined by Mexican trash and their families” should be able to be flagged for deletion. Lastly for now, I don’t like how you can pick only one trail when you record. I trail hop frequently and just one trail option isn’t very suitable for me and in the community aspect it isn’t helpful with helping others plan their hikes.
  • A helpful friend into unknown territory


    By Chmepl
    I would never be doing the amount of hiking and places I’m exploring if it weren’t for AllTrails app and website. Could not imagine a couple years ago all the different places I would see and many within just a couple hours drive which I was unaware of. When hiking alone, best to know exactly where you can park and condition of trails and this does a fantastic job with the amount of pictures and detailed reviews left by the AllTrails community. The recording feature is great to have to help you remember what you saw after doing many trails (upload photos, mark various waypoints, etc). You can even map out a custom map in advance and load it into the recorder so will notify you if you start getting off course. The various stats it displays are a nice encouragement as well in comparing past hikes/months to see how much to further challenge yourself. Absolutely love this app! I can’t imagine how many more people are probably getting out there more often because of AllTrails. Well done!
  • Free version is good wasn’t impressed with PRO at all


    By Jsmzm
    I would give the free version 5 stars but the paid version 2-3. The free version allows me to see the maps I need and the standard trail when I’m within service areas or no signal just fine. I’ve used the free version for over 10-15 long hikes outside of cellphone service areas. I purchased the pro access today before an attempted long hike and it made absolutely no difference when I was in the middle of trying to hike a trail at 11,000 ft altitude snowshoeing through snowed over trails with way over 5 feet of snow. My main objective was accessing the topography maps and weather overlays. I downloaded the maps before hitting the trail, but once I was I was on the trail I didn’t have access to them since there was no signal. I got the same features as I did with the free version so I was somewhat disappointed. The app also constantly resets so you have to bring up the map several times which isn’t ideal if you out hiking trying to make sure you stay on track, while also looking out for wildlife.
  • Get app with eye to future


    By Chasgard
    I have used this app for a couple of years now with the pro version. In the beginning it might have had issues but I think they are tied to performance issues of the phone and the network and satellite hardware. I have been to many trails and it has worked great. This new lifeline feature is going to be great especially for my wife since I usually hike alone. It has helped me get back on the trail in areas where the trail is poorly marked or no real markings at all like out in West Texas. I took a turn off a trail ( not on purpose) thinking that was the trail. It was the most dangerous turn possible. I finally sat down and pulled out my phone and looked at my all trails plot. I was way off but too dangerous to back track. So I plotted a way across the steep mountain side to reconnect to the actual trail. On thing that would be nice is if would tell me when I have diverged from the trail with a voice warning kinda like google maps or tell me I’m at an intersection and take the left turn again via a voice notification.
  • AWESOME APP but Needs One Addition


    By Todd_M_Peterson
    I love this app! I ride an Adventure Bike (GS 1200) and the reviews are great to research various trails to determine if I’m able to do them or how much effort the trail will require. The GS 1200 is a BIG motorcycle and I like knowing if there are “Rock Gardens”, massive ruts, steep declines, etc. Other users often give distances to significant trail challenges which comes in handy!!! Of course, remember that trail conditions change constantly so don’t ride wild based on reviews... The one addition that is needed (in my opinion) is an additional FILTER Category of “Adventure Riding” or “Off Road Motorcycling”. It’s easy enough to use “Off Road Driving” to identify trails that are open to Off Road Riding but the numerous trail user write ups is mostly from rock crawlers or 4x4’ers. I often read these when I’m out and about riding the trails and it would make reviewing up and coming trails much quicker. I upgraded to the Pro version last year and it is the best money I have spent on an app!
