    Cannot view a map in online mode at all will only work if you buy a map. Says first map is free but when attempting to download for “offline” use it continuously says an error occurred try later and never works. Won’t spend money on it until I can see that it works and is useful.

  • Best trail map app

    By randumizer
    Strava doesn’t come close. I just wish Rails-to-Trails would implement a better pricing model

  • Buggy, unusable and worthless

    By dfiler
    The map keeps jumping around and undisplaying the trail you’re trying to look at. This makes the app completely useless. Perhaps paying for a trail makes it work. But the free included trail is broken so that would be a gamble. In other words, this app is worthless. I can’t even look at a single trail.
  • Horrible App

    By Housewifey0089
    While in a mountain range that has a plethora of hiking, camping, ATVs, etc. I just downloaded this app for peoples reviews of the options around here and if they had any tips on where to park and what trails allowed dogs.. well, I downloaded this app, put in my location and absolutely none of the local hiking anything popped up.. if I hadn’t already hiked in the area I’d have been completely steered in the wrong direction and finding myself driving BACK DOWN THE MOUNTAIN to go hiking... that doesn’t even make sense. I immediately deleted this app. A complete waste of space on your phone; find another app.
  • Convenience of having a trail map with u is worth the minor cost

    By Tedy14624
    Cudos to the developer for making these maps convenient to have with you
  • not great, but huge potential

    By AaronCLE
    This app has so much potential. It does help me locate a new trail, but there are things that can be much better: 1) when I click a location, sometimes it shows more info and other times it opens in google maps. It is not clear when you’ll get it to open in maps for driving directions and is sometimes impossible to figure out. There should be a clearly defined “open in maps” icon. 2) When maps does open, it does not open in my phone’s default mapping software (Apple Maps) and always opens in google maps. This is terribly inconvenient because when I use my phone to navigate in my car, I use CarPlay for instructions on the large console. Google maps only works on my tiny phone screen. Please update the app to open each device’s default map software, the. I can choose to default to Apple Maps, Google Maps, Waze, or whatever the user wants. 3) When I signed up on TrailLink, I donated $50. Then when I went to the app on my phone, I discover that I have to pay another $30 to get access to the maps. This was super frustrating because I had just given you $50, and had I known up front it was another $30 just to use the app, I would have donated less and then paid the $30 for the app. These two things should be better explained, or ideally fully integrated. 4) The “trails near me” feature only shows a random trailhead on the trail and not the actual trail path. This makes it difficult to actually know what is near me, or where I might want to hop on the trail. Please just display the trails on the map. This app has so much potential. Please make it easier to use.
  • Just some trails, not good for hiking maps

    By Happyface-v2
    This app has very limited maps of hiking or walking trails. They have many rules around what maps they have which is a really bad business practice. Why would I look at an app that shows me a fraction of trails?
