WONDERFUL APP! 5/5
This is a wonderful resource. Info, pics, commentary, maps, everything!!
NOT USER FRIENDLY 1/5
Where do I find the information about the green circle, black square, blue diamond and what those means? I have no clue!
Great app 5/5
Good information, very usable, surprisingly thorough
Must Have 5/5
Great app. A must have for when there is no cell service. GPS guides you even offline. Just download the maps.
Fantastic on the trail 5/5
It's been really useful, easy to use, and accurate. Thanks for a wonderful free app.
The best, and will continue to improve. 5/5
This is my go-to app for hiking - there are a ton of trails in Georgia, and while some aren't in the app yet, it's important to remember that this app relies primarily on USERS to update these smaller or less well known routes. Love the blue dot "compass" which is reliable even when offline.
Clunky navigation and discovery 3/5
App looks nice but using it to find nearby hikes is tedious. You either flip through the "best of" section looking at some hikes that could be hours away (and then puzzle out how to get back to find more), or you have to drill down into a map and continuously zoom. Would be much simpler if right form the start, it just gave you a list with the closest stuff on top.
Just Fantastic 5/5
Full of information, photos and reviews. And all at no cost. My go-to app to find new hikes.
Great potential 2/5
Love UI on this app. it simply doesn't cover even half of the hikes in my area (Western and Central Montana). Hope it's updated with info on more trails in the future. Until then i'll be searching for a different app to use.
What about dog owners? 3/5
I wish I could sort for dog friendly trails.
Doesn't Work on My Phone 1/5
By Luke J J
Had an error message that maps could not download though I had a wifi and cell signal. Uninstalled and reinstalled, same problem. Can't wait to have this app on my phone when it works.
Now it's very easy for me as well as my sister to explore my state without paying a dime! This app is encouraging me to do this more than ever!
Awesome, but... 2/5
Just used this in a hike towards Mt Daniel and Cathedral Rock. Followed me on my phone even while in airplane mode. Awesome! Didn't even know it could do that. Good maps, again, even without a connection. My only problem is I can't figure out how to share/upload my tracks to the Hiking Project itself. Help?
Awesome app! 5/5
Love the ability to find and explore hiking around my new place--where to go, what to expect, and conditions.
First hike w/ dad 5/5
By DJ Slim88
Today was our first hike together and what a treat.
Hikers Should Love This! 5/5
I have been a die-hard backpacker ever since I was able to walk. My family raised me on the trails, and in high school I finally started out on adventures of my own. I love discovering the perfect trail, or getting lost in a web of trails and stumbling onto something magical. This app allows us to document and maintain this amazing hobby. I love using it to determine the next adventure, and when my trail doesn't appear on the app, I can GPS record it. If you love hiking, or want to get into it this is the perfect app for you.
Love this app 5/5
I take this app with me every time I hike and I use it to plan my trips and pick new trails. The profiles and pictures are a great help in selecting my next trip.
An incredible utility 5/5
I've found the hiking project immensely useful. The maps are pre loaded so even if you don't have a connection, it's still of use. The trail network is extensive and there are frequent updates to trail conditions which is fantastic in the shoulder seasons. A must have app for a hiker.
By Hunter sage jasmen
Not a lot of areas on this app with regard to Colorado. Surprised as it seems REI is a sponsor. But maybe that's good so it will keep crowds down!
Great app, but needs GPS integration to get to trails 3/5
App is great, but directions or even opening Google Maps for you with the coordinates to the trail head would be great.
Great so far, but... 4/5
Seems to be a really good app so far but you really need to make a back button. When looking at trails its a long process to get back out to look at other trails.
Love this app 5/5
Great app to use when hiking. Great to record places also.
Was excited to start using this and uploading trails.
1 catch, you can't record a trail unless you have an internet connection. Not too many places in the N. GA mts with internet.
**I deleted and reinstalled and seems to be working fine.**
**Seems to hang quite often when pulling up the trails list and scrolling. I have to exit and re-enter to move again.**
What a great app idea 5/5
I just got this but am already enjoying the information. Can't wait to use locally and on vacation this summer! Thanks REI!
Not complete 2/5
By Wipe nae
The trails on this app that I have hiked are not complete, I'm not sure of the ones I haven't hiked.
Free? Incredible 5/5
What an amazing app! I cannot believe that this is free. It is so easy to use and packed full of information. Makes planning for hikes a breeze. Thanks to the developers!
User Friendly 5/5
I've used other apps and this one opens up quickly and clearly
Navigating through this app has been so fun and less stressful knowing you are getting up to date information
Perfect for anyone 5/5
As a beginner (or someone just getting back into hiking) this app helps you find a good trail and helps you stay on it.
Nerding out while hiking 5/5
"Nerding out while hiking " a quote from my 13 years old daughter and hiking buddy...
Love the app
Amazing app! 5/5
Made my vacation! Found the best hikes based on featured hikes and great to use even when we had no cell service! Recommend to everyone who likes to hike!
Great app for outdoors! 5/5
Thanks for creating a great app that makes it easy to enjoy the outdoors!
Great start, could use some added features 3/5
What about adding campsites to the maps?
Are there ways to connect other devices to track your routes for the app?
Awesome app 5/5
By The makers helper
This app is awesome. Packed with details and information. I use it to look at trails I want to try before heading to the site. I can get enough info from the app to determine if it is family friendly prior to heading to the trail. No ads, works offline, and is free. I would pay for this app if they charged for it. They also have other great apps like biking project.
So helpful!!! Love it. 5/5
Helped me navigate my backpacking tip on the Appalachian. My only "complaint" is that springs are not marked, but the shelters are and normally they go hand in hand.
Wonderful App 5/5
I love this thing. As trails continue to get added and reviewed, this thing will be a game changer for casual and experienced hikers alike.
This app RULES!!! 5/5
By The man dude guy
This is awesome. And me and my wife are going on a 48 day trip through the national parks and I can already tell it's going to be a must for the adventure. And when we're done and move to my grandparents in WV, we will once again take advantage of this amazing app and it's features. You'll love it.
Seems good at first glance 4/5
New to the app but it appears to have accurate info. After some additional use I will update review with more detailed comments
Simply Amazing 5/5
Upon moving to Colorado, our plan has been to get out and enjoy the great outdoors every weekend. This app makes it super simple to find trails nearby. The reviews provided have been great so far. Looking forward to finding many new trails thanks to the Hiking Project!
Great hiking app 5/5
By Dsimpson 1712
Perfect for use along side a map
I absolutely love these apps, including the Trail Running version. Lots of great features, and I love how easy it is to find nearby trails.
Great App now let's get Apple Watch companion! 5/5
I love this app and it would be one even better with Apple Watch app. I would gladly switch from Trails to Hiking Project!
Great app for exploring new areas 5/5
I travel a lot and use this app to plan out hikes and trail runs. Maybe add a layer feature for weather so I do not have to constantly check a different app.
Love the app 5/5
This app is very helpful in finding get trails and current conditions! Thanks REI!
Frozen App 2/5
Just downloaded this app with iPhone 7 and initially it worked. Now, it frozen. I am not going delete and reinstall because if it does it now, it has the potential to freeze during hikes I'm not familiar. Can't afford to.
good to use
Great app 5/5
Practical, well designed
Amazing to plan hikes! 5/5
Simply the best you can have - gps, maps, trails with rating, directions to parking areas. Thank you!
This app is very beneficial when hiking a new trail that has confusing turns or times when trails intercept. I absolutely love this app and it's helped me find so many new trails nearby
Very useful app for planning hikes 5/5
In my area (Northern New Mexico) this app is very accurate, up to date, and useful for planning purposes. The writer for the hiking trails I use is, annoyingly, a trail runner, so many of the comments he has made about trail conditions focus on stream crossings, which aren't so critical to my purposes. However the mileage, grade, and altitude information is great. When I'm actually on a trail I rarely have cell service, but the app somehow still syncs with the my iPhone's GPS and I can at least see my location on a trail map. Overall, highly recommended for New Mexico hikers. I haven't used the app for any other state.
