Decent app but not great 3/5
By N8P Records
The app has great info on trails and I love the concept, but it is not very user friendly and it’s difficult to navigate. I really want to like it more than I do...so hopefully they make some updates soon.
By ghostface grady
I've been waiting for anhiking version of MTBproj for-ev-errrrrr. Stoke is wicked high on this app. Good descriptions, pictures, and best of all information!!! Ascent and descent. Mileage. Sweet graphs and what not. Stoke. High.
desktop site better than mobile 4/5
title says it all; overall it's a nice tool to plan where to hike next within current gps location or known region
Best free backpacking tool available 5/5
By Bobbbby b
Love this app and the breadth of its information. From casual hikers to through hikers, this is an extremely helpful tool. Cheers to REI and its mission to make the outdoors as accessible as possible! Well done.
Great app! 5/5
I love that I can find local trails and read comments from others. Many of these trails are hidden gems that I would not otherwise be able to find. I find the topo maps to be accurate
Convenient and Accurate Trail Guides 5/5
By Richard Martindale
I’ve used this app to find new parks and trails, and its maps are very helpful when hiking a new trail. The interactive map allows you to track your progress and location on your hike, and the collective hiking community is always adding new photos and information about the trails. Highly recommended!
Not very user friendly 2/5
Hard to navigate and doesn’t feel very intuitive which is too bad because it has a lot of other cool stuff going for it.
App is hard to use 2/5
By DGH 1
Too much efforts on the trail maps which are only moderately useful. Every time you move the screen the app resets. Need more focus on how to drive to trailhead.
The Best Hiking App 5/5
This is by far the best hiking app that I have used. The Trail rating is pretty spot on. The driving directions to the trail head is super helpful. This is probably one of the most useful apps on my phone.
this app is trying to be all things to all people. I get that folks like different types, distances and difficulties in hike but a 1 mile walk is just not a hike, it is a walk.
As currently focused it is useless, it has promise but stick with GaiaGPS for now.
Fantastic Trail and Map App 5/5
Love using the app to find trails, record hikes, and use the downloaded map to stay on the trail!
On the money 5/5
By One for u dude
Excellent app for the needs of the people
Great for all who desire a good hike 5/5
I started getting into hiking on a more serious level several years ago but always had a hard time finding resources that would give me details about a trail. This app not only tells you the trails that aren't on the mainstream, but elevation, trailhead location, pictures, level of difficulty, all you need to know!
Where are all the trails? 4/5
Love the app but not all the popular trails are listed. That’s ok though. I’ll still hike that.
Extremely Useful 5/5
If you are new to an area or discovering sweet spots in your hometown this is my most used goto app for finding information on my hikes. Love it!!
Most helpful! 5/5
I found this app to be super useful as I hiked around Utah, an area I knew nothing at all about. The insights helped find the best trails for my wants and plan accordingly. Love the fact that maps can be downloaded ahead of time and used even when there is no signal. Useful in so many ways!
Needs to catch up with the website 4/5
I really like this app but it lags far behind the website in terms of functionality. The data is stale, can’t submit trails, hikes, photos, or even post comments.
Still, this has the potential to be the best of breed and I look forward to the release that incorporates all of the missing features. It’s worth the wait because of the dedicated and highly knowledgeable community and careful management of submissions.
Keeps freezing - not sortable 1/5
By Greatful yogi
The app and my phone keep freezing since download
There is no way to sort the trails based on length difficulty or location
Wonderful app. Needs Apple Watch app. 4/5
By Rob gavs
This app is great. All it needs is an Apple Watch app to allow phone-free hiking/ trail running. A simple map showing the hiker’s location in the center of the watch face would do to keep on track. Otherwise, just great!
Lost? Help is here! 5/5
One of the best travel apps ever. If you’re one of us who likes to get away from the crowd, out on trails that led to places most never see, this is the app for you.
Hiking Project allows you to download hiking maps of whole regions! Free! The app includes maps elevations, trail ratings, and even other hikers’ pics.
And it uses your phone’s GPS to keep constant track of your location. Away from cell towers. Not sure which fork to take? Just choose one, walk a few dozen steps, and check your phone. It’s that precise.
This is just me of the best deals out there. If you’re a hiker, you need this.
Just the app I was looking for! 5/5
By Nain Jaune
I discovered this app late in my Mammoth trip. It is invaluable to the day hiker! I highly recommend it.
Good, but not great 4/5
Coming from Washington, I feel spoiled with the Washington Trail Association’s resources. Two additions I’d personally like to see would be the ability to filter out hikes based upon season, and the other would be when using the “best of” feature, being able to do a “best of” near a city or area you will be, rather than the entire state.
Excellent App for trail hunters 5/5
No offline maps 1/5
Lacks directions to trailheads 2/5
You know what would be a great feature for a hiking app? Directions to the trail. There is a map that knows where I am, and knows where the trail is, and no way to link between them. I don't want my adventure to be trying to figure out how to get to the trail to hike it. If this feature exist and I can't find it, may I suggest usability testing?
Great potential - not their yet. 2/5
I love the functionality of the app and the design yet, its missing many beautiful and amazing hikes here in Oregon!
Please add more hikes!!!
Love this App 4/5
Needs weather predictions
The app that every hiker needs 5/5
This is is great app that I have used countless times. Being able to access trail maps off line is fantastic because as we all know, the chances of having a phone signal on trail is slim. Knowing the terrain and elevations is a plus with the app and on my last hike, I tracked my location and kept up with what elevation changes I was about to encounter. My only complaint is that I wish the app could save my hike information (miles, elevation gains, etc.). Until this happens, I have to keep track of my data on another app. However, I am sure that as time goes on the app will eventually be able to do so and more. This app is a valuable tool for every hiker.
I love this app 5/5
By the wanders
Really cool to see all the trails near me.
Without this app, I would probably still be on the Franklin Mountains! It totally kept me on track and helped me navigate the very unclear trails. I will be using this anytime I hike from now on!
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!
