New App Direction 3/5
Best mountain biking app...but with the new update, results are laggy and slow as you move around the map. This needs to be optimized. It used to be so much faster and easier to find and click the trail you wanted. I know this will get worked out long term, but right now, I might as well switch to Trailforks in the meantime.
I want the old app back 2/5
Why did you change so many features? Mileage on segments. Cannot see trail I am on without much maneuvering through the app when out riding. Where is the trail near me?
Useful Tool 5/5
By AV Trail Explorer
It’s become my constant companion when I hop on my mountain bike or lace up my hiking shoes and head off to some new trail.
Latest update has a longtime user switching to Trailforks 2/5
The masters update is a complete mess. When you tap a trail, like a dozen come up instead of just the trail and any featured rides it is used in.
Search doesn’t work correctly either. Not sure what happened here but it’s pretty much unusable now.
I’ve switched to Trailforks.
This app has gotten worse 3/5
I agree that this is a good app, but the latest update is a step in the wrong direction. It takes longer to load and it is really hard to highlight trails by tapping them. I thought this app would get better after REI bought it but it hasn’t.
Great app 5/5
This is a great app that lets you see trails around your location or others places . I just onset of there anyway to upload our own photos to had to the trails so others see different point of views of what the trails look
Love the app!! 5/5
Great for getting updated information on local trails to ride as well as destination places we might visit on vacations.
Like how visible the tracks are on the map but the app is needs a lot of work 2/5
Need to be able to get to your saved right easier you’ve been easier and your progress and what you’ve already done what your top speed is where you hit your top speed where and when you started struggling
By wilis j
I absolutely love this app!
New layout 1/5
Very disappointed with the new layout. Screen is incredibly cluttered and slow to react. Now it takes twice as long to get the information I want from the trails. Also no ability to remove labels from the map as before. Trailforks will be my sole mtb app as of now.
Not happy with Latest upgrade 3/5
The app performance changed with the last update like a month ago. Today for some reason all my areas were empty and I had to download the areas again. I only discovered this while on the trail trying to open a map. Not nice at all.
Beside, with the last update it is slower and each time I go into the app (even if it was left open) the access is not like before, it is slower, it needs to load some data which makes the screen go black for a second... really a change and I don’t see why it does it now.
Amazing insight 5/5
By Nathan Nicholas
This app is phenomenal for beginners and advanced MTB riders alike. Allows you to lookup trails based on location, difficulty, among other factors. Favorite your locations for east access and get updates on trail conditions when others ride. I’ll be looking into the other REI project apps for hiking, etc.
Recent update was a nightmare 1/5
Always crash after recent updates.
Bad update 2/5
This latest update made the app entirely too complicated and tedious to use, especially when on a ride on a new and unfamiliar trail. It was a gem of an app before the redo. Still useful but nowhere near as simple and practical as it was.
Must add for Mountain Bikers! 5/5
By EC wass Here
Wonderful resource for riders of all levels. This app gives perspective to the size of the amazing MTB community worldwide!
Just what I was looking for! 5/5
By Joel 3910
I love how this an evolving app and really keeps current on new trails.
No good in the Denver metro area 1/5
This may work for someone, somewhere but if you live in the Denver metro area, probably best to find a different resource. All this will do is get you lost and frustrated. Maps are inaccurate and ride descriptions don’t match the map graphics. Maybe the authors were high. You should be too if you want to use this crap.

Great App 5/5
By EvAn GrUnDmEyEr
Great app for finding local trails or just getting information.
By David Baz
use this app all the time— absolutely love it
MTB lap top vs iPhone 2/5
By ralph riders
Lap top intuitive except no directions on some. iPhone not user friendly nor intuitive
No longer my go-to app 3/5
This summer’s updates made the app much less useful. It’s no longer as intuitive and information is spread across screens. It works, just not as well as it did. Hopefully the recent reviews will prompt some changes.
Great app 5/5
Great trail app. My go-to tool for mtb trails.
Great App. 5/5
Great App. Nice to try out new trails and see where you are. This App has helped me get out more often due to knowing about more trails. Love the option to pin the trail to keep you going the right way.
Simply Amazing!!! 5/5
Best way to get to know the trails in your area, or in any other area.
Very helpful 4/5
By Outdoor Taos
Very helpful helps me access trails that I enjoy for both winter and summer sports.
The old way was better 2/5
I enjoyed when you could see the whole layout of the trail and how many miles on one format instead of only being able to see sections
New major changes make hard to use 2/5
Disappointed with the update in the last few months. Can’t see full names of trails on small box icons at bottom of map so Very hard to find the trails you are looking for especially in a dense network of trails. Searching for a trail by name is even more frustrating. For example typing in lookout gives you about 40 trails all without any designation of which area or state they are in.
Wish is was back to the old layout.
Best MTB app for my area 5/5
I love this app and suggest it to everyone who rides in the Bay Area. It’s descriptions and reviews of trails are accurate and full of information like trail condidtions, altitude gains and decents, etc.
Fantastic app, super useful 4/5
But the new interface is not as intuitive as the old one. This app used to be a lot better than Trailforks, but after the update it doesn’t quite one up the other apps UIs.
What it has is great, but it is soooo incomplete. 3/5
The app is great as long as you are not under the impression that it is comprehensive. It is far from comprehensive.
Awesome app excellent job can’t say enough great things about this app!
BAD update 1/5
The update destroyed the app. It is no longer intuitive to use. The trails are hard to click on one by one. The trail list gives trails that are not on the map area. It is very hard to get a sense of an area without actually clicking each trail. The elevation is hidden on the tiny mountain icon that took research to find. It is hard to pin and unpin trails. Bring back the old version!
Still needs work. 3/5
I love the on and off the trail navigation and direction it provides. Really easy to integrate with google maps.
The user interface is lacking severely however. It is next to impossible to write a comment and add useful reviews from the App.
I loved the old version. Don’t like the new. 2/5
Please go back to the old version.
Works great but seems to be missing trails 4/5
I enjoy this app, but it doesn’t seem to show the full scope of trails available. Also, on the “downloaded areas” cards, the buttons for go to, update, and delete are way too close together. I have small fingers, but tapping one of these is a game of roulette.
Previous version was definitely better 2/5
New version feels clunky, and the aesthetics are off
Great app!! 5/5
Has all the information you need about the trails. Only thing is that I dont know how to write a review on the trail
One of my “Go To” apps took a turn for the worse 2/5
I use these apps (Hiking and MTB) for both hiking and biking. They have helped me find great trails, kept me safe and on track. Sadly, we cannot turn off the scrolling trail boxes at the bottom of the page. When you are in a slow internet area, where most good trails exist, these tiles slow the app to a crawl. I desperately wish I could toggle the off!!
Also, you can “heart” (Favorite) trails AND “Gems” (sights) but only the trails show up in your favorites area!! Let me reiterate that, you can fav the gems but not find them later.
In closing, I’m a huge REI fan, and a co-op member, but this app needs some tweaking to be as useful as it was in an earlier version.
Can’t live/ride without it. 5/5
Great app. I love it when I’m traveling or even exploring a new area in my home state. Keep up the good work!
Best app ever 5/5
By mtb andrew
I love mountain biking but I can never find trails and this has really helped
Great tool 5/5
Great for beginners and experienced alike. Wonderful resource.
Love this app! 5/5
By RYAN j...
This app is so good for trying out new and exciting trails. Not only does it provide detailed descriptions, ratings, difficulties, and conditions, it also provides riders a chance to review the trail to let other riders know about obstacles and conditions. I would highly recommend this app to anyone and I have no idea what would cause anyone to rate this app poorly. 11/10!
Great way to find new rides 5/5
Love this app. Great way to find a trail and understand what you are getting into prior to going.
Use this every time I’m out for a new ride.
More bugs 1/5
The latest updates seems to of made things worse, the navigation is still bad. And now when you highlight a trail it zooms in and then on highlights the trail. The map is now very jittery, even if you’re not touching the screen it moves all over the place. Can’t we just go back to version three please
My go to App 5/5
I always get found when using MBP tracks. It’s spot on and works great in airplane mode.
Good details 4/5
I like the app. Let’s me ride a trail w/o good cell service. Good for checking out trails where I’ll be going and seeing what to expect or explore. Only real knock is that the App needs to let me add a photo to a trail’s album - if a photo is already posted by someone else then I don’t get the option to add one. Otherwise good app.
Phenomenal resource! 5/5
By AlexT :-)
Thanks for creating and maintaining such an awesome resource, what a great way to promote the sport.
By Bigdickjoe b
If your into mountain biking this app is a must. Extremely helpful.
