I rarely write reviews 5/5
But this app is incredible and I feel compelled to support the developers. What’s most useful is the ability to carry offline maps and to see location on trail as riding. Also love the ability to see the elevation view to understand the climb/descent profile and to have that tied to the position on the map as one scrubs the elevation view. Just really well done. Won’t ride without it.
Feature request 4/5
It would be very helpful to save map tiles for specific areas.
Stuck on load screen 2/5
I was directed to this app by a buddy of mine who is an avid mountain biker. He said that this app was amazing and i need to get it. I was super excited to get it. However I now have it and it just stays on the load screen forever. I want to give this app a try and a higher rating so please please please fix the bug so I can enjoy it.
Almost unusable. 1/5
This may be the worst piece of software ever written by a human. It is almost impossible to navigate. The menus are complex and completely non-intuitive. Also it appears as if whoever wrote the software has never been on a bicycle of any kind. Virtually any other kind of navigation software will be better than this one.
Take it easy with the ducking dialogs 1/5
The location unavailable nag appears every ducking ten seconds
By Popcorn piccer
I’ve used this app twice on remote, unfamiliar trails with no cell or data service. Both times it has helped me stay on track and even make in-ride adjustments to my route with what I consider incredible accuracy. It also seems to me that their ascent measuring is as accurate as anything else available. Great app.
Not working for me 1/5
I want to love this app but can’t even open it. It sits on the trail forks load screen and never actually loads. I am not sure why and haven’t had any other problems with other apps. Hopefully it will work itself out so I can give it a better rating.
In your next update fix this bug please!
The app opens and never stops loading so I can’t do anything but sit there until my phone turns off when on its own. Please fix this I love the app and I will up my rating once you fix this.
Great app but... 2/5
GPX download is broken from the app. Please fix this bug!
Location Services 1/5
Stop with the turn on location services pop up.
Fun app. Find new trails feature is best. 5/5
By Mike T Dallas TX
I don’t use all the features or run it while riding , but I have found new trails to ride since I moved. Awesome.
Apple Watch 4/5
Please add Apple Watch app
Excellent map app! 5/5
By new old meditator
This app is so helpful. It rates the rides, gives you the altitude and grade of the ride and where you are while on the ride. Great trail descriptions. We used it while on Sedona and helped us find our way to trails we didn’t know. Very glad to have this. Thanks so much for all the work developing and maintaining it!
Tap on the red mountain 5/5
Why can’t we tap on the mountain and get the name of the area?
lots of bugs. 1/5
latest version is very buggy, and yet no updates for two months ?
best app for MTB routes BUT... 3/5
downloading the GPX files are not working, please fix this! I love this app so much but I never have service where I ride and need the GPX files on another app.
if possible, let me know when this big bad bug is squished
App freezes when you try to discover rides 1/5
Try to load a discovered ride of any significant length and the app will freeze with the only remedy being a re-install.
Won’t let me open the app 1/5
Won’t let me open the app
The app hasn’t been able to open lately and I know this is a good app because my friends use it but mine won’t ever load, and I don’t know what happened.
Best mountain bike trail app period! 5/5
This app is the best mountain bike trail app ever! I love the ability to find new trails, I can even link my Strava account to this app to record new trails. Pictures of the trails and trail reviews are awesome!
Best app! 5/5
This is, hands down, my favorite app on my phone. It is so user friendly. I can use it whenever, even without cell service, which happens a lot on the mountains. The maps are informative and useful. Awesome app!
Best MTN bike trail app 5/5
The detailed trails of this app make it so much easier to plan out a ride versus other trail apps. Use this app at least 4 times a week.
Freezes every 2 days, worthless on iPhone 2/5
It won’t work! 1/5
By BM Rider
I downloaded the app and it won’t even open it just stays on the green Trailforks page and I have tried everything! I have redown loaded it multiple times but every single time it does the same thing.
Awesome app! 5/5
Besides the usefulness, great customer service!
Was working great 3/5
Until a recent update this app was fine. Now every time I want to use it I have to close it first and re-open it in order for it to load.
Opened once.CRAP! 1/5
Great app IDEA!! DOESNT OPEN ONCE YOU DOWNLOAD!! I used this once and can’t open it since. Crap.
It was nice the one and only time it worked.
Doesn’t load in a timely matter 1/5
Tried to use quite a few times but won’t open when I try to use it 75% of the time. Not a reliable app.
Great app 5/5
Hands down the BEST mountain biking app I have ever used! Shows u all the trails and ur location. Highly recommend
doesn't load 1/5
was really excited when I found this app cause I like the website but it won't ever load for me. I can be connected to WiFi and have good service but it doesn't help
Fantastic App 5/5
There’s not one better app for finding mountain bike trails. I use it all the time, both in planning rides and during rides. Can’t recommend it enough to people who don’t have it. Pinkbike really hit this one out of the park.
Please Stop GPS Reminders 5/5
By Hors Catagoire
As a new user I’d like to just study maps without being constantly reminded that my GPS is not turned on. Besides that seems like a good source of trail knowledge.
This Is A Must Have App 5/5
By Scope Enterprise
I love the pink bike website so I thought that I would try out this app from them. Let me tell you that this app is amazing. I thought that and app could not have as much information as this app has. This app is so amazing that it has features that I did not even think that an app would have. This is an app that I would recommend any cyclist to get. If you are a mountain biker then this is your dream app.
Best Mtn Biking Trail App 5/5
I’ve used other biking trail apps but after finding Trailforks I’ve found this one far superior.
Awesome app! So happy I found this. Total game changer.
Corrupted data 3/5
About every other month of using this app I get a notification that my app has become corrupted and I need to delete and reinstall the app. What’s going on?
Trailforks is awesome 5/5
I love this app! It tracks your position on the trail and within the elevation profile so you know what’s coming at any given point (provided data and location are enabled). Used it on 3 trails yesterday and it was spot on. Thanks, developers. In the current of hastily thrown together junk apps, you’ve got a winner in my book.
Must have but persistent bugs limit usability 3/5
Love this app for its ability to have you discover new trails and finding your location within trail systems.
However, the ride logging freezes or simply doesn’t upload your ride almost every other time I use it. I was hoping that this would be resolved by now.
The app also tends to just close out for no apparent reason. Just now I lost a 20 mi ride because of this. Would easily be the best MTB app if it would run properly.
Feature Requests 5/5
This is a great application that I use and contribute content to regularly. I have a few suggestions that I think will make the tool even more useful.
Bike Maintenance: Trailforks knows how many miles and hours I’m logging on my specific bikes. It would be awesome if I could track my bike maintenance in the app as a simple time stamp, bike and description. When viewing an item on the schedule show the accumulated hours and miles on the associated bike since this time stamp.
Winter Trail Reports: More trail conditions specific to winter riding. I suggest: Deep/loose snow, packed snow, ice.
Map View OSM layer option: In many riding areas trails have been added to OpenStreetMap but have not been added to Trailforks yet. Being able to view OSM map data in the map view as a layer much like you can in the track editor would be a great way to research new riding areas and perhaps lead to contributed content.
Apple Watch support needed 2/5
This app is good ..but having to keep pulling my phone out of my pocket to make sure I’m on the rite trail is annoying. I don’t want my phone on a mount on my handlebars.. so please bring watch support. As for now it’s a 2 Star app for me. Pink bike does have the capability and funds for this to happen.
Doesn’t work anymore 3/5
I love the product and it used to work for me but now it just opens and has a list of commands and then closes.
Incredible free app 5/5
I can’t think of a thing they missed here. Such a great app, I would happily pay for it, but the best part? It’s free!!!
So useful! 5/5
By MT birds
This app is the only way my boyfriend and I were able to navigate really remote terrain in MT. Thank you for creating such a useful tool for biking, skiing and hiking!
Excellent App 5/5
Not really sure what's not to like. I've tried many apps for mountain biking maps and tracking rides over the years, and this one just had what I need. I can find unofficial trails, track my ride so I can share, and know where I am if I need reassurance. Once a trail was miss-marked on the Ashland, OR map, but that was user-error and wasn't that hard to figure out. New rides are popping up all the time!
Would be lost without it. 5/5
So so so critical for anyone who's recently moved or travels. This app has completely changed my riding for the better.
Great app 4/5
I love this app. I do have one problem with it though that it keeps telling me it’s corrupted and I have to delete it and reinstall it.
Lots of trails, lacks rides 2/5
Has a lot of trails, but lacks bigger rides and loops that combine multiple trails. Difficult to put together bigger rides or loops in dense trail areas.
No topography when in Airplane Mose. 3/5
So I downloaded my region, but when I get in the backcountry and am in Airplane Mode I get a gray screen with only the trails marked. There is no topography and when there is you can only zoom in so far. I like the other things about this app, but the offline mapping is worthless. MTB Project shows detailed topography even when offline. From a mapping standpoint MTB Project is far superior.
Works great 5/5
I love the app but it would be cool if you guys added directional arrows to the trails.
