  • AllTrails saved me a rescue. Jan 25, 2021

    By stephb11188
    A couple years back I took on an ambitious 13 mile day hike by myself on beautiful sunny day in the Colorado Rockies. While I was familiar with the area, I had never done this specific route before. I had not brought a compass or my SpotX (dumb move) so I had AllTrails pulled up running in the background of my phone so I could refer to the GPS on the map. I had made it over the mountain pass and was making my way down the other side back down to treeline to discover the trail had been washed out. I didn’t think anything of it and started following the creek thinking it ‘ah it’s probably just down here.’ I walked about a half mile before I realized I wasn’t in the right place. I got completely turned around and had no idea which way led back up to where I came from and I had zero cell service. After a brief moment of panic, I remembered I had AllTrails was running so I pulled out my phone and slowly but surely followed the little blue dot as I moved through the woods. According to the map, it was close but I still couldn’t see it. After about 15 minutes, I heard voices and saw people walking above me. I had found the trail! I bushwacked up, took a deep breath and continued on my way. Thanks to AllTrails, I manage to right my path and get back to where I need to be. While it’s not accurate 100% of the time, it truly is a great resource.

    So many good finds using this app! One of my most used apps on my phone. Once in awhile the directions to get somewhere can be a little off but that's probably less than 3% of the time and if you look at the reviews people will tell you what to actually do to get to where you're headed. This has been game changer however I love it!

    Removing the check-in was a bad idea. Hiding it in the “...” was worse, didn’t know it was there and my history is now not accurate, and now I have to make up a name for each recording on the fly. Waste of time. Please put check-in back where it belongs, it’s a critical feature, and right map loads with the name of the trail on the saved history. I also agree with the other user about trail hopping. In New England many trails connect but are listed separately. If you are no longer on the same one you started it appears you are just going rogue on the map. How about auto loading the newly entered trail? Also being able to edit history would be helpful. There’s been a couple times where I started driving home and forgot to hit pause and save. And why the “pause” button when the trail is complete? It’s a weird way to “finish” or “end hike”. Big issue with crashing during use lately. Thought I was recording and it had crashed once phone was put away. If I didn’t stop to take a pic early i would have gone pretty far without noticing. Stinks for tracking distance 😐. Overall I do love and use and recommend this app almost daily to find trails and track my history. Can’t live without it but its been acting weird lately.

    I haven't used it on trail yet, but it looks promising, I will review soon. Update...I have been using AllTrails everywhere during my travels. It's the best thing since bread, cheese and wine (for a picnic on the trail that is). Update: I bought the pro version and it is a very disappointing experience. It is supposed to track you down with the GPS, but no such thing I couldn't find the trails

  • Great app with one major flaw May 5, 2020

    By EvoRacer37
    I’ve been using AllTrails for a couple months now and I love it. It is a 5 star app by far, yet that is not my rating for it. There are a few quirks I have with the UI, but they are not worth mentioning as they are minor and do not effect the app use whatsoever. My only real issue, which caused my 4 star rating (which killed me to do so), is the fact that you CANNOT LAUNCH THE APP WITHOUT A CELLULAR OR WIFI CONNECTION!! It is ridiculous, plain and simple. I am a Pro subscriber to AllTrails. I did this solely so I could download trail maps prior to going in case I lost service on the trail. That feature works beautifully. But let’s say you download your map, head out to your trail, arrive and go to open app to use the map that is already saved on your phone. Guess what?? Unless you have service, you can’t open the app! So it’s essentially useless. The last thing I want to do is have to add “open AllTrails prior to leaving home” to my to do list to get ready. AllTrails, lets be real for a minute. Hiking, biking, exploring, etc. are all off the grid things! Chances are you won’t have service if you are in a remote location. Fix this issue!! Make an offline version of your app so that paid users who have already downloaded maps can actually use them! With that said, this is an amazing app that is worthy of 5 stars. It is just failing miserably in one particular area that is critical to its use.

    Dont get me wrong, the app is great if you have internet connection. Once you loose service the app doesn't display the map evem if you have already download it. So, it becomes kind of useless for offline use. It is a bit pricey for occasional hike. It used to be able to use other map apps like Here to get driving directions to the hike you were planning to do but, now it defaults to Google Maps. Not everyone is using Google Maps for navigation.

    Very mediocre app. It does have real time following. That's the only good thing about it. Requiring a yearly fee for downloads was a rip-off. And downloading didn't give any significant additional functionality as far as navigation, and that's what I cared about. I might as well have used a downloaded map from the internet, which are available free for many trails. Meh

    You're better off sticking to the website. In the app if you want to click on a trailhead that has multiple hikes it makes you zoom in to the closest possible zoom just to 'explode' the pinhead so you can select a hike. Then to actually see the hike on the map you have to zoom out and most of the time when you zoom out it deselects the trail so you accomplish nothing. The website lets you explode pins and select hikes from the 30,000 foot level and therefore does not have this problem.

    Created a map and prepared a month for my thru hike. Bought the pro version and starting now without any internet connection, and seems to crash in every way possible. Wants to download the map over and over again, won't load into recording and lifeline crashes as well. I've downloaded the map many times before with connection but it never seemed it was actually downloaded. Now I have nothing and frustrated on the trail

    The app used to work properly, but it sucks now. Just try to download a trail map. The download never stops, and there is no way to cancel it. It is still downloading after a week!!!!! That is very unlikely that they are unaware of such a big issue. Still have all the different troubles that one might experience when using an app. Even the sign in part of the app does not work. The app is completely dysfunctional.

  • MUST HAVE APP! Jul 24, 2020

    By OriginalRedlayce
    I absolutely LOVE this app!! I hike alone 90% of the time and I love this for finding new trails, staying in trail and keeping someone in the know of my whereabouts. I love the pictures, reviews and recordings submitted by real people so I can understand whether it’s something I think I could handle or not. The only downsides I’ve come across so far are 1) when you’re flipping through submitted photos, you can tap in the white area near the persons name who submitted it in order to see how long ago it was (ie a month, week, year etc) BUT! Be careful!! I’ve accidentally hit “suggest hide” on a couple photos and you can’t undo that!!!! Super frustrating!!! I’m not trying to flag or hide anyone’s photos! I just wanna know when it was taken. I’m sorry people! 2) when you’re looking for trails in your area using the map, you have to zoom in/out to the perfect spot for the trail markers to pop up. They disappear really easily if you zoom in or out too much in the slightest or if you move the map position even a tiny bit. I feel like those are both easy fixes. I recommend any outdoorsy people download the app. It’s fun to pick hikes for each other when you live states away and then chat about them after you’ve completed them! I love this app!

  • Never Ending Trails Aug 7, 2018

    By mopfdt
    I love it! I’ve moved to a new town about a year ago and I’ve only ever known my town hiking spots. So to move somewhere new and not know anywhere to go was frustrating! I love bringing my dogs hiking and even better to find spots they can swim or frolick in the water. BUT once I go somewhere I feel accomplished and ready for the next. So to find so many varieties and close by places to hike is amazing! Whatever town I’m in I just look up what’s around. Whenever I’d Google placed to go there was NOTHING. Or very short and disappointing places. This app is great because it will give you direction right in the app instead of trying to Google Maps it yourself. You can map your rout and GPS where you are to ensure you stay on track and don’t get lost. I’m so much more comfortable going alone when I can see where each path leads and about how long it should take me. People also are great at providing pictures and comments of the trails so it is so easy to find. My biggest annoyance is not being able to find the place to begin with! GPS is all good and dandy but sometimes it will just bring you to the location but the location isn’t clarified. So by people uploading their photos let’s you get a visual of what you’re looking for. Overall, the best app!

  • Good app, but ... Jul 24, 2020

    By mt_shasta_hiker
    I have been using the app for hiking and mountain biking. It´s very valuable and makes you feel really confident and worry free, that you are following the right trail and that you will get home safely. Although, I have found 2 things, which need improvement : 1) I was recording my day hike and when I got back to my car, I wanted to save the hike, review it etc. But, there was no cell phone signal, which typically there isn’t, when you hike, so the application wouldn’t let me finish the process of saving/reviewing/adding comments. Then I drove back to town and wanted to finish this process. But the application, was basically asking me, if I want to continue recording, if I said “no”, the only choice it gave me, was to clear the data. Of course, I don’t want to add car drive to my hiking trip ...., 2) The other improvement is related to it. I think, if one is recording hiking trip and then forgets to save it, when gets back to car, the application should automatically detect, that obviously one is not hiking anymore, since the speed is > 10 miles/hour. It should then, ideally, ask you, if you want to make the car ride part of your recording or not. Actually, this happens to me a lot, that I forget to stop recording or that I’m not able to save the trip, because of missing cell phone signal.

  • Get the Details, Hike with Confidence! Sep 6, 2020

    By RoseCityCat
    This beats a trail book for excellent topo maps. The recent user trail comments are incredibly helpful for understanding current trail conditions. Love the posted photos so you can get an idea of views you will encounter. I love the fact that Printed maps show an elevation guide. Very cool that you can view a trail, and then see “nearby trails” allowing you to quickly assess what’s available in a given area. The reason for 4 stars is that the program needs several improvements 1) the trail creation features are not simple to access and use and can snap onto the wrong segment and can be problematic to close on loop trails for accurate distance measurement. 2) maps only print at specific ratios (not perfectly zoom customizable) so often trail is printed too small or large. I often have to split trail into 2-3 pages to get good detail. 3) the chosen route prints as a continuous red line and covers up the forest service trail numbers... forcing you to hand label printed maps with the #s if you are linking trails etc. Those deficiencies aside, AllTrails is an amazing tool to plan. It’s given me the confidence to discover and hike trails I would have never attempted otherwise. App is nice for downloaded trail map. GPS point can help confirm current location which is reassuring!

    I've loved using this app over the past year to help me find new trails and destinations for hiking, get tips from other hikers regarding parking and directions, and keep track of where I am. I went ahead and purchased Pro when the Christmas sale was going on so I could continue using AllTrails when I had no service, but since then I've had an issue of My Lists and the trails on them not loading, or taking several minutes to load - which is preventing me from using this app to the fullest.

    I love this app and still use it a lot. previous issues have been fixed, thank you. my current issue, that I've noticed for awhile now, is that it takes several minutes (if at all) for photos of a trail to load. usually I just give up and log in on a computer if I'm near one.

  • Maps on watch need improvements Feb 18, 2020

    By Leftquark
    The AllTrails iPhone all is pretty much a 5-star app. My biggest gripe is probably the long load times to lunch the app. I have the latest version which was supposed to improve app launch times but instead I’m seeing some of the slowest launches to date. Today I paused a recording to take some photos and when I came back to the app it took nearly 30 seconds on an iPhone 11 Pro Max. Considering the app was open and running 10 seconds earlier, with a recording paused, I would have expected the app to launch instantaneously. Please fix this, especially when re-launching a paused recording. But my ultimate 3 star review is for the watch app. I love that I can finally see the map on my wrist without having to pull out my phone, but then to shrink the map so small with superfluous information below it, makes the map nearly useless. The watch screen is so small as it is, so having the map shrink to a small square means I can barely see any detail in what’s coming up in the trail. I like that I can select what information is displayed below the map, but I want a “none” option so I can see the map as large as possible! Otherwise I love the app - mostly because it has a bazillion high quality maps and I can easily search and find a trail to hike!

  • Will be looking for another app... Dec 17, 2020

    By snowMonkey28
    Overall the app is great! Easy to use, helpful to find new trails, pretty great tracking and mapping. The only complaint I have, and it is a deal breaker for me, the save and clear buttons are right next to the record button. When you pause, and then go to start again there is a chance you’ll end your current ride, walk, etc. Terrible placement for those. It is common we will ride, and at some point pause for water, session, snack, and then the save button is accidentally hit or even sweat falling on the phone has cleared a current ride. It’s insanely frustrating when you want the recorded 10-15 mile path for reference or whatever and it is cleared from accidentally hitting save. I feel like that is a really terrible issue to even have to worry about. Even having a “You sure?” after selecting save would be great; then you could back out of it. Started looking into other apps to use and found I really enjoy Strava. Great community with that app. I recommend checking it out and using it. The clear button does have a “You sure?”, but save doesn’t. I like that someone reached out to me about the issue, and again, the app is great overall. Although I responded, there was never a response from them.

    I would've given this app 5 stars until recently. But the last 3 hikes I've gone on in the last week the GPS has been inaccurate. Once got us completely lost, one had us off the trail, and another stopped working. We've downloaded the map before going and still having issues. Not sure I'll keep this app.

  • Offline/map browsing of trails frustrating Nov 21, 2020

    By jeremykallman
    I paid for pro but it is not living up to expectations. My main gripe is the main map browsing experience and offline mode. I use trailforks for mountain biking and really appreciate being able to download all maps for a state at once and then when using it, offline is not something I have to think about. Not so with this - I have multiple times forgotten to download maps and been out of luck. And recently I thought I could just get by with the base map but when I pulled it up and started to look at it the map was replaced with a blank screen with offline warning. I practically threw my phone because why on earth could the useful map not be left there for me to look at. This is for hiking and trails don’t have cell service often so I find it somewhat inexcusable that offline mode is so second rate.

  • Wish the map actually showed the trails Sep 20, 2020

    By Blipblipblop
    I have paid for other trail subscriptions through other companies and I feel like this one is really lacking in one area. At least for a paid subscription you should be able to see trail outlines when viewing a map of all the trails in an area, not just a circle defining a trail is arbitrarily in that area. All of the trails should be visible in the full scale map with more detail shown the further you are zoomed in. I should be able to see not just a dot of the trailhead on the main map but also the trail and with the ability to click the trail. This makes it much easier to understand where a trail will go without needing to click on every single trail to understand if it’s the trail that goes up over the ridge or up to the lake in the area. Until this feature is added, I won’t be satisfied with the app.

    Disappointed. This was the first time using this app. About a week I spent time doing the research, downloadED different versions of the map so I could use it off line. I get to my hike destination, no downloaded maps. The app wouldn't even load for me to try and get a fraction of an idea where to go. I had purchased the premium just so I could download the maps. I'm extremely pissed. I should be able to rely on a product. Thank God I had my Onx-Offroad app and was able to track going in and out

  • Buyer Beware Jul 24, 2019

    By emilypcut17
    I bought this app a couple of days ago and tried to use it for a backpacking trip in a nearby national forest. Firstly, the app’s maps didn’t match the park’s trail maps AT ALL, so I decided to take both with me of course. As I went on, it seemed like the AllTrails version was just random gps points that had been made up. We were somewhat in the general area but absolutely could not have used it to find our way anywhere out there. I tried it again on another trail when we got back just to see and it wasn’t accurate either! Most of them have been, but if even some of them aren’t, then I cannot trust it. I planned to use this product for multi-day trips but it seems super unsafe now. The worst part is, when I went to request a refund for the above reasons, I got immediate denied (without anyone even looking into my claim) and it’s near impossible to get ahold of anyone at AllTrails. So, that’s $60 that I’ll never see again for a product that I’ll certainly never use. I do not recommend this product! The free version for simple day hikes was great. But if you want it for anything more in depth, this is not the right app for you!
