Do you live in the Rochester or Finger Lakes region? Are you looking for the perfect trail to hike or run, or want to see what else the area parks have to offer? With #TrailsRoc Maps, you can view professional, high quality trail data on your iPhone or iPad.
#TrailsRoc, the Rochester, New York Trail Running Club, was born on an idea and a dream. “How is it possible that the Rochester and Finger Lakes Region has such world class trail running and yet…there’s no website collecting all the information in one place and promoting trail running?” trailsroc.org was created, and now we offer maps of all these great trails in the palm of your hand.
#TrailsRoc offers maps of over 200 miles of trails in the region. You can browse and navigate in real time, while enjoying the beauty of the trails without the worry of referring to that hard copy of the map.

Ratings and Reviews
Great trail info, but please bring back satellite base maps.
This app probably has the best collection trails to explore in the Rochester area! I like the standard base map in this update (version 2.0) better than the standard road map in the previous version, but I already miss the satellite view which doesn’t appear to be available after this update.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for the feedback! Satellite view is definitely in the plan, hopefully it will be available in the next update. We rebuilt the maps from scratch with version 2.0 so the satellite view is taking a little longer to finish. (UPDATE: version 2.1, released in March 2018, has new and improved satellite maps)
Love the new updates
More trails. Lots of points of interest. Search by nearby, send directions, links to the websites for more detail and a summary of the park detail. Nice work. I love it!
Create a layer in Gaia gps
It would be great to have these maps included in the many maps already available on Gaia gps. That way a layer over a rod map could be used for precise directions to parking lots or trails. An export function could be useful as welllo.

Thanks for your feedback! We are considering options for making the map data available in other formats or contributing the data back to the community, but I can't promise any specific plans at this point. Also, if by directions you mean driving directions - please take a look at improved directions functionality in the latest update to the app. If you tap on parking areas, trails, parks, and many other types of items on the map (or use the Find button to search for them), you'll see a Get Directions button that takes you straight to Apple Maps with one or more exact destinations that are relevant to your selection. From that point you can use the standard driving directions functionality in the Maps app.
