For those that love the great outdoors and dream of hiking in Yosemite National Park, this application is for you. It provides easy-to-use day hike information for more than 50 day hikes in the park.
The many detailed hiking maps can be panned and zoomed to make it easy to route your trek.
Features for each hike:
-vertical profiles for the strenuous hikes
The app also includes climate and weather information, so you can plan your adventure for the right time of year.
All this information is contained within the app. The only data that is obtained via the internet is the radar, weather forecast, and one map - the satellite base for the “Trailhead Locations” map.
Even if you aren't heading to Yosemite in the next few days, using this app allows you to envision the day when you get a chance to look out from Glacier Point to Half Dome or hike up to the tallest waterfall in the North America, Yosemite Fall.
This is not a GPS app.
- Updated the weather information
- Added map outline to the Trailhead Locations
Ratings and Reviews
Well put together
I was invited to go on a hiking trip to Yosemite in late July 2010, so I did some research. I like this app for its organization of the hikes. It's easy to find your hike, and they are coded easy, moderate or strenuous. The maps are excellent and appear accurate. The fact you can pan and zoom is great too.
No negatives at this time.
I really like this app. There is lots of information regarding hikes and how difficult they are and the maps are really well done. It's like having a park ranger with you through out the hike!
Good for what it is
This app is not for the serious hiker. I was hoping it would be more expansive with more trails. Also, the trail maps are not very detailed. The other features are usefully and the app works well. This would be a good app for the less adventurous hiker.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
