Arkansas Hiker is a detailed, map-based smartphone guide to Arkansas' best trails. The app currently includes the Ouachita National Recreation Trail and the Pinnacle Mountain State Park trail system. Other trails and trail systems will be added over time.
After the initial setup the app is fully functional without an internet connection: NO MOBILE OR INTERNET CONNECTION REQUIRED because the app uses your device's GPS and offline topo maps.
The free demo covers the Pinnacle Mountain State Park trail system, along with 20 miles of the eastern end of the Ouachita Trail. The entire 223-mile Ouachita Trail is included as an in-app purchases.
Your in-app purchase of the Ouachita Trail includes the entire trail from from Talimena State Park in Oklahoma to Pinnacle Mountain State Park near Little Rock. There are over 410 waypoints and 460+ photos of the waypoints. Each waypoint has a detail page, providing further information.
An elevation profile shows path distance vs elevation and plots your current location. Each waypoint is plotted on the profile. Each waypoints is clickable, opening to the waypoint's detail page.
A guidebook lists every waypoint in order by distance along the trail and displays your current distance from each waypoint.
The types of waypoints include:
-->Water sources (including the reliability of each water source)
-->Tenting sites/camping sites
-->Trailheads and parking areas along the trail
-->State and Federal campgrounds
-->Roads crossings, railroad tracks, power lines
-->Natural landmarks (e.g. views, ponds)
Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
