Hiking Rocky Mountain National Park
By TUA Outdoors, LLC
Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
For those that love the great outdoors and dream of hiking in Rocky Mountain National Park, this application is for you. It provides easy-to-use day hike information for 60 day hikes in the park.
The many detailed hiking maps and vertical profiles can be panned and zoomed to make it easy to route your trek.
Features for each hike:
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 “Trailhead Locations” map because it uses a satellite base map.
Even if you aren't headed to the Rockies in the next few days, using this app allows you to picture the day when you get a chance to gaze up at the snow covered peaks of the park or dip your toes in a cold mountain lake.
What's New in Version 8.0
- Redesigned the interface and navigation
This app was my "go to" resource for planning in advance for a hiking trip to RMNP we took this summer. What a wealth of information literally at your fingertips, from the trail elevation profiles, trail maps and trailhead locations to weather, climate, and sunrise/sunset times! The trail descriptions were not overly verbose, but that can be easily supplemented from other sources. You can use this app to get the lay of the land, choose the best time of year to go, and even decide what time to start your hikes in the mornings. We even once consulted a trail elevation profile in the app while on the trail and it helped us confirm we hadn't gotten off track. They also have an app for the Smoky Mountains which I'm using to plan a trip we are taking later this month.
