The BEST Hiking App
This app is amazing. It's incredibly easy to use and has the best interface of any trail finder app I've ever used. The best part is that you can tell that the WTA actually uses this to provide tips and really good descriptions of all trails. The users of this app are active and actually post photos and very helpful and useful trip reports. It's definitely an active base of users and I think that the maintenance and design of the app is what contributes to that. It was someone at REI that told me about this app and I am still blown away. I wish there was an app like this for every state!
Highly recommend this app
The WTA app is really easy to use and it's features are not only useful but the app is reliable. I have tried other trail apps in the past but have not been happy with any of them. I use this app to find hikes in certain locations on the map and I LOVE the hike descriptions; ratings and the trial reports. I have also used the option to pull up the trailhead on maps app which is very helpful for those of us with bad road navigation skills.
Love this app! It's really helped us find trails in the area. We are new to hiking and Washington so it's been great to reference as we look for more to do as a family. I definitely recommend it especially if you're new to hiking. My favorite part is the reviews and pictures. They help you get a better idea of the area. I also like that it helps you find the locations. Not sure if it links to maps on iPhones but that would be great if it did.
