Perfect hiking companion!

The Rouge app is such an amazing app for Canada’s first national urban park. It is honestly the perfect hiking companion because it shows me where the trails are and where I am in the Rouge. The info notifications are a cool feature too!

Never worked on my iPhone

First time went to park and this app did not download any data on mobile data (which I have); so guide was blank and map didn’t show any trails. Second time I downloaded on wifi but still map doesn’t show any markers and the guide is blank (just blank page)!! Useless in my case.

Absolutely Useless

Used the app today and it was hopeless. The trail I took isn’t even on the app’s map. Don't waste your bandwidth on this. Just go to The Rouge’s website. (I had to give 1 star b/c 0 stars isn’t an option.)
