This app is not intended to be used alone, but rather as a GPS companion to FunTreks 4x4 guidebooks. It contains over 600 of the most popular trails in selected areas of Colorado, California, Arizona and Moab, Utah. These amazing places are the last vestiges in America where 4-wheeling and backcountry exploration reign supreme.
FunTreks is a small company in Colorado that has been publishing top-selling off-road guidebooks for more than 20 years. The app provides GPS track logs and waypoints that exactly match the trails in their books.
All trails have been driven, documented and GPS tracked by FunTreks scouts. The app includes trail descriptions, difficulty ratings, directions to the start, length of the trail, driving times, highest elevation, contact information, and best times to go.

Works great just wish the maps worked better off line ..
Book is Better
*Recommend book AND app*
I already have a book so I thought the app would be great in order for me to keep my eyes on the trail. Great in theory buy not in practice.
While this app will get you to the trail head, or the end, you won't get much out of it after that other than a pink line showing the suggested route. Directions to the trailhead use Apple maps so if you have Apple Carplay and want to see it on the bigger screen it's great. But now that you are there you have to use the apps map to see the highlighted pink route... which isn't projected on the head unit cause Carplay doesn't work with 3rd party apps. Even if you install the specific trail map to your device, get to the trailhead, then decide to have the app route you to the end of the trail using the default Apple Maps it won't work cause you probably have no service.
I found myself still using the book and glancing down every once in awhile to make sure I was on the right path but the book is written so well you don't need the app. This is not a $60 app IMO since it doesn't replace the book but is a minor supplementation to it. Make it $20 and it's easier to justify but you can get to the trailhead using the GPS coordinates in the book and download offline maps using Google.
Without turn by turn directions and Apple's inability to display 3rd party apps as of writing this there's not much to see here.
Developer Response ,
Thank you MDK210 for taking time to review our app. We've taken your comments into consideration and have refined the app description to make it clearer how the app works. The purpose of the app was to consolidate all of our GPS trail data into one handy device that people already own, thus eliminating the need to buy a regular GPS unit.

Best off-road App I've used
I moved to northern Colorado 3 years ago with the intent to explore as much of this beautiful state as possible. I had no idea about the hundreds of off-road trails in this state until I bought the FunTreks guide book at a local 4x4 shop. I hit every trail possible. It wasn't until I went to Moab and forgot to pickup a trail guide that I realized FunTreks had an App. I bought the app and downloaded all the trails I wanted to hit while in Moab. Love this App. It works hand in hand with my guidebook and makes me feel at ease knowing the app works with my GPS when I'm out of service. Great job guys. Can't wait to see what's next.
