“Where have you been!”

Just downloaded it and was scrolling through the apps. Very nice.

But to my subject line. You should have a “check in”.. the “been there, done that” view. Nice that you have the favorites but tracking and “checking in” would be great.

Also, might have users submit more local suggestions that you can review for accuracy. Did a hike south of Albany the other day. Small preserve with about 5-7 miles of trails but super remote.( Keleher Preserve). If I was In the area and search for beginner/intermediate hikes, would be a great local resource.

I realize that’s a some overlap with other hiking apps but still would be useful.

Otherwise, looks like a very good start.

Where are the Catskill parks?

Beautiful app... but the Catskills are not included in the filter feature of the search.

The App Wallet section is pointless!

Drove an hour to one of the locations with my wife, 1yr old, and Husky and the park ranger would not except my empire pass thru this app. He said they need the card in person. So we left and drove an hour home. I immediately deleted the app because the main purpose for the app for me was so I don’t have to carry the card in my wallet.

FYI- Keep the Empire pass in your actual wallet. I hope this does not happen to anyone else
