YOU ARE LOOKING FOR NATURE HIKES to plan with your family or friends: OpenTracks is a young community of routes sharing in French Riviera, gradually throughout France and around the world. With its free application and its integrated GPS, it will guide you on all your adventures!

JOIN THE COMMUNITY AND BECOME A TRUE TRACKER! Discover, realize and comment on the suggested routes. You can also create and share your Sunday walks, your prettiest hikes, your favorite snowshoeing or mountain bike routes, and for the most committed, your treks and trails.

OPENTRACKS IS FOR EVERYONE: beginners and enthusiasts, adults and teenagers, babies in strollers and toddlers, 4-legged friends... With its keyword search, difficulty and proximity search, find the ride or hike that suits you.

Our 1st OBJECTIVE: SIMPLIFYING YOUR LIFE to practice with others a physical activity regularly. An email sent or a group created, and presto! some companions found and an activity planned. Then, just go to the start, and follow the route using your smartphone. Car parks, viewpoints, playgrounds, picnic tables, lakes and rivers ... all shared information is located on the map. You always know where you are and what remains to be done.

Our 2nd OBJECTIVE: GIVE EVERYONE A REASON TO EXERCISE by approaching sport in a more friendly and fun way (badges and points to collect very soon).
