Santa Barbara is a captivating, inviting community that is located in a beautiful, natural setting along California’s Pacific coast. The temperate climate and refreshing ocean breezes, very similar to the Mediterranean, have distinguished this area as “the jewel of the American Riviera.”
This version of Day Hikes fixes an issue I was having with the display of the detailed hike maps.
Ratings and Reviews
No GPS Guidance
This is essentially a book. It is ok if you want a book. I wanted GPS guidance hiking APP. This ain't it!
Developer Response ,
This is true. This is not a GPS enabled hiking APP. However you can use the app to get turn by turn directions to the trail head.
Great Hiking Guide
What a great app! I always used a hiking guide book with hand-drawn maps and vague trailhead descriptions that made it sometimes difficult to get started on a hard-to-find trail. It is so nice being able to use the maps on this app to get to your trail, and stay on the right path. There is a huge assortment of trails. If I don't have time for a long hike, I like being able to quickly search for hikes that fit my available time frame. Happy hiking!
Great for families
Love that now I can find great places to go with the kids and get them out in nature away from their devices. This makes it so easy to find hikes with specifics so I know if it's the right fit for my kids that day.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
