Have loved this app for over a year!

I love how the gps signals your on the map regardless of having phone signal or not (as I frequently lose mine).
There’s so many maps and profiles of trails to help you understand where you’re headed to and to prepare, along with imbedded driving routes via google maps which is super convenient!

I recommend it always to friends, my ShineOnHealth Coaching clients and strangers I meet out on the trails!

Mostly a great app

We primarily use this app when running or hiking in unfamiliar terrain. It’s a great way to check location via GPS if you think you may have gotten turned around when deciding to try a new trail with poor signage or missing blazes. Also a pretty good option for looking up running options when traveling. My one beef is that some of the trails available on the website (including popular race routes) don’t show up in the app. In some cases you can even download a GPX file of the route from the desktop website, but you can’t load it into the app, and the trail/route doesn’t show up in app. Seems weird for Trail Run Project to have complete, downloadable GPX data for routes but for them not to be included for use with app.

Missing the old version a lot

I LOVED using this app in the prior version. It was the best. The new version has been disappointing to say the least. After trying to use the map to find trails in certain areas of my home state I’ve just given up - the map is touchy and the screen/trails seems to refresh every time I move the map just a little bit, and not in a good way. The old version used to very concisely list the trails in whatever part of the map you were there’s a scrolling set of trails you have to try to make your way through on an already touchy screen. Like other commenters, I’m all for improvements, but there was a ton of great functionality on the previous version that’s gone, making this app barely usable.
