Ratings and Reviews
Epic Idea, Epic Execution
So nice to finally have a usable, interactive and actually helpful platform for plan hikes and runs. User interface designed well, could be improved in further versions. Map is a little confusing but decent once you get the hang of it, probably not up to the dev team, rather the map engine. Hike explanations and details are accurate and well done.
Overall, can’t wait for more trails to be available and to use it more!!

Thank you so much, Olly! Reviews like this mean a lot to us and push us to improve and create something great! The map platform does take a bit of getting used to but is really powerful once you've got the hang of it.
Stick with us, we've only just begun!
It will be nice to be able to log your hikes on the app. So we can keep track of which trails we have completed and achieved etc.
