Wayfinding apps are essential resources for those seeking out less-travelled hiking trails. Founded in 2010, AllTrails is one of the premier apps that hikers use to find trailheads, navigate routes, share reviews and log their kilometres. More than 50 million people use AllTrails and the app has information on upwards of 400,000 trails throughout the world. The basic app is free, while the AllTrails+ version ($35.99 per year) unlocks many other features, such as wrong turn alerts, offline maps and 3D maps.
