Arizona Trail Apps

Arizona Trail App

In order to keep up with technological advances in mapping and to meet the demands of trail users who have been requesting a navigational smartphone application over the past few years, the Arizona Trail Association (ATA) is proud to announce the availability of the Arizona Trail App. It is undoubtedly the most comprehensive digital navigational resource we have ever developed and is available now through iTunes and the Google Play Store.
The app includes just about everything a trail user would ever want to know, and if you're concerned about what happens when you don't have a cell phone signal, no worries! One of the greatest features of the app is that no mobile or internet service is required to use it after the initial setup. Some of its features include:

  • GPS-enabled map of the Arizona Trail with waypoints
  • Offline topo maps, satellite imagery, and photographs
  • More than 1,100 waypoints along or near the trail
  • Detail page for each waypoint
  • Elevation profile with waypoints
  • GPS-enabled data book listing of all waypoints
  • Comprehensive water information
  • Complete gateway community and resupply information
  • Trailhead information
  • Text or email your location
There is a free demo of the app for everyone to enjoy, which includes the 36-mile San Francisco Peaks Passage of the Arizona Trail near Flagstaff. The entire 800-mile Arizona Trail App is available as an in-app purchase for only $9.99. Just click on the appropriate logo below.

Arizona Trail To Go App

Have you ever been on the Arizona Trail and come across something that you felt should be shared with other trail users . . . a fallen tree blocking the trail, a missing sign, a new water source, choice campsite, or just an amazing viewpoint? AZ Trail To Go lets you do just that. Itís an interactive tool for the Arizona Trail that lets you report any number of trail conditions which are then immediately made available to other users. Best of all, you donít need to have internet connectivity to report something. When your smartphone is out of range of your service provider, submitted items are just stored locally until you get back into civilization, at which point they are synched up with AZ Trail To Go.
