The mobile streetmaps are for you! All the map data is loaded on your phone before you leave your home, so can you be on the streets, offline, and still know everything about the area you are in, and locate yourself or any street in the city. You don't need any network connection at all once the application is installed on your phone – no WiFi, no 3G, no GPRS!
This is a complete street level map for your phone. The entire map is stored on your phone, so it works where you have no access to the Internet - it works where Google Maps is inaccessible. This prevents expensive data roaming charges by loading all the map data to your phone before you leave home. You can turn off all network functions and still be able to find your way around. Lets you find all streets, and many useful locations such as ATM's, parkings, museums, and many others.

The app includes four different video tours and interpretive walks:
• Appalachian Trail – Hike a one-mile section of this epic footpath that stretches 2,175 miles from Georgia to Maine. Learn about the history of the trail and Shenandoah, and meet a “thru-hiker” on his way to Maine.
• Dark Hollow Falls – Hike down a beautiful canyon to Shenandoah’s most popular waterfall. Discover where this tumbling cascade begins and where it’s headed!
• Hawksbill – See the dramatic 360 degree view from Shenandoah’s highest peak. This tour helps visitors understand how these peaks formed and what impacts the view.
• Big Meadows – Discover an open meadow that is full of history and unique flora and fauna. From Native Americans and early settlers to the park dedication by President Franklin Roosevelt in 1936 and a WWII training camp for soldiers, this meadow is much more than an open space in the forest.
Each tour includes professional ranger-led videos and historical photography, allowing you to enjoy the scenery at your own pace as you learn about this beautiful park. Videos trigger automatically using GPS as you approach tour stops, keeping you on track.
For optimum viewing at Shenandoah National Park without cellular connectivity, launch the app and choose to download the tour(s) to your phone. Streaming options are also available.
The Shenandoah National Park video tours were created through a partnership between Shenandoah National Park Association, Shenandoah National Park, Shenandoah National Park Trust, and BarZ Adventures.
