Meet the ultimate GPS mapping app for your outdoor pursuits. onX Backcountry lets you easily find the trails you're looking for—whether you’re seeking out new ski lines or trails to hike. Once you make a plan, bring it all out there with you by downloading an offline map to navigate when out of cell service.
▶Discover New Adventures With Comprehensive Trail and Ski Line Information
Whether you’re looking to go for a ski tour, hike, run, mountain bike, or backpacking trip, we’ve got you covered. onX Backcountry features nationwide coverage with over 650,000 miles of trails and 4,000+ ski routes.
▶Prep Better For Your Outings With Powerful Planning Tools
We adventure in three dimensions, your planning should reflect that. With a 3D map you can visualize terrain, scout lines, and plan for hazards before you hit the trail. See recent conditions with reports from other trail users, and get winter snow info from SNOTEL stations and regional avalanche forecasts right in the app. Build custom routes seamlessly with snap-to-trail functionality, and drop Waypoints to leave notes on key points. Use Slope Angle, Slope Aspect, Trail Slope, and Wildfire Layers to plan in more granular detail.
▶Navigate Without Cell Coverage
Save Offline Maps to bring your custom maps and adventure along when you're outside cell coverage on the trail. With the onX Backcountry App, you turn your phone into a handheld GPS device using your phone's internal GPS. Navigate offline by following the blue dot to always know how to get home–wherever home is that night. Leave a breadcrumb trail with Tracker to see where you’ve been and measure your speed, distance, and elevation gain.
▶The Best Maps, Period.
With map data sourced from USFS, BLM, and NPS, our color-coded basemap helps you easily find what you’re looking for.
