I wish the search feature was more user-friendly. It won't let me search a specific area on a map for trails. Always comes up with trails near me. If I want to find a specific trail in another area, this app is tiring. I can type the name and location of a trail in the search feature, and nothing comes up. I don't change any of the other filters , so it is a broader search. Too many times when I search this way, no results come back. Very frustrating

Terrible app compared to the website. On the map view it plasters the screen with giant cards that tell you no useful information. You can remove them, but unlike the website the map doesn't show any of the trails, just little icons. In order to actually see a trail, you have to click thru several slow menus just to see the trail is tiny or uninteresting.

Love it. I use it weekly at least, and it is great. I love the reviews of each trail and search for information about how much shade they have! Also, details about the parking situation, trail surface, etc. I do wish there were more pictures. Personally, I can't figure out how to give the app enough permissions to add photos. I allowed access to my camera and photos but I still get a pop up telling me that I need to do so. Glitch?

Hi Serina, thank you for the positive feedback! We really appreciate it! We are working on adding more photos and would appreciate if you continue to upload beautiful trail photos to TrailLink. We wanted to let you know that we resolved the photo permissions issue in the new build that was released this week, so please update the TrailLink app!
