About this app

Explore 4,000+ hikes with Washington state’s most trusted app. Get the latest trail conditions using our trip reports. Check for fires, air quality and snow levels with our map layers, and find good trails for hiking with kids, dogs, or wheelchairs with our search filters. Save the hikes you find to your account to access information offline.

We offer verified driving directions to trailheads and important info about required passes, permits and closure alerts, as well as personalized recommendations of hikes based on what you like. You can also post trip reports from your own hikes to track where you’ve been and help other hikers know what to expect.

- Trailhead weather forecasts from NOAA help you know what the weather’s like on trail.
- See what on-trail conditions are like using snow, fire, and air quality layers on our maps.
- Red alerts highlight trail or road closures so you know about them before you get to the trailhead.
- Check trip reports to see current road and trail conditions and seasonal features like ripe berries or fall foliage.

- Customize your search with filters for length, elevation gain, passes and what features you want to see on trail (waterfalls, rivers, great views, etc.).
- Use our kid-, dog- and wheelchair-friendly filters to find appropriate trails.
- Find hikes near you using your phone’s location or use WTA’s Hike Finder Map or region filters.
- Find hikes based on pass and permit requirements.
- Difficulty ratings help you decide if a hike is right for you.

Creating an account with WTA lets you save hike information for later, and access it offline, including the driving directions to the trailhead and detailed trail descriptions. You can also get personalized hike recommendations in your account based on where you like to hike. Plus, when you have an account, you can:
- Post your own trip reports and share the pictures you took on trail
- Like or comment on other users trip reports
- Sync your app activity with the web version of wta.org, where you can mark hikes as done and access our hike recommender. The more hikes you save and trip reports you write, the better the recommendations you get.

This app motivates me to get out onto new trails. I love supporting WTA. I do wish I could keep track of my completed hikes and/or reports, I don't see that as an option. Also it took me some time to learn how the search feature works. You have to sometimes try different search terms to find exactly what you're looking for, otherwise it will indicate no results for a trail that's actually in here under a different name.

Hey Emily -- Thank you so much for your support and your review. It's great to hear about the added functionality you'd like to see. We're working on some improvements to the hike search right now; keep an eye out for our next release!

This app is so awesome!! It helps me search for a hike based on my needs--shorter, longer, less or more incline, distance from home. I also love that I can save hikes into my "backpack." It's sort of like making a wish list, and I tend to hike more because I want to check off the list! Also, it shows the most recent trip reports which is so helpful for finding out about things like snow levels, road conditions, water options, bugs and bear reports.
