Getting outside and enjoying nature has always been one of my favorite things to do. Whether it's relaxing at the beach listening to the waves crash, walking on a trail through a forest listening to birds chirp or any of the other countless ways to enjoy nature - I love it!
Unfortunately it can be time consuming to track down the right trail or other outdoor adventure so the Sierra Club is now offering a FREE app on the iTunes store called Trail Explorer. It's free and easy to find (type Sierra Club in the search bar and it should be one of the first two to come up). There are over 40,000 trails listed.
Allow it to use your current location and it will tell you how far you are from it, the types of recreation allowed, whether dogs are allowed, the features, popularity and other key information (like distances!).
I've been playing around with it and honestly think this is one of the coolest apps for outdoor adventures I have ever seen!
It will even track you by GPS and show you the distance you have traveled and where you are.
