You can find the best hiking trails with AllTrails! This app is the hiker’s friend! So –  I stumbled on this great app for hiking that I never knew existed. Then, I found it also has a corresponding website HERE . It came in extremely useful on our recent vacation, so I wanted to share with you! I just used it to find some great trails to hike in Colorado, like the trail above in Rocky Mountain National Park. The photos in this post were just a few of many I got to take along the trails. If you are a fan of hiking and the great outdoors you will love it. It comes in both iPhone and Android versions. Just so you know – I get no benefit for telling you about this. Just want to share a great tip for an app!  [Read more…]
