The California State Park Foundation, in partnership with EveryTrail has created a free iPhone app with detailed information and trail guides for more that 45 of California’s most popular state parks. Combined, these parks draw tens of millions of visitors every year.
I was honored to be one of a dozen EveryTrail members asked to help put together a few of the guides, including Crystal Cove State Park, Huntington State Beach, Doheny State Beach, San Onofre State Beach, and South Carlsbad State Beach. Do you see a theme here? After spending much of 2010 tackling increasingly tougher trails, I thought I’d balance things out with some easier ones.
The great thing about the app? It gives you detailed info on each of the parks, with guides to some of the best hikes, walks and other activities. It also lets you see hikes shared by others from the EveryTrail community, as well as track and share your own hike! And then of course, there’s the price — free! Definitely worth a download.
