Map Layers

Toggle a growing list of map layers to visualize more types of data for trip planning.

Motor Vehicle Use Map (MVUM) – The official trail data published by the US Forest Service indicating which trails are legal for motorized use. Explore forestry trails with confidence while out on your dirt bike or ATV.

USFS Trails – The US Forest Service trails are a good way to verify trails according to government official sources. This layer provides a way to verify trail names, trail reference numbers and to provide secondary trail source.

Gradient Slope – The gradient slope layer is a great layer to help visualize the difficulty of a path, and to provide a clearer view of mountain passes. As the slope colors transition from red to dark purple, the cliffs will be both impassable and most likely majestic to view while out on the trail.

4.6 Star rating in the app store!

Fantastic app. I've been riding for 15 years riding the same park the whole time and the sport became stale to me. I downloaded this app and couldn't believe how many new exciting trails there were just minutes away from me.

At last, I've found the best MTB trail map app. At every turn I expected a little message saying you can't do this or you can't do that. I've yet to be told that. And the beauty of Trailforks you can amend trails and send in reports in a 'Wiki' style, on the website.

The best trail app for finding trails, routes and knowing conditions of the trails. You don't really need anything else

An invaluable app for mountain bikers, it's been a huge help to me when exploring new MTB destinations.

Brilliant app for mountain bikers What a great platform to find and share routes, trail conditions, photos and videos. Top work Pinkbike!

LOOOVE IT!!!!!! Thanks Goodness for Trailforks! Nobody has a worse sense of direction than I do! Believe me! Since I have Trailforks I can go and explore... how wonderful. Thanks so much...
