The North Face are the latest to release an iPhone app, called the Trailhead the app uses your location to find hikes, bike routs and trails. There’s over 300,000 routes to search for and you can pick by the type of activity, length and location.
Once you start the route the app tracks you, thus gaining information about pace, distance traveled and elevation, all in real time. Once you have finished you then have the ability to send back to your EveryTrail.com account or share on twitter or Facebook.
There’s some branded information in there too, you can read news on the The North Face athlete team and find a local North Face dealer.
There’s plan to expand the app too with weather information, gear list (according to the trail) and challenged to unlock.
So far out of 14 reviews it’s bagged a 4.5 out of 5 star rating. Best of all it’s free to download.
