    Trail info Ap

    Heading to Moab in a couple of weeks and wanted to know if people thought trailforks or mtbproject had better info about the local trails. We have been a few times before so know our way around but never used any of these apps for trail info and mapping. Thanks for any help!

    trail forks has more trails IMO but MTBproject is easier to follow, I keep both on my phone.

    Yeah, keep both because neither one is probably going to have all the trails you want to ride.

    Same here, I use both pretty much every time I ride an unfamiliar location.

    I would get a physical map. The company latitude 40 makes great maps of the area. Having a bunch of sweaty guys huddling around an iPhone isn't sexy

    There's also a moab specific app called Moab trails for $1.99. Clear and clean, very thorough.

    Not an application, but Utah Mountain Biking is a good source:

    Utah Mountain Biking - Trails, Information, Repairs

    There are maps, directions, photos, detailed write-ups of each trail, and GPS tracks you can download into Google Earth or other apps.

    For the actual rides, we bring a physical map in an orienteering map case (clear plastic waterproof bag you hang around your neck). It's nice being able to see a large view of the whole trail at a glance, not having to worry about technical issues with a cell phone or GPS, and not struggling to see a screen in the bright sun. It weighs about the same as an electronic device. The downsides are it can be annoying dangling around your neck and you have to be able to read the terrain to know where you are on the map, but in Moab, way-finding is relatively easy.

    Not exactly the answer you were looking for, but I hope it helps.
