My First Summer in the Sierra
While there is no shortage of apps that track our activities and crunch fitness data into convenient, bite-sized pie graphs, there has heretofore not been an app aimed at collecting trail "beta", and helping people slow down to experience the wilderness. The idea behind the John Muir Companion is to slow down, not speed up. With decreased budgets for National Park and National Forest services such as trial maintenance and ranger patrols, this app crowdsources trail maintenance to its users in hopes of providing better backcountry experiences for everyone. Stay in touch with detailed offline maps featuring GLONASS satellite technology, helping you stay safe and keeping your loved ones informed of your whereabouts. Plan your routes from a Pacific Crest Trail thru-hike to a day trip out to Cloud's Rest. This app is designed to help you experience the wilderness John Muir himself would approve of!
