Transit & Trails: Find, Plan and Share Transit-Accessible Hiking Trails and Outdoor Recreation

By Bay Area Open Space Councilreleased on:2011-01-28T01:14:11Z

Transit & Trail is the best way to reach your favorite hikes and campgrounds without having to drive.

The common assumption is that if you don't have a car, or simply don't want to drive, you can't reach parks and hiking in your area. We happen to disagree. There are a surprising number of transit options serving our country's park systems, and the Transit & Trails iOS app allows you to take full advantage of this public resource.

Transit & Trails help you locate nearby outdoor attractions including trailheads, campgrounds, and pre-set trips. Once you've found a hike or campground you want to check out, use the app to plan a trip via public transit, all on your mobile device. Consider some of the many advantages:

Reduced carbon footprint
One way trips - no out and backs
No bridge tolls
No parking tickets
Save $$, Avoid rising gas prices
Great views while on transit

Have a favorite trailhead that's not in our system? The T&T iOS app makes it easy to add locations to our database. Simply drop a pin where the trail starts or ends, fill out a few fields, add photos if you like, and we'll add it to the map!

We are always working hard on upgrades including bringing in transit stops with scheduled and real time information.

Have a great idea for how we can improve T&T? Send your thoughts to Your input contributes to our development, helping make Transit & Trails the best app for car-free outdoor adventure.

Hiking With My Brother -- free app

By Martian Technologyreleased on:2010-08-16T11:41:57Z

Born and raised in the Pacific Northwest, our enthusiasm for the outdoors was cultivated at a young age by trips to the Columbia River Gorge, Bend, Mt. Rainer, St. Helens, etc. After college we sought out a new challenge and decided to tackle Mt. Rainer. After months of training we'd reached our goal and attained Columbia Crest on September 7th, 2008.

In the weeks that followed we resolved to keep up our training regimen of weekly hikes to stay in shape. Idle trail talk led us to set a goal for ourselves: explore all the hikes in Harvey Manning and Ira Spring's 55 Hikes around Snoqualmie Pass. Before long, we decided it would be fun to track our progress, and was born.

The website has improved a great deal over the years. Our trip reports focus on recommending hikes we like, detailing the pitfalls, capturing the essence of the hike in pictures, and striving to give a little extra background to the hikes we do. We've moved beyond the confines of Snoqualmie Pass, while still working toward our original goal. Along the way we've met a lot of hikers and outdoor lovers, as well as partnering with,, and Today we continue to hike almost every week, but we no longer do it simply for the exercise, we also do it for everyone that follows and enjoys up-to-date trail reports, out of the way destinations, and adventuresome hikes.

We hope you like what we've put together for you here at and use us as a resource in the future. Please feel free to drop us a line at
