Our Vision

In creating the Afield Trails app, we are trying to bring a national park’s stories to life at the most memorable moment: when you experience them. Our dynamic app is responsive to a user’s location and uniquely tailored to the specific place in which they stand at any given moment. We have also bundled together hiking tools to help visitors stay oriented and better anticipate conditions on the trail to help make their visit both informative and safe. We believe that’s what a modern hiking and interpretive app should feel like, and that’s what we’re building.

But the best thing about our apps? They work entirely offline—no cell signal or pre-trip syncing required.
