Description

For those who love the great outdoors and want to explore Grand Teton National Park, this application is for you. It provides easy-to-use day hike information for more than 40 hikes in the park. It includes hikes from the classic Hidden Falls to the beautiful Grand View Point. The many detailed hiking maps can be panned and zoomed to make them easier to review. Features for each hike: -trailhead information -hiking distance -elevation change -trail difficulty -trail rating -trail description -trail map -vertical profile (strenuous hikes) The app also includes climate and weather information, so you can plan your adventure for the right time of year. All this information is contained within the app. The only data that is obtained via the internet is the radar, weather forecast, and one map - the “Trailhead Locations” map because it uses a satellite base map. Even if you aren't heading to Grand Teton in the next few days, using this app allows you to dream of the day when you get a chance to see the incredible mountains and lakes in the park.

    I live in Jackson--only a few miles away--and wanted an on the go resource for spontaneous hikes into the park. While this doesn't replace a trail book whatsoever, it's a nice start. At first glance trail descriptions appear to be accurate. User-interface while reading the trail descriptions isn't very aesthetically pleasing an option to make the scrolling portion full screen would save my eyes a lot of straining. App occasionally crashes if you touch the screen while a map is loading. The radar is our of riverton or IF, idaho and is slow to load. This may be the closest available...but it doesn't provide much information. Also, i'm not sure where the information on the weather table page was obtained from, but at 9500ft where the snotel readings are taken from...these mountains had over 400" of snow from october to april And this was a horrible winter. This chart is misleading, at the very least. The Button to quickly jump from trail description to map is a great--if not entirely redeeming--feature. Some pictures and at the very least--clickable phone numbers to park info and ranger stations would be nice. All said and done, worth the two bucks. I hope to see this app receive some minor tweaks...then be well in it's way to 4 or 5 stars.
