Trailhead

A free app from The North Face that will prove useful for bikers and hikers

Trailhead is offered free by clothing brand The North Face, but don’t let that put you off. Like Nike before it, it proves that a branded freebie can be as useful as a paid-for app. Trailhead finds user-generated routes on EveryTrail.com to offer users hikes, bike trails, and more. You can set waypoints, share routes and chart your progress via GPS.

Trailhead also enables you to listen to your iPod and take pictures in-app. Ultimately, we found numerous local trails, making this a particularly slick must-have for anyone looking to explore.

Rated 4 out of 5

Feature-packed and great for walkers, campers and bikers.
