The CalParks mobile apps, available for iPhone and Android, marks an exciting new time for visitors who want to explore California’s many parks while also addressing some long-held frustrations. 

While there is no shortage of park information available in print or online, it can be difficult to take that information along without cumbersome workarounds such as printing, emailing web pages, and lugging paperwork. In contrast, this new app by CSPF and EveryTrail offers visitors a detailed, media-rich, interactive, and location-aware experience, complete with Guides to over 45 parks. It is light-weight and always up-to-date with the latest park information.

iPhone users can download the app in the App Store today or find it on iTunes

Android users can download the app in the Android Market


Just some of the features of the CalParks app:

  • Find parks near you, and read about their highlights and history
  • Easily find the best hikes in each park
  • Navigate hiking trails using detailed maps, descriptions points of interest, photos, and audio.
  • Share your own experience by tracking your hikes, taking pictures and uploading to EveryTrail, Facebook and Twitter
