LA County Trails APPAs part of the County of Los Angeles (County) Trails Day proclamation, the Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR) expands user access to the County Trails System by unveiling the mobile app, Trails LA County, and upgraded trails.lacounty.gov.

The website and new mobile application will provide opportunities to educate and engage the public on the value and importance of stewardship, conservation, and habitat restoration of our open space.

The new mobile app provides an ‘on-the-go’ experience, while the website’s enhanced functionalities are intended to be the ‘go-to’ online resource for residents and visitors to find authorized trail information throughout the County. Both offer digital tools, including real-time alerts, maps, weather, trail length, elevation, difficulty level, rest stops, picnic locations, and much more. A dynamic feature for both platforms will be the simple functionality of posting feedback online and on the app. Users will be able to grade their experience, share pictures of scenic vista spot and tag their photos to #TrailsLACounty and/or #TakeAHike.

Third District Supervisor Sheila Kuehl secured resources to make significant upgrades to the website and create the application. Fifth District Supervisor Kathryn Barger provided the funding for the original website. The enhanced trails.lacounty.gov and the new Trails LA County mobile app showcase over 550 miles of trails, including County trails and trails from five partner agencies (California State Parks, U.S. National Park Service, Mountains Recreation Conservation Authority, Mountains Restoration Trust and the Catalina Island Conservancy), with the ultimate goal to include all official trails in the County, regardless of jurisdiction.

“The new Trails LA County app is a boon to all trail users, from the first-time trailblazer to the avid hiker,” said Third District Supervisor Sheila Kuehl. “I’m proud to support this wonderful online resource that will inspire people to explore new hikes in the County’s extensive trail system.”

Established in 1993, National Trails Day is an annual event held every June, to highlight and celebrate America’s trails. The Board of Supervisors of the County of Los Angeles will proclaim June 1, 2019, to be National Trails Day.

“We encourage all County residents to visit trails.lacounty.gov to learn about trails, stewardship, and participate in National Trails Day on June 1,” stated Fifth District Supervisor Kathryn Barger. “This is another example of how technology continues to develop services for LA County residents.”

National Trails Day events will be held at various locations throughout the County, and DPR staff will be lending a hand at different events on that day. There are several opportunities to participate in National Trails Day throughout the County from the San Gabriel Mountains to the Palos Verdes Peninsula, and the Baldwin Hills and Santa Monica Mountains. Further details can be found at trails.lacounty.gov or on the Trails LA County mobile app.

“We thank Supervisor Kuehl for her funding support. The new Trails LA County mobile app and revamped trails website demonstrate how world-class technology is changing the way we enjoy the great outdoors,” said John Wicker, Director of the Department of Parks and Recreation. “We commend Supervisor Barger and Supervisor Kuehl for co-sponsoring Trails Day that promotes healthy outdoor activities for all in LA County.”

Los Angeles County (County) is estimated to have over 2,000 miles of riding, hiking and biking trails throughout the County. From that, DPR operates and maintains more than 200 miles of regional multi-use trails countywide and is working on expanding the network of trails regionally.

    There’s a website listed, trails.lacounty.gov, but this story is about a mobile app and there is no information or name for the app, nor whether or not is is IOS, Android, or both.

    Is the app named “Trails LA County”? It’s not in caps nor quotation marks in the story, so this is a bit confusing.
