It's about time to break out the hiking boots again!

Last summer I downloaded an app called All Trails. My wife and I were starting to get into walking and hiking, and I was looking for something to help us find trails. All Trails is chock-full with thousands of hiking, biking and walking trails around the world, including hundreds here in Minnesota. We used the app during our visit to Duluth/Superior last summer and had an absolute blast hiking trails around the North Shore. Later, while gyms and various facilities were closed due to COVID, we found a number of fantastic parks and trails around the Twin Cities metro and Central Minnesota to explore with our dog Rosie. Elm Creek Park Reserve in Maple Grove has become one of our local favorites for its variety of trail difficulties and terrain.

With Spring here again, it's time to dust off the hiking boots and start putting together my All Trails "wish list!" Here's everything you need to know about using the All Trails app!
