New app for trail enthusiasts

MASON CITY, Ia – If you like to get outside and explore new trails, there is a new app for you!

It’s called “Iowa by Trail.”

The Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation put the app out yesterday. It’s an interactive map allowing users to locate their position and find the closest trail, point of interest and even communicate with other trail go-ers.

One trail enthusiast says this would have came in handy when she and her husband got lost on an unfamiliar trail.

“That would have been very helpful to have some sort of guide on your phone that could you know tell you which direction to go and to get out of there,” says Diane Cooper.

The app also helps keep track of distance, weather, news and events.
