What users need to know, when they need to know it.
Has a fire closed the trail? Is the air quality poor? Mother Nature has a way of stepping in, and when she does, we let users know. TREAD Map gives land managers the control to manage customized filters to push out alerts and update on-the-trail conditions, making sure users are never caught off guard.
These views are great.
TREAD Map gives land managers the power to customize the user view based on selected filters. For example, if there’s a fire, you have the power to chart its perimeter here. It’s the best way to help users know before they go.
Control the message.
Our user-friendly control panel allows land managers to open, close, and update information on trails in real-time.
Just a click away.

It takes a village.
We realize that to provide the most comprehensive, hyper-local trail app possible, it takes the talent and expertise of a large, diverse group of participating organizations. We support the partners that make TREAD Map possible by providing a simple and efficient way for these fantastic organizations to promote events, communicate to a targeted audience, and drive membership.
Share what your area has to offer with timely posts, 'Top 10' lists, or suggested itineraries. Controls are at your finger tips!
Your own app.
It's difficult for outdoor recreation organizatons to maintain their own app. This is where TREAD Map can help. Provide users a QR code to automatically install your custom themes and branding in TREAD Map. It's your own app within the app! Serve your existing base while reaching the entire TREAD Map community with your messaging.
Leave a trace.
TREAD Map was built for trail users who love the trails for all the same reasons you do. To share the love, a portion of all revenue is donated back to the local community to conserve, enhance, and build trails. It’s our way of being more than a trail guide.
There is a shared cost and responsibility for each partnering county in Washington to make the app available and effective for users. Every trail and outdoor experience will need to be added and maintained, and land managers need to be trained on how to communicate with users on the app. For TREAD to begin work in a county, please fill out the form to discuss the requirements.
