New Trail App for the Mat~Su!

Where to NextPalmer, AK – Ever get the itch to go explore a new trail you haven’t before? Well just time for the Memorial Day weekend, we are launching a new on-line interactive map and mobile trail map application so you can get a head start on planning your next trip. This pilot project highlights some of the most popular trails here in Mat Su. With just over 100 miles of trails uploaded to start we think you will find this to be a useful tool. Unlike some of the other trail map apps out on the market, ours is not focused on one mode of travel. Our goal is to have all of the legal trails that exist in the Mat Su Borough loaded up in the next year. So whether you are out in your side by side, hiking with the family, or hopping on your bike you should find a trail that meets your needs.

Currently the mobile app is only available for those with an iOS phone. Android users don’t despair!

The app should be rolling out this summer on the Android platform as well. But don’t let that stop you. Get to know the online interactive map version too! You can always go to our website HERE and get started!

Apple users, download the OuterSpatial app on all Apple iOS devices from your Apple Store and you are ready to go!

Once you have it downloaded, regardless of whether you have a cell signal or not the app is there for you! Start exploring! You can tap on a specific trail or trailhead to get more information on that trail and directions to the trailhead. You can select from several different types of basemaps. Once you have used the app, we would love your feedback!
