Want to keep up with the latest trail information while you’re walking Te Araroa?
The free Te Araroa – The Trail App allows you to access helpful information, official trail notes and safety alerts from your mobile phone. It also shows campsites, huts, topographical maps and information on trail elevation, even in areas with no internet access.
The app was created by software developer Landon Breidenstein after completing the trail in 2017 – something he describes as “the best thing I’ve done in my entire life.'' It offers a trail walker’s insight into what other walkers might find useful.
It’s available to download from the Google Play and Apple App stores at the links below and has been downloaded by hundreds of walkers. Of course, we know many people walk the trail to escape modern technology, so feel free to use it only as much as you want to.
