New app for navigating Mat-Su trails
Looking for new trails in the Matanuska-Susitna Valley? There’s an app for that.
The Mat-Su Trails and Parks Foundation developed an application that provides information and GPS location for popular places people hike and horseback ride.
Executive Director Stuart Leidner said right now, they’ve uploaded 138 of the 2000+ miles the Mat-Su has to offer.
People can download maps on their phone and track their coordinates, even if they don’t have cell service.
Leidner said the trails near Palmer from Crevasse Moraine system around to Matanuska Lakes can be confusing.
“This can help you make sure you relocate yourself and get back to where you started,” Leidner explained.
The app is only available for iPhones right now but Leidner said they hope to have a platform for Android phones this summer.
It’s a free app you can download by searching for the word "outerspatial" in the App Store.
