Explore the Great Outdoors with the City of Encinitas’ New App - UPDATED

DISCLAIMER: THE EASY2HIKE APPLICATION HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED BY ITS DEVELOPERS - THE CITY OF ENCINITAS LOOKS FORWARD TO LAUNCHING A NEW MOBILE TRAILS APP IN LATE 2021

Encinitas, CA – The Encinitas City Council’s vision for a more active and mobile community took shape this week with the launch of a new trails application (app) by the City’s Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts Department. The Easy2Hike app makes it easier to get information on hiking, biking and riding trails, as well as find information about Encinitas’ amazing parks, beaches and viewpoints.  The free app also allows users to locate and view trailheads, park maps and points of interest in Encinitas. 

Easy2Hike shares recommended routes near you, providing essential information like park names, addresses, phone numbers, pictures, videos (where applicable), facility amenity lists, and detailed descriptions to help you better prepare for your park visit or trail experience.  It helps ensure that hikers, equestrian riders, and mountain bikers stay on safe and designated paths.  Maps are also downloadable for offline access in areas with spotty cellular coverage.

“We know that many of our park and trail visitors will love to have access to accurate information on their smartphones.  Easy2Hike puts a wealth of information and the tools to explore Encinitas’ many incredible places, literally in the palm of your hand. Think of it as your digital visitor center for parks, beaches and trails in Encinitas,” said Nick Buck, Special Events and Projects Supervisor. 

With Easy2Hike, city staff members are able to control accurate content, including real-time trail map data, beautiful pictures and descriptions of each point of interest.  Cool features of the app include the ability to push out notifications to users who reach areas that are closed for maintenance.  Users can also report obstacles, damaged facilities, wildlife sightings or any user issues with a map directly to staff through the app. All user data is anonymous for individual privacy. 

The City’s new app currently features 31 points of interest including favorites like Moonlight Beach, Encinitas Ranch area trails and Encinitas Community Park, as well as many other parks, beach accesses, trails and viewpoints to explore!
