Trailguru

Just before the end of our hike, I remembered that I had installed Trailguru on my iPhone, so I started it up and recorded the last 1/2 mile of the trip. Trailguru uses the iPhone’s builtin GPS to track your hike, including distance, speed, elevation changes, etc. I’ll post more on it later, but it seemed to track pretty well even with the phone in my pocket. It allows you to take pictures from within the application and then posts the info about your hike and the photos to the Trailguru website. This makes it harder to get the pictures onto this blog (since I’m puttting the posts together from my iPhone).

I’ll have to remember to record the next hike and post my feedback.

Just west of town is an area off the road where you can park and go up a pretty steep hill to where an old railroad bed was constructed for the Midland Railroad. The hike is relatively short (about 2 miles out and back), but there are 5 tunnels to walk through so it’s kind of interesting.
