6. trailforks

The Trailforks app offers the largest database of mountain bike trails in the world... right at your fingertips. The best part is once you download a region, you can access all the trailforks data offline, so when you're riding in the back country or out of cell range, you can still plan your route. The app displays trail difficulty, elevation, ridelogs and trail conditions, and depends on riders (like you and me!) to submit relevant data and updates. It's a must-have app!
