Track Yourself on the Trails

Track yourself while on the trails using your smartphone. How? See below.

Before heading out on the trails, while on wifi or cellular data:

  • Verify you have the Google Maps app
  • Download an offline map of the area (Menu, Offline Maps)
  • Open the Tahoe XC Winter Trail Map on your phone from Trail Map
  • Keep the Google Maps app open with the Tahoe XC Map overlay
  • Don’t close the app!

Go out skiing, look for the blue dot. That’s you!

Once you’ve accessed the Tahoe XC map on Google Maps, it should remain in Google Maps under “Your Places, Maps” for next time.
