With AllTrails Pro, you can create your own custom map routes in seconds using our mapping tool, QuickDraw.
Create your own custom map from scratch or save any map in the AllTrails database and customize it for your next adventure. These maps automatically sync with your iPhone or Android app so you can take your maps anywhere! You also have the ability to print these custom maps, share them with your friends, and download the GPX files to use on your own GPS device.
You can access QuickDraw by following these steps:
Via desktop or laptop computer:
- Log on to your account on https://www.alltrails.com
- Hover over 'Plan' in the header and click on 'Maps'
- Click on 'New Map' or select an existing saved 'Map' to edit
Below is a quick overview of the QuickDraw functionality.
To create a new route, click on 'Draw Route' or 'Upload GPX'. Here are some additional tricks with Routes:
- Select a color, click on a starting point, and click along to draw your route
- Clicking on the dotted line segments will auto-route that segment
- For partial segments, hold the 'shift key' and drag to draw
- To create an out-and-back trail click on the blue 'Out & Back' button under the color options
- To reverse the locations of the green start and black end markers, click 'Reverse'
- To finish your route, click 'Save'
With QuickDraw you can create multiple routes on the same map using the various color options. Just save your first route and then click 'Draw Route' again to add another.
Provide a brief description to easily remember what the route covers and why you created it. This may be useful to people who you share the map with.
Create a title and description for your waypoints in the edit column. Position your waypoint along the route by clicking on the waypoint and dragging it to the desired location. To always show the title of the waypoint on the map view, click the 'Show Title' box in the edit column.
Upload photos directly from your computer or drag photos into the box provided. Photos of the trail terrain, landscape, and views are helpful to give users an idea of trail conditions and obstacles.
Any new map you create will have a search box to help you center the map on a specific location. Coordinates should be entered in decimal degrees format (ex: 12.345, -123.456). Once you draw a route on your map, this option will be removed.
Use the icons in the bottom right corner of the map screen to toggle between various map layers and overlays for the area. Use the '+' and '-' zoom controls in the top right corner of the map screen to zoom in and out of the map.
Drag your mouse along the elevation profile graph at the bottom of the map screen for each of your routes to see the corresponding point on the map.
