When you track your activity out on the trail using the AllTrails app, our system automatically checks your activity against our database of 200,000+ hand-curated trail guides. When your travelled route overlaps with at least 75% of one of our trails, you’ll earn a purple Verified Completed badge for that trail. Sometimes your activity will overlap with more than one trail in our system, and in those instances you’ll earn multiple Verified Completed badges from one outing!
Trails that have been added to your Completed List but not verified will have a green Completed badge. You can earn a Verified Completed badge by saving an activity using the AllTrails app or through a sync of your Garmin account on that trail. Files that are uploaded to AllTrails.com will not qualify for a Verified Completed badge.
Both Completed and Verified Completed badges can be found on any trail result-card in the Explore, Favorites, Lists, and Completed screens.
