When you track your activity out on the trail using the AllTrails app, our system automatically checks your activity against our database of 250,000+ 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.
Trails that have been added to your Completed List but not verified will have a green Completed badge. To earn a Verified Completed badge, you must track and record your activity via Navigator on the AllTrails app. Garmin-synced activities and files that are uploaded to AllTrails.com will not qualify for a Verified Completed badge.
Your personal Completed and Verified Completed badges can be found on any trail result-card in the Explore, Favorites, Lists, and Completed screens.
