When you track your activity out on the trail using the AllTrails app, our system automatically checks your activity against our database of 300,000+ hand-curated trail guides. When your traveled route overlaps with at least 75% of one of our trails, you’ll earn a purple Verified Completed badge for that trail. Your personal Completed and Verified Completed badges can be found on any trail result-card in the Explore, Favorites, Lists, and Completed screens.
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. Files that are uploaded to AllTrails.com will not qualify for a Verified Completed badge.
NOTE: It will take approximately 24-hours after saving your AllTrails activity for any applicable Verified Completed badges to be applied in your Completed list. You may see that the trail you recorded initially shows only green Completed badge, but it should change to Verified the following day.
