We're excited to announce that AllTrails has acquired GPSies. This opportunity makes our trail information available to an ever wider audience and benefits everyone looking for new places to explore. Together we are excited to expand our global reach and we hope you are too.
We realize you may have some questions about your previous GPSies account. Please review this FAQ and if you have additional questions you can always email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can I still access GPSies and all of my account information?
GPSies.com has officially been redirected to AllTrails and can no longer be accessed. All of your GPSies account information has been transferred into an AllTrails account.
How do I find my GPSies information on AllTrails
All of your GPSies account information has seamlessly been ported over to AllTrails.
To access your account information, log in to AllTrails using the email address and the password you use for your GPSies account.

What data will be imported into AllTrails and how do I see it?
The following GPSies account information has automatically been imported into your AllTrails account:
Your user account information including your name, email address, and location settings.
Your GPSies Groups have been imported as Lists on AllTrails. You can access your lists Under Plan>>Lists. For additional information on lists, click here.
Your GPSies Notepad tracks have been imported into Favorites on AllTrails under Plan>>Favorites.
Your GPSies My Tracks can be found under AllTrails 'Recordings' under History>>Recordings or in your AllTrails 'Maps' under Plan>>Maps. Any tracks created on the GPSies website or those that do not have time data associated with them can be found under your AllTrails 'Maps'. All other tracks that were created by a GPS device can be found under your AllTrails 'Recordings.' All photos associated with these tracks have been imported accordingly.
Your GPSies 'My Tracks' that have time data have been imported as public AllTrails recordings unless you have marked your tracks as private on your GPSies account. If they were set to private they will also be private on AllTrails and will only be visible to you. You can always change these recordings to be public if you would like to share them with other AllTrails users, and your friends or family.
If you wish to make your recordings private, you can do so by following these the steps here.

How do I download my tracks from AllTrails?

How do I find tracks from GPSies?
All public tracks previously on GPSies have now been migrated to AllTrails.
AllTrails has over 100k hand-curated trails across the globe in our database. These trails all have a verified route, information on the trail details such as distance, elevation, and which activities to do on the trail, driving directions to the nearest trailhead, as well as photos, reviews, and recordings from our community of users. Based on the location set in your profile, you will automatically be shown trails in your set location area. You can also search for trails in other areas.
If you do not see many hand-curated trails in your desired area, you can always switch to “Community Content '' on https://www.alltrails.com/. This view will display other user's recordings and custom maps. Recordings are other user's tracks that were created using an external GPS device or via the AllTrails app. Custom maps are hand-drawn routes using our mapping tool or the GPSies track creator.
You can discover other user's tracks by following these steps:
- Log in to your account on https://www.alltrails.com/ using a desktop/laptop computer
- To start, tap on ‘Explore’ in the upper right hand corner
- You will automatically be surfaced trails based on the location set in your profile, however you can also search for trails in other areas by typing in a city/state/country name or a specific park name in the search bar at the top
- You will then see a map with corresponding trails on the left hand side and trail pins on the map. By default this is called 'Curated Trails' and displays trails.
- Alternatively you can toggle to see other user's maps and recordings by clicking 'Community Content' which will display different colored pins on the map with corresponding maps and recordings from our community of users on the left hand side.
You can easily add trails, maps, and recordings to lists by tapping the heart icon on any trail page or trail card to keep track of routes you wish to save.
Why do my tracks have different activities on AllTrails?
AllTrails only allows for one activity type per track. Not all of our activities are the exact same as GPSies. We have mapped the activities from GPSies to the activities available on AllTrails for each track that was imported as an AllTrails 'Recording'. You can see the mapping of activity types below:
|GPSies Activity||AllTrails Activity|
|racing bike||road biking|
|nordic skiing||cross country skiing|
|randonnee skiing||cross country skiing|
|pack-animal hiking||horseback riding|
|off road driving|
