What is a recording?

A recording is a route that you log by recording your activity with the AllTrails app, or by importing a GPX file to your AllTrails profile. 

Your recordings are automatically synced across your devices and are tied to your user account, making it easy to keep tabs on your outdoor activity. 

Since many trails often have more than one possible route, it's helpful to check other users' recordings for inspiration. Recordings can be found on any trail details page by scrolling down to the 'Recordings' section.  

Any recordings you log that are linked to a trail will automatically be viewable by other members on the trail page, unless your profile is set to private.
