How do I make a recording private?

When you link your recording to a trail, you are contributing to the AllTrails community by allowing it to be viewable in the Recordings section of the trail page.

You can make a specific recording private so that it's only visible to you by following these steps:

Via desktop or laptop computer:

  1. Log in to your account on
  2. Hover over 'History' in the header and click on 'Recordings'
  3. Click on the recording and click on 'Edit' in the trail image to the right the star rating
  4. Check the box next to 'Make this track private' and click 'Update'

 Via iPhone or Android app:

  1. Open the AllTrails app
  2. Tap on 'History' on the bottom navigation bar
  3. Select 'Recordings' from the drop-down menu (iPhone) or tabs (Android) at the top
  4. Tap on the recording that you would like to edit 
  5. Tap the overflow menu (three dots)  in the upper right corner and select 'Edit' 
  6. Toggle the option to turn the recording 'Private'
