Experience Olympia & Beyond is thrilled to announce our partnership with the State of Washington Tourism and the Tread Map mobile app to share Thurston County’s amazing outdoor recreational assets with the world, and to help guide guests to the locations that will best meet their needs.
TREAD Map is a hyper-local trail mapping app built by outdoor enthusiasts in Washington State who understand what users want to know. Is a tree down on the trail? Is the parking lot full? This app delivers real-time updates that alert users to current conditions. It also equips outdoor enthusiasts to:
- Learn about alternative destinations when parking lots are full or trails are too crowded
- Access and provide real-time trail conditions
- Post-trip reports, photos, and videos
- Share local experiences
- Connect with other trail enthusiasts
Get off the beaten path
Known for its expansive and varied trail system, Washington State has been discovered by adventure seekers. As a result, some of the most popular trails are overused. TREAD Map specializes in offering alternatives to popular trails so that you always know where to go.
Enjoy outdoor activities year-round
The hyper-local content in the TREAD Map is provided by those who are out on the trails and waterways or managing the land. It’s built for trail users by trail users and includes four-season, real-time updates.
Help local land managers
TREAD Map is informed by local land managers and allows users to share observations with land managers. That means when you post to TREAD Talk, you’re providing important information to the people who can help!
