If you are digging this idea and this app, and want even more info about getting off the beaten path,  here is a copy of the in-app Tips

Mobile App Tips for Adventure Hiking Trails

Adventure Hiking Trails may parallel roads in some cases. The Adventure Trail Paths are shown in ORANGE.

“This map and directions are intended for general reference use only.  Always check local road and weather conditions. Stay on designated roads.  Dirt roads are impassable when wet. Please respect Private Property. Be prepared for a wilderness experience: Always bring extra water, food, sunscreen, and supplies. Do not remove artifacts or deface the ‘rock art’.  Leave no trace of your visit so others may enjoy.”

Cell phone service is non-existent in most areas, so be prepared when hiking the Kanab area.  Essential information is available offline for the Adventure Trails and Outdoor Recreational Opportunities on this app. In areas without cellular service map tiles may not be displayed.  You can go to "Settings" and toggle on topographic maps to assist with navigation.
Safety:  Enjoy your trip –by being prepared.  Due to cell phone battery limitations, we always advise visitors to bring charging cords or battery packs and have access to hard copy maps as a backup.   
About Adventure Trail Featured Paths & Content:   The Kane County Commission invites you to use the Kanab Trails App.  You can plan your excursions and follow the route on your mobile device while on location whether driving ATV's or hiking Kanab area.

These trails are meant to serve as guides for your Kane County Adventure with both map and satellite view options.  Each Adventure Trail is its own category that lists the trail path(s) its trailhead and destination. Some Trails show highway access points.   If you have downloaded the app to your device and then enter an area with no cell coverage, the essential paths, and points of interest are still available offline.

Adventure Hiking Trail Experience:  Many of the Adventure Trails follow roads for a portion of the way.  You will see which type of road is running alongside, and when the road ends the hiking routes begins.
