The App is intended for use on smart phones that have a working and stable Internet connection. The App uses GPS (plus WiFi and Cellular when available) to find your location so it is highly recommended that you enable Location Services and give us permission to access your current location while using the App. Also,  a good Wi-Fi or mobile data reception (e.g. 3G/4G) will improve the overall experience.

The App uses the Google and Apple Maps APIs to display locations on a map and to display directions along a route. These directions should be used only as a reference and should not be relied upon for navigational purposes. You should use the App in conjunction with other navigation aids such as printed maps.

We make no representations, warranties or guarantees, whether expressed or implied, that the content on the App is accurate, complete or up-to-date.

We may make changes to the content contained on the App at any time without notice.  We do not, however, make any commitment to update the content. We will not be held responsible for a claim arising from any inaccuracy of the information contained within the App.


We warn you against the dangers of using mobile phones, computers and other electronic equipment when you are engaged in potentially hazardous activities such as crossing roads, driving or operating machinery.

By providing information, including Trail routes and regarding sights, on the App, we do not endorse their quality or safety. Note also that it is not necessary to enter private property to find clues and you should not do so.

When using the App you accept responsibility for your own safety and the safety of your companions and children. It is your responsibility to supervise your companions and children at all times.



The App may include links to third party websites that are controlled and maintained by others. Any links to other websites are not an endorsement of such websites and you acknowledge and agree that we are not responsible for the content or availability of any such sites, and that we make no warranty that these websites are free of viruses or anything else that may be harmful or destructive.



All copyright, trademarks and all other intellectual property rights in the App and its content (including without limitation the App design, text, graphics and all software and source codes connected with the App) are owned by or licensed to us or otherwise used by us as permitted by law.

You agree not to violate, circumvent or reverse engineer, decompile, disassemble or otherwise interfere with, or cause another third party to attempt to do so on your behalf, any element or elements of the security framework of the App. Any persons found interfering with the engineering matrix of the App may be prosecuted.


The App is provided on an AS IS and AS AVAILABLE basis without any representation or endorsement made and without warranty of any kind, whether express or implied, including but not limited to the implied warranties of satisfactory quality, fitness for a particular purpose, non-infringement, compatibility, security and accuracy.

To the extent permitted by law, we will not be liable for any indirect or consequential loss or damage whatsoever (including without limitation loss of business, opportunity, data or profits) arising out of or in connection with the use of the App, while following a  Trail or for any changes to, or unavailability of Trails.

We make no warranty that the functionality of the App will be uninterrupted or error free, that defects will be corrected or that the App or the server that makes it available are free of viruses or anything else that may be harmful or destructive.



You agree to indemnify and hold us harmless from and against all liabilities, legal fees, damages, losses, costs and other expenses in relation to any claims or actions brought against us arising out of any breach by you of these Terms and Conditions or other liabilities arising out of your use of the App.


If any of these Terms and Conditions should be determined to be invalid, illegal or unenforceable for any reason by any court of competent jurisdiction then such Term or Condition shall be severed and the remaining Terms and Conditions shall survive and remain in full force and effect and continue to be binding and enforceable.
