Does anyone use any particular apps for trail running? I'm wondering specifically if there are any apps that guide you on new trails in /around Dublin and Wicklow area.

Unlikely there is anything free that would be good enough for mountains.
ViewRanger or EastWest Mapping would be good paid ones.
|Eoin Keith||Mar 3 2020, 9:46am||plenty of online trail mapping, like opencyclemaps. For similar offline abilities try something like Locus maps combined with openandromaps for offline mapping, or talkytoaster for mapping if you're using a garmin device.|

You'll find lots of segments all over Dublin / Wicklow. There's not much open trails that are not part of a segment.
Click on any segment and it'll bring you to the leaderboard. Click on the name and you'll see that person's full route.
Viewranger is pretty good, shows open trails.

|John Condon||Mar 3 2020, 1:57pm||View Ranger is a handy app for both navigation and routes|
|Rory Leadbetter||Mar 5 2020, 9:49am||Ive used Both the View Ranger and All Trails apps. Found them both useful but would definitely go with All Trails.|
