Explore with confidence using Avenza Maps

Visitors to RVCA’s conservation areas can now navigate even our most remote trails with confidence thanks to a new partnership with Avenza Maps. The Toronto-based mobile app offers GPS-enabled maps that can be used offline and without cell service to help you keep your bearings even in the deepest woods. 

The app is supported by Android and iOS. Instructions on how to get started and use the mobile app can be found at https://www.avenzamaps.com/maps/how-it-works.html. QR codes for the RVCA’s Avenza maps can be found at the trailheads of eight conservation areas, and can also be found on their property-specific webpages. Scanning these QR codes will download RVCA’s maps to your phone to take out onto the trail. If you don't have Avenza Maps, you will be guided through the installation process. To avoid installation issues, the RVCA encourages visitors to download the free app before leaving home. 

Traditional trailhead maps and printed brochures will continue to be available, as well as downloadable PDF maps.
