With more people heading to the U.S. national parks every year, it can be hard to feel like you’re getting off the beaten track. Last year alone parks saw 7.7% increase in visitors, which translated to 24 million more people hitting popular trails and parks.

However, for those who want to find the path less travelled there’s now a solution. Navigation supplier TomTom havs launched a new website that makes it easier for people to discover new, and less travelled, trails in the U.S. national parks. The dedicated site means people can view and download dozens of digital maps, featuring trails at lesser-known parks including, Deer Valley Loop in Saguaro National Park, Arizona, or Mount Scott Trail in Crater Lake National Park, Oregon.

The site will also include lesser-known trails at some of the more well-known parks like Lost Horse Mine Loop in Joshua Tree National Park, California, and Cadillac North Ridge Trail in Acadia National Park, Maine.

The project is in partnership with the National Park Foundation, and TomTom will also be supporting the foundation through donations during National Park Week (April 10th – 23rd, 2017).

“TomTom wants people to get going and enjoy the outdoors, as there is so much natural beauty to enjoy and so many national parks and trails that are ready to be explored,” says Jocelyn Vigreux, President of TomTom, Inc. “Our partnership with the National Park Foundation lets us combine efforts to inspire people to get off the beaten path in our national parks – whether it’s the one right in their backyard or the one they travel across the U.S. to visit.”

“National parks are incredible natural, cultural, and historical resources that offer countless activities that promote active, healthy lifestyles,” says Angela Hearn, senior vice president of marketing and communications at the National Park Foundation. “Through our partnership with TomTom, we will work together to help more people discover the endless benefits of connecting with and protecting their national parks.”
