Stay safe on the trail - with brand new Highlight and Tour warnings

So you always know ahead of time if a Tour or Highlight includes any dangerous sections, we’ve added brand new warnings to our Android and iOS app and to komoot.com. Planning a hike along a knife-edged arete or set to ride down a route-ridden trail suitable for experienced mountain bikers only? Komoot will let you know when advanced experience or equipment may be required on a route — so you can focus on confidently exploring the great outdoors.

To make this information instantly understandable, the new warnings come in two types:

  • The first is shown on sections that we think pose a reasonable danger, and is displayed alongside a yellow warning label. For these sections, you may need additional safety equipment, a head for heights and previous experience on similar terrain.
  • The second is shown on sections we consider highly dangerous. These sections are clearly displayed with an unmissable red icon. These parts of Tours/Highlights pose a real risk to life and should be treated with the utmost respect. Excellent terrain assessment and navigation skills are absolutely essential, as are technical safety equipment and professional risk management planning. 

Bring the map to life with Trail View photos

Trail View brings the lines on the map to life with user-sourced photos of the trail curated by an advanced image-detection algorithm. Showing up as green dots on the new Trail View map layer on komoot.com, these images give hikers, gravel cyclists and mtb riders a visual on what that trail actually looks like, allowing you to plan more accurately for your adventures. Now you’ll be able to make better-informed decisions about whether a specific trail is suitable for your sport and/or experience level. Plus you and your friends on komoot will have an extra reason to get excited as you visualize what awaits you on your adventure.
