As an avid hiker, I’ll be the first to admit that one of the things I love most about hiking in the German Alps is getting away from technology! That’s why I don’t recommend being glued to your phone, tracking every step. Instead, put your phone away. Bring it out occasionally when there’s a peak you want to identify, know whether a certain berry is safe to eat, or are unsure of which way to go at a crossroads. That way, these hiking apps are enhancing, not hindering your hike!
