Mapping the Great Outdoors

Natural Atlas is a comprehensive mapped guide to the great outdoors. Using Natural Atlas you can plan and track all your U.S. outdoor adventures, including hiking, backpacking, cycling, boating and camping.

At the heart of Natural Atlas is a beautifully designed topographical map, created from OpenStreetMap data. On top of this topographical basemap Natural Atlas plots thousands of natural points of interest, including waterfalls, hot springs and arches. The map also includes outdoor activity facilities, such as campgrounds, boat launches and picnic areas.

Natural Atlas comes with a full range of tools for route planning, including the ability to import GPX trails. You can also use Natural Atlas to record the track of your outdoor adventures and map your trip photos. Note-taking tools enable you to notate parts of your trail and add comments to sections of your outdoor trips. The social sharing features of Natural Atlas also allow you to follow friends and other members of the Natural Atlas community.

Natural Atlas naturally supports offline use. You can download for free parts of the map (enough for most uses) to use offline. If you need more of the map to use offline then you can easily upgrade to a paid subscription.
