Getting people outside with innovative technology.
We're on a mission
We created Transit & Trails in 2008 because we wanted to get outside for fun without driving cars. While developing it in partnership with the Bay Area Open Space Council, a coalition of most of the park agencies in the San Francisco Bay Area, we learned there was a need and a desire among local outdoor groups for better, more affordable technology.
In 2013, we decided to leverage all of our experience with technology and the outdoors to start Trailhead Labs. We've spent our time since continuing to learn, partner, and collaborate with outdoor groups all over to build innovative technology that connects and engages people with the outdoors.
Open data & open space
We are proud supporters of open source and open data, so it only makes sense to combine this with our passion for open space! We're working with groups like Code for America to build open standards for outdoor data.
We should talk
I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery—air, mountains, trees, people. I thought, "This is what it is to be happy."
The outdoor technology platform.
Stewards of our open space.
To those devoid of imagination a blank place on the map is a useless waste; to others, the most valuable part.
Meet our team
Adventurers and technologists.
Over-civilized people are beginning to find out that going to the mountains is going home; that wildness is a necessity.
We'd love to chat about your project.
We have team members in San Francisco, Bend, and Denver.
