A great way to enjoy springtime is by taking a hike or going for a mountain bike ride or run. There are some great nature trails and the AllTrails app finds those near you. It gives you a map and uses your smartphone GPS to track your distance and other cool things. It's free, but there is a 20-dollar upgrade that accesses topographic maps and info from National Geographic.
If you're looking to enjoy more of the great outdoors, get the State Parks Locator app. This will help you find the closets parks and nature preserves. It lists more than three-thousand state parks across the country, all searchable by location. The app provides details on what each park offers, directions from your location and contact information. Some even have photos of the place. Available for Android and iPhone for 2-99.
