This fall, California State Parks is launching a new mobile application as a pilot program in eight parks throughout the state. If you visit any of the parks listed below, download the OuterSpatial app on all Apple iOS devices and try it out. You’ll find detailed information about the activities you love to do in these parks, including special events, maps, photos, and official trail guides, all in one place.

The first phase of the project runs through November 2017 and may expand to include additional parks within the State Park system. So get outside with OuterSpatial and help us make a tool that is tailored to your adventures.
