Terms & Conditions

tl;dr: Be careful and don't steal our stuff.

Hiking can be a dangerous activity if you are not prepared or do not use adequate caution. We are not responsible for how you use the information contained in our apps. Use of the applications is at your own risk. The applications are NOT INTENDED FOR NAVIGATION. Get a map and a compass and learn to use them. A GPS can help but at the end of the day knowing how to survive in the woods, should something go wrong, is your responsibility not ours. Be careful.

We own the app, it's code and design. You can't use our code, designs, etc in your apps or other projects without prior written consent. We derived the lists displayed in the app from various sources that we believe to be freely usable. We do not maintain any rights nor control over the lists used.

There is no warranty or guarantee provided for use of the applications.

We are not responsible for any data loss, should it occur. We do not have access to your data and things happen. Should you lose your visit information we can't help you. We don't know any reason this sort of thing should happen but we need to be clear. If your phone is hit by lightning we're not able to recreate your visit data. You'll probably be fine but we felt we should state this clearly.

Don't make a mess of things and ruin it for others. Yeah, this is not something we can enforce but it seems there are more and more people every day enjoying the outdoors and the wilderness. Please practice Leave No Trace. You go into the wilds to enjoy the scenery so don't ruin it for others who come after you. Familiarize yourself with the policies of the land management agencies in charge of the areas you visit. In New York that would be the Department of Environmental Conservation. We're not going to list all the rules here but learn where you can camp, what you can bring into the woods, where you can fly your drone for those killer clips. (hint it's not allowed in a wilderness area.) There are responsibilites to being a good citizen of the woods. Learn the rules. Follow them.

Some of the peaks referenced in the app are on private property. In many cases the landowner will allow access but it's up to you to determine the procedures they prefer you follow. Some landowners will welcome an email or a phone call requesting permission. Some don't want any access and do not want to be contacted at all. This is your responsibility to work out before heading to the woods.

Famously the Catskill 3500 included two peaks on private land, Graham and Doubletop. In recent years the owner of these peaks has revoked the right of the public to visit. They do not want to receive inquiries. These peaks are off limits. We only include these peaks in our lists as legacy information. Many people have been hiking for decades and may have visited back when it was permissible. FYI at the time of this writing the Catskill 3500 Club no longer requires climbing these peaks. Please do not visit these two nor any other where you do not have permission from the landowner.
