Maps on Your Smartphone
We recommend that you install the free Avenza app on your smartphone, and then download the free “Newton Trails Map.” This map, created from the City of Newton Geographic Information System, has a comprehensive set of trails, and can be used even in areas with limited cellphone coverage. Your location appears as a blue dot on the map. Learn more about this app.
Many other apps and web pages allow you to view trail maps on your smartphone. This list of Smartphone Trail Maps compares some of them.
City of Newton Maps
Map is GPS-enabled. To see your location, press the location icon while viewing the map on your smartphone. (Note: as of Fall 2022, the location feature wasn’t working reliably on iPhones, or on Android phones using the Firefox browser. The map works fine with the Chrome browser. As an alternative, the Avenza app described above offers access to the same map data with a more reliable location feature.)
