I have all trails app on my ipod. I just have it for the information about the trails. On trails, I like my GPS. It keeps track of the distance, time and speed, batteries last longer and don't need internet/phone service. We've been in many places where there is no reception. As for calories burned, maybe try a heart rate monitor? I hope this helps.
Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.

I would agree with the GPS, also you may want to look at map my walk, I think it will give you a lot of what you are looking for. As far as finding hikes, there are some good websites for CA, not sure where you are but you might want to look for a Meetup Group. There is a great site for hikes around the SF Bay area and as was said the state and national parks usually have good info on their web sites.
No app info from me, my "dumb" phone doesn't do that stuff...but there are lots of great hikes in Northern California, anywhere in the Sierra is nice, and any of the National or State parks should have good trail info on their websites.
Welcome to the team!

I can't really give you any App suggestions but it sounds like you really want a GPS - my Garmin does everything you want but the apps I've seen only do part of it. Good luck - I'll be checking back to see if anyone else had something to suggest!
