This goes on discount every couple of months, just giving a heads-up for this go around. Nice mapping/gps app for IOS/Android. From their marketing email:
Skip the backyard party this Labor Day weekend and make memories out on the trails! With AllTrails Pro, access real-time trail info including air quality and pollen, as well as extra safety features like Lifeline and offline maps so you can hit the trail with confidence.

Was $29.99, Now $14.99*

*Offer ends Tuesday, September 3, 2019 at 11:59pm PST. Offer applies to purchase of a one-year subscription to AllTrails Pro.

After the first year, bumps up renewal to $29.99, so set a reminder to cancel if you don't want to pay the higher price. Smilie

I love this App and it is probably the only one I pay for. If you are into hiking, this is a great deal.

I do like the app but I can't justify a sub that high as I'm not hiking every weekend.
Also I find their method of calculating distance via GPS isn't great on hikes with lots of switch backs or tight turns as it often cuts the distance short compared to standard methods of measurements.

Sorry, with free offline topo map apps, I don't know why there are always so many folks praising them. You pay $x per year to AllTrails or Gaia GPS for OpenStreetMaps, trail maps and US government topo maps you can get for free, in free apps, that are one search away in your phone's app store. I used one of them on my last multiday backpacking trip (OfflineMaps) and it worked super well. I'm sure there are other good free ones too. I don't get it.

I don't like the auto-renew feature. To disable this:

Hover over your name on top right of web page and select 'Settings' in the drop down menu.
Click the 'Turn Off Auto-Renew' link in the lower right sidebar under Account Settings.

First of all, their map layers are proprietary, so it's ignorance that has you referencing them as OSM. Second, you can DL as many map layers as you'd like including air pollution, smoke maps, topo, etc. Many of which are not readily available either. Further, you can look at others' GPS routing data of recordings they've done to follow off-the-trail routes to extremely interesting places that are not on ANY maps - or to get you back on course if you're lost. It doesn't sound like you're looking to actually hear justification, as you've already made up your mind, but there's plenty of value there, beyond the surface I've scratched in this short comment. You can continue to use OSM.

My point was that people literally believe you have to buy a subscription to one of these apps to get offline topo and trail maps and it's just not true, at all.

I have a premium subscription and I have a few complaints.

* their search needs to be more location aware. It knows where I am, so when I search for a trail it should heavily weight nearby trails. Don't show me trails in other countries or half way across my own as the top search results when a trail in my state or a neighboring one is far more likely to be what I'm looking for
* they have a lot of redundant entries and it would be nice if they cleaned up entries to truly match to official trailheads
* allow your subscribers to download GPX or other trail data from the app and not just from a desktop web browser, as this would allow people to plan a hike (or other) on the go
