What is Smart Trail?
SmartTrail provides a national view (England and Wales) of all Public Rights of Way with vehicular rights.
The system is designed to provide a consistent view of those lanes that are driveable, not driveable and those with seasonal or other restrictions . It also provides a platform via which users can share information about the lanes by leaving user comments.
What is Green Laning?
Green laning is all about the exploration of un-surfaced roads in England and Wales. Its very similar to overlanding and on a smaller scale - but no less enjoyable!
SmartTrail is designed to work alongside ViewRanger, Memory Maps and OSMaps, not to replace them. It provides information about whether you can drive or ride as certain lane - the whereabouts of the lane can already be determined by looking at the base OS Map.
Its is important to remember that it is illegal in the UK to drive a vehicle anywhere other than the Highway unless you have been given the land owners permission, and that all vehicles used on a "Green lane" must be fully road legal, taxed & insured (and MOT'd where appropriate).

I have Smart Trail on my Phone, PC, Tablet, I have used many other paid maps on the market, but I have to say All Terrain's SmartTrail is the easiest to use by far, I recommend to all my members in my club they use All Terrain UK.

I've used smart trail a few times I find it very easy to navigate and use the traffic light system is excellent in working out what is legal to drive and what is not, as said before other members are more than happy to help if you need it.

I always use ST for planning purposes now - thankfully ATUK also provided me with a walkthrough mapping session where I was able to also interact with something like viewranger to help with navigation when out and about. Watching the forums and other media the updates are regular and the encouragement for user evidence supportive too.
