Search for trails in the app
See these articles on how to search for trails in the app:

Search for trails on the website
You can use the trail search page at www.gaiagps.com/hike to search for and discover offroad trails. Be sure to filter your results by Activity > 4X4.
I have a premium membership then found out you can't sort by offroad on android. When are you going to support that for Android?
I have added a feature request for a way to filter for offroad trails in the Android app. If I can do anything else for you, please contact us through the Help button in the bottom right corner of the page.
