    Did a little hiking . The app is a great addition to our maps . I would suggest Guthook to anyone it has a lot of info about all the things you will find while hiking the trails that are available on the app
  • Love it!

    By HomeLessGuy03
    Used your AT Guide for my 2017 thru-hike and plan on using your PCT guide for 2018 thru-hike. Thanks!
  • Great app but still room for improvement

    By Sgt_N8
    Let me start by saying this app will get you through the entire AT without trouble. The only thing I would change would be to add the ability to create custom waypoints to save on your adventure. This is mostly because there were lots of camping and water supplies we came across that were not listed that will could be hard to find again when trying to go back and visit favorite spots on the trail. Another instance I could see it helping would be when you come across areas that are reroutes around bridge washouts or Bees nests. Even without this ability, this is still very much worth the cost of the maps.
  • AT Section Hike Essential

    By Woodywoo19
    Using this app exclusively, I’ve now section hiked three states on the Appalachian trail. During planning, it’s helped me visualize every single day - down to the minute, mileage, elevation and water stop. When I’ve gone off-trail, it’s pointed me in the right direction, and when I’m tired it’s been my motivation, knowing exactly how many miles there are to the next waypoint. It’s also kept me safe because I know exactly where water, shelter, and towns are, and it’s reliable as ever. I even had momentary issues with the app, and the creator himself was writing me, making updates, and genuinely wanted to help. I carry a back-up map of course, but this app is truly all you need to get out and hike.
  • Retested app and its working

    By TedAK
    I have retested the app on my iPhone and iPad and it appears to be working fine. My user error. Although i do suggest to rework the main selector window by highlighting the " select" button as it really is at a higher position in the hierarchy.
  • Essential gear for any thru-hike

    By plonk5
    Used this app on the CDT in 2017. I fired it up at least twenty times a day since the trail was mostly unmarked. Can’t imagine hiking without it!
  • Indispensable Hiking App

    By Tip2
    Of all the trail map apps out there this one is by far the best for the trails it supports. Yes I can navigate with a compass and paper map, but not nearly as fast or easily as with this app. The long distance hiking support info (waypoints, resupply, water, etc.) is extremely useful. User inputs on the condition of water sources, Trail/Shelters, etc is great to have on the trail. I use the ability to plan routes and assess how difficult (elevation, terrain) a section will be all the time. The GPS w/o a cell signal is very nice allowing a quick check on how far to my next waypoint. I also discovered the developers are very active in updating and maintaining the app so data stays as current as it possibly can and bugs get fixed quickly. A must have if you hike these trails.
  • Still just crashes

    By LeConte8808
    I haven’t been able to use this app at all since the major update combining all apps into one. I had purchased a guide for a section of the AT, and found the app invaluable. There have been several supposed bug fixes since the major update, but the app remains completely unusable on my iPhone 6 with iOS 11. I really hope this app gets back to functioning before my next section hike.
  • Appalachian Trail

    By "The News"
    Used the Guthook app while hiking the AT in 2017 and was extremely satisfied with it. Everything in one easy to use accessible package, worked well on my iPhone. The people at Guthook continued to update and improve on the app as I used it. Bugs were addressed and fixed quickly, waypoints, resupply, water sources were at the location the app said they would be. Would recommend, and have recommended this app to anyone thinking about hiking or section hiking the AT. My satisfaction and trust in the people at Guthook has me returning for an app to take on the Arizona Trail and I hope an app for the PNT is released very soon. NNoHurry
