App Reviews

  • Essential

    By SlowBrother
    I’ve used the Guthook Guides for Thru-hiking the PCT, the Colorado Trail, the Arizona Trail, and the CDT. Indispensable in a word. Love the crowd sourced water and trail reports. Having maps and satellite views of the trails even without any signal makes it an essential resource. Elevation maps! Well,Yeah! Info on towns, scenic locations, trail junctions, mileage, altitude, pretty much everything you need to get you there. Cannot imagine taking on a long trail without it. Truly worth the price. -SlowBro
  • New update is buggy

    By Brandon Far
    Been using Guthook the last two years. Amazing app and have faith they will fix the issues. I’m currently finishing my CDT thru and have noticed since the update that it is buggy. Often times my clicks don’t open up waypoints or close the word bubble. I can’t pinpoint the mileage on the red line anymore. You can only know the mileage from waypoints so if someone leaves a comment e.g. “ water cache at 160.4” it can be hard to locate unless there is a nearby waypoint or my gps arrow is close. When in airplane mode you can locate current location in list mode anymore. It just shows a loading circle. I hope these bugs and laggy ness gets fixed before my next long walk. There is nothing like this app and I love it. Maybe my problems are just me being oldschool and resisting change.
  • Thanks Guthook

    By Amos/Samson
    Used this Ap to complete hiking Triple Crown. Nobody prefers to pull out a map on a snowy, rainy windy day!! Thanks a million
  • Excellent Upgrade!

    By Selbydunitagin
    Really simplifies the way to look at things along the trail such as shelters, water sources, etc. All condensed to a list. Very nice look and function.
  • Not Just for Thruhikers

    By Store32Shopper
    I love this app and use it every time I'm on the AT for a short section hike or even just for the day. I've also helped out about a dozen thruhikers this past season with the app. (AWOL's guide is really good, but only gets updated yearly. This app is continually updated by user input.) Most thrus that saw it in person went onto purchase it once they saw how great it is. I've run into an occasional issue, but Ryan (Guthook) is super in that he gets back to you right away and is very fast to correct issues. Great guy, great app - we all win.
  • Perfect app for the AT

    By northeast greybears
    I hadn’t used this type of trail centric map and have been more used to using standard maps, caltopo or Gaiagps but found this a much easier and focused method to track progress and distances to water or shelter. I still used the others to supplement information as I am always curious about side trails and alternate routes as a section hiker. Big two thumbs up from me.
  • Useful, but not intuitive.

    By Env Engineer
    Guthook data is solid, the to extract the most out of the app is not intuitive. Would be great to allow customization of which elements you prefer to see in the List mode. Would be very helpful if there were more tutorials available. Could have more info on main trail access via side trails to improve utility for day-hikers. Keith Adams - AT in PA
  • Very Reliable and Intuitive:

    By JDConroy
    I have been using for section hikes, and am very impressed by reliability, ease of use, and efficiency on power draw. Great application! Worth the spend.
  • Wrong turns

    By jet trail
    This app has saved me from taking wrong turn and walking extra miles so many times it’s not even funny. And water management is a god send they used to call me tanker because I always carried 6 liters now I have accurate info so only carry what I need
  • JMT Guide is Almost Perfect

    By MdubyaNM
    So I have to say right off the bat, that I loved this app, and it got me back on the straight and narrow more times than I care to admit. What I would like to see is more of the popular/critical points listed. For example, The Golden Staircase should be added, as well as the LeConte Rock Monster. The last thing I’d like to see is the ability for the app to “switch” to the side trails, and correctly display elevation, distance etc... Do those things, and this app/guide would be perfect in my book.
