  • 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.
  • A must have app for any AT hiker

    By seehim2
    Been section hiking the AT and this app has proven to be very helpful. It’s quite accurate and the comments and updates are valuable. This app is so simple to use. Know where to camp, where to get water, reviews, what to see, and read comments for extra information and camping options.
  • PCT

    By claycousins
    Awesome app!!!
  • PCT, CT and OT

    By @Smalldog
    I recently completed the Colorado Trail using Guthook as my primary navigation aid. Previously I had used it for over 800 mlles on the PCT and also on the Ouachita Trail. This app comes as close to being a perfect hiking tool as one could imagine. It has all the features you need and none of the extraneous junk you don’t. I used it every day. The public comments on the CT are the primary source of water information and every hiker I met counted on them. Great jobs guys!
  • I wouldn’t hike the AT without it

    By Tim Riordan
    What an excellent resource! I discovered it when talking to a through hiker on my last trek on the Appalachian Trail. It was a lifesaver for me. You can easily see how many miles more to go to your destination, details about upcoming sites, some facts about nearby towns, many more things. I wish I would’ve had this app year’s ago!
  • Crashes a few times daily

    By Derrick702
    Seems to crash when looking at waypoints and water spots
  • Excellent app with bugs

    By jreast
    This is a brilliant app, but there are a few annoying bugs. Saved routes that are deleted randomly come back and never stay deleted. As a planner and a section hiker after I complete a saved route not being able to delete is a bit of a pain. Otherwise really great app and being able to see other hikers comments about a location or spring is exceedingly helpful. Definitely worth the purchase, but wish the deleting routes issue would be resolved. Only reason for not 5 stars honestly.
