App Reviews

  • Can't get back in

    By Ticked in PA
    I really like the app. I only had one section loaded but after the update I couldn't remember my password and I get a no email listed message when I try to reset my password
  • Corrupt update 10/14/2017

    By Framed for dead
    Downloaded new update and now the app crashes. Love the app please fix it before I hike again.
  • No longer works

    By Csmart01
    The tile changed look during the last upgrade and now the app no longer starts. Begins to download maps and then crashes.
  • WOW!

    By Lowrancc
    What an app. This is the perfect companion for a long distance hiker. So much info and all stored in your phone. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
  • Great app, no need for map and compass

    By burning moose
    If you so choose, no need for the extra weight of todos and compass. Keep a charge on your phone and this will take you from Georgia to Maine!
  • Major update and app now broken just in time for the weekend

    By smolaw
    Thanks. Now I can’t Navi to the parking area to begin the weekend hike.
  • Informative

    By Anglzofmyhrt
    I really like this app. Full of all sorts of information.
  • Need a refund!

    By Tumtuckle
    Crashes every time I open it after the last update. I wanted to use this weekend for a section hike, and now it’s useless
  • Has re-directed me many times

    By Gamemonger
    Use this app when I get off the trail by mistake and it has helped me to find my way back. Sometimes the arrow lags in re-direction, but none the less, it does finally get me headed back to the AT.
  • AT Thru-Hike (2015)

    By tabasco.hikes
    I thru-hiked the AT in 2015 which turned out to be the most amazing experience of my life and I did it with the Guthook App. I cannot recommend it enough for anyone planning to thru, section, or simply car camp the Appalachian trail. In my opinion, this goes on the list of "Don't leave home without it." The AT, at least when I hiked it, was 2,189.2 miles from Springer to Katahdin. Frankly, if you get lost on the AT, you probably don't belong there. So the value of the Guthook App isn't navigation. The reasons I found it to be most useful was to alert me to the elevation that was ahead, distance to shelters and water sources, and road crossings that would take me into trail towns to resupply. I used the Guthook App daily, but I also took along the AWOL AT Guide. I used this to a lesser extent, but I found it equally important. The AWOL guide is an invaluable resource for services along the trail (e.g., shuttles) and in trail towns (e.g., Post Office hours, lodging, etc.) I hope this helps and best wishes on your hike. "Today I begin a new trail in my life. A fresh start. A new beginning. Today I step off the rock at Springer to be transformed because I trust that it is only impossible dreams of this magnitude that will give birth to the type of change I covet."
