Guthook Guides help you get to the places you’ve dreamed of! Explore the most popular hiking and biking trails around the world with your own personal handheld trail guide.

*** NEW SOCIAL FEATURE: Invite friends and family to follow you on your hike. Drop check-ins along the trail and leave message updates to let your followers know you’re safe. Adjust your privacy settings, approve followers, request to follow other hikers, and manage check-ins in the new Social Feed menu.

Each guide works completely offline, even in airplane mode. It uses your mobile device’s internal GPS to display your location and guide you along the trail no matter where you are. Whether you go on a day hike, section hike, or thru hike, Guthook Guides will help you find your way without getting lost on the trail. The majority of thru-hikers use our app on America’s Triple Crown trails which include the Appalachian Trail, Pacific Crest Trail, and Continental Divide Trail.

Guthook Guides has your adventure covered with detailed maps showing your exact GPS location, thousands of miles of trail routes, and over 10,000 waypoint details. All of the data for our trails is collected by trusted individuals and partners, and is kept up to date.

What’s New

Version 9.2

9.2: We're starting to make some bigger changes. In this update, we've improved the Settings, Offline File Manager, and general Info views to be a little cleaner and easier to use. Map and photo downloads can now be found in the settings menu, but otherwise you should recognize the updated views if you've used them before.

As always, we're also making plenty of changes under the hood. And let us know if you have any trouble by emailing us at

Needs improvement for the Camino.

This was the app I used the most while doing the Camino Frances. Overall I like how you can find your location and distance to the next town. It is missing the most direct route between Tricastela and Sarria. It shows a couple of hostels on the route but not the trail. Other apps provide more info on albergues/hostels. I encountered a couple of glitches in the app and the support team was excellent. With some updates on the Camino Frances this will be a five star app.

CDT Hiker Report Line

The current number this app has for hikers to report in Canada is wrong.
The correct number for hikers to call in and report is 403-317-3953. Can you please update the information as many hikers will need this number. Thank you.

Developer Response ,
