A must have app for backpacking. Awesome!

I am a novice backpacker, but this app helped me plan and hike like an expert. I just used the JMT app on a 55 mile backpacking trip. The app helped me plan and adjust my trip real time with the notes of backpackers that walked the trail just before me. The app allows you to plan everything from campsites, water, and resupply points. I also like the elevation profile feature that allows you to plan the miles for the day. You know whether the trail will be an uphill trek and by how much elevation. The backpacker comment feature in the app is very important and useful. Hikers can make posts about trail conditions, so you can learn if you have to hike two miles for water or ten miles. A map may show you a river crossing, but this app will let you know if the river is actually flowing when a previous hiker posts an update. This app gives you near real time information to plan your hike. This app doesn’t just show you where you are every step of the way, the app provides useful information and photos of important trail features along the way. The app works with your phone’s own GPS and does not require a cellular connection. Awesome app! Highly recommend.

Lifesaver!

What a difference this app makes on a thru hike! Although it does take away a bit of the spontaneous adventure out of a hike, it’s more than necessary for the modern interpretation of a thru hike. Being able to plan out your day with accurate up to date information makes it possible to push all the way until dark and not worry about water or a flat spot to camp. The aspect of a community is also great with the ability to easily add your own input and look back on what previous generations of hikers had to say. You’ll see some sweet hidden gems along the trail because of this!
I love the concept for the big trails, and I won’t ever attempt a thru hike without something like it. However, I give 4 stars because there is still a lot of room for improvement. Even in the couple years I’ve had the app they’ve made some good changes, but it still feels a bit awkward navigating through the app on occasion and some features feel a bit lazy. I’m sure as more and more folks start to flood the trails who are used to the constant influence of technology the app will feel pressure to change.
Overall it serves the purpose great, and the GPS feature could literally be a life saver. Just don’t get too caught up in the constant updates on mileage.

The Best!

Anything I can do to get this app a 5-star review is worth my time. Everything from the ground up, from the original idea to how well it works on trail is life-changing on the trail and even in the planning stages. I come from 25 years of thru-hiking experience. My hiking days began with National Geographic articles, carrying guide books on trail, and then Halfmile’s maps were a constant companion on the PCT, until the Colorado Trail in 2015. That was my first Guthook experience and it was incredible. In an instant, I was able to see exactly where I was on trail, where the water was or wasn’t, and even the best places in towns in more or less real time. I like the social aspect somewhat, more for the information I really need. I hope Atlas expands to include more trails- while realizing that lesser known trails are less traveled and the return on investment might not be warranted. But there’s a space on my phone for a Guthook on a thru-hike no matter how how short or long, a thru is a thru- my money and yours is well spent within this app.
