  • Developers lack of response

    By Ralph Netta
    The developer seems too only respond to the positive reviews.... waiting for their response from Tim on Dec 22nd. If you read a few reviews you’ll notice quickly that the developer for the most part simply ignores the critical reviews that point out quite explicit where this app needs updating, fixing and more developer attention. It seems obvious that their placing all their attention on simply selling maps instead of offering a quality product. Save your money for now until the developer gets their act together. There’s many other more worth while places to purchase than here. Ralph, New Jersey
  • Update app please

    By Church growth
    Maybe an app update would make Guthook a bit more user friendly.
  • Best hiking app

    By Crjackson9
    Guthook has been invaluable for my hikes on the Te Araroa and the Long Trail. Highly recommend
  • New update works when dark mode is off

    By Daved1058
    **update** Dark mode does not work with app. Thanks for the reply. Back to full working order I’m glad I have 30 miles left because the app is now unfunctional. You tap on anything like a shelter it doesn’t say the name or a description anymore. Comments are gone as well.
  • Guthook a major part of my PCT gear

    By meq56
    I’ve section hiked approximately 1600 miles of the PCT over the last 2 years and have used the app multiple times every single day. I’m an old school geologist so it was an adjustment to move away from paper maps but I’m cool with it thanks to Guthook!
  • Looks great

    By CharlieSheenLovesMitt
    So far so good. This thing is going to be a blessing on the Trail!!
  • Modern hiker must

    By D. S. N.
    Guthook is the most popular trail navigate app on the Appalachian Trail, as far as I can see. It works well for knowing shelter, campsite, water supply, wayside, view, and road locations. The public comment section of these locations keeps hikers updated on conditions, including water availability, bear sightings, trail conditions, etc. If one deviates from the trail, Guthook quickly shows where the mistake was made and how to get back on the trail. Since Guthook can be run in Airplane Mode, battery usage is optimized. My brother and I alternated days running it on our phones, which further helped with battery use efficiency. Overall I recommend using Guthook.
  • Great App

    By Mountain Man Frank
    Incredibly helpful on the trail. Even in airplane mode it provides accurate location.
  • Lifesaver!

    By Silver Supertramp
    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.
  • Overall, Very good, helpful App. Would buy/use again!!

    By Reno Rambler
    Used this for AT Thru-hike 2019. Best features are the pictures, the real time GPS, and the comments from other users. Very helpful in planning where to camp, resupply stops, where to stay and features to see. Comments really helped with shuttle service and which hostels to use. Overall, it beats carrying a paper map, and that’s from a guy who loves maps.
