FEATURES

Works in Airplane Mode

No mobile service or internet is required after initial setup. The app uses your device’s built-in GPS and downloaded topo maps.

Waypoints

Waypoints are plotted on the map, listed in a guide, and plotted on the elevation profile, including water sources, tenting sites, trail junctions, road crossings, landmarks, and town and resupply points of interest.

Are We There Yet?

The app knows where you are and calculates the trail distance to the next shelter and the next water source.

Water Information

Includes the most up-to-date water information gathered us and by other users of the app. The information is automatically updated in the comments section.

Route Creator Tool

Create your own route with the route creator tool. This is helpful for daily planning or to remember a completed day or section hike.

Elevation Profile
