Give the Gift of Guthook

We make hiking guides that get you to the places you've dreamed of.

As the makers of Guthook Guides and Cyclewayz, we help you navigate the most popular trails around the world on your smartphone. The majority of thru-hikers use our app on America's Triple Crown trails. Our hiking guides and cycling guides work completely offline. They use your mobile device’s internal GPS to display your location and guide you along the trail no matter where you are. Whether it's a day-hike, section-hike, or a thru-hike, our app will help get you to your dream trail. Let Guthook guide your next adventure!

Works Offline, No Data Required

Once you’ve completed the initial setup of the app, all of our trail guides work offline. They use your device’s internal GPS to display your current location and guide you along the route. Offline use includes access to all features of the guide, including the map, elevation profile, waypoint list, and more.

Trusted Trail Data

All of the data for our routes is collected by trusted individuals and partners, and is kept meticulously up to date. The track of each trail includes side trails and alternate routes, along with key waypoints. Many of our apps also offer a comprehensive town guide, helping you resupply and access other services quickly.

Built for Community

Stay informed about trail conditions ahead by reading other hikers’ waypoint comments, and let other hikers know about your experience by leaving your own comments. Keep your friends and family up to date by sharing your current location from a Google Maps link sent via email or text message.

Offline Maps

Our variety of offline map sets, optionally downloaded as part of the initial setup and accessible offline afterwards, provide you with extra information, such as topographic lines with elevation values and satellite imagery.

Detailed Waypoints

Waypoints are plotted on a map and elevation profile, and each includes its own detail page with photos and descriptions. Water waypoints offer the most up-to-date water information, gathered from trusted sources and checked by other users.

Tailored to You

Plan your day by letting the app calculate the distance to the next campsite, water source, or other waypoint. Not every hike is the same, and we know that. Create your own custom routes using our route builder tool.
