Take a walk with us.

Atlas Guides was started by a couple of thru-hikers who hiked the Pacific Crest Trail together in 2010. The first Guthook Guide was released in 2012, and we haven’t stopped since. What started as a simple, navigational smartphone guide for the PCT has now turned into a portfolio of hiking guides for the most popular trails around the world. As a small team of experienced long-distance backpackers and hikers, our goal is to provide you with the best smartphone navigational guide for your outdoor adventure.

Integrity

We care deeply about the products that we put into the world and the partnerships that we create. We strive to engage with everyone in a way that promotes openness, honesty, and transparency.

Curiosity

We are fundamentally curious about the natural world around us. We hope to help other curious individuals experience this world by exploring the depths of wilderness and pushing the boundaries of their previous experience.

Passion

Atlas Guides was founded by long distance hikers who wanted to create a better experience for other hikers. We have continued to bring that enthusiasm and excitement to everything we do. We make apps that we use on our own hikes!

Responsibility

As a part of the outdoor industry, we have a responsibility to the places that we inhabit. We care deeply for our public lands and partner with trail organizations to ensure and promote responsible use.

Community

Not only do we have a responsibility to the land, but we also have a responsibility to the diverse community of hikers and outdoor enthusiasts who we support. We encourage partnership, collaboration, and welcoming attitudes.

Reliability

We understand how important it is to stay safe in the wilderness. We offer reliable and accurate trail and water information, and act as a safety net for those who might have been afraid to tackle a big adventure on their own.

"People often ask me advice about what I use for navigation. Obviously that varies depending on where I’m going, but I typically start with downloading the Guthook app for the route I’m doing to my phone… These folks get it and they do a great job of helping the rest of us out. Thank you guys!"
