AT Hiker use a combination of your phone's GPS, downloaded topo maps, and the Google Maps interface to accurately locate your position on the trail. No phone service? Not a problem -- your phone's GPS pinpoints your location on top of topo maps downloaded as part of the app.
A bright red line indicates the location of the Appalachian Trail. Side spurs to shelters, water sources or other points of interest are indicated in blue.
An elevation profile of the AT is displayed in the Profile tab of the app. It shows you the elevation of the trail plotted against distance along with your current location on the trail.
Over 250 waypoints along this 172.2 mile portion of the Appalachian Trail are displayed both on the map and in the "Guide" tab of the app. A Trail Register allows you to post comments about any waypoint and view other hikers' comments. This feature can be helpful, for instance, to obtain information about upcoming water sources.
The types of waypoints include:
-->Water sources (including the reliability of each water source)
-->Tenting sites/camping sites
-->Mountain peaks, mountain-top towers
-->Parking areas along the trail
-->Picnic areas, campgrounds
-->Paved and dirt roads
-->Restaurants, stores, lodging
There are also markers on the map every mile of the trail track.
Clicking on a waypoint on the Map or in the Guide or in the Profile opens a detail page for the waypoint, providing further details about that particular waypoint. Details include the waypoint's mileage point and elevation, photographs of the waypoint, a Trail Register where you may post comments and read other users' comments, and other details that will help you during your hike, and help you plan your hike.
About the Appalachian Trail: The Appalachian Trail, or AT, is one of the United States' most treasured national trails. The 2,181-mile trail stretches from Springer Mountain in Georgia to Mount Katahdin in Maine. Along the way it passes through 14 states, including Georgia, North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire, and Maine. Much of the Long Trail overlaps the AT through the State of Vermont. Many hikers complete the entire trail in one season ("thru-hikers"), and countless others enjoy hiking anywhere from a few miles to hundreds of miles each year.
