About this app

Since 2010, The A.T. Guide®, a.k.a. “The Awol Guide,” has been the guidebook of choice for hikes of any length on the Appalachian Trail. The book contains thousands of landmarks such as campsites, water sources, summits & gaps. The trail’s elevation profile is included & every landmark is aligned to the profile. Hikers using this guide know where they are on the trail, what views, streams & campsites are ahead & whether they’ll be hiking uphill or downhill to get there. The A.T. Guide answers all of your questions about how to get rides, where to stay, & where to get supplies. There are 95 maps of towns on or near the trail showing where to find these services & detailed listings for businesses. The A.T. Guide is the most innovative trail guidebook ever developed.

CLICKABLE PHONE NUMBERS & EMAILS
Contact listings instantly from your mobile device w/a simple tap of a phone number or email address.

CLICKABLE LISTING URL
Not only does The A.T. Guide contains links for most of its listings, our awol.site system utilizes short urls which saves space & allows us to adjust links behind the scenes so that links stay current throughout the season for PDF & printed guide users alike.

MILEAGE LOG
Choose a start & end mileage for the day & record it to your mileage log. Great for keeping track of your progress as well as planning your future hiking days.

HIGHLIGHTS & ANNOTATIONS
Highlight features & make notes throughout the PDF. Great for marking confirmation numbers or even remembering what happened during your hike.

PRINT A.T. GUIDE PAGES TO ANY WIRELESS PRINTER
This is a feature you can’t get w/traditional apps. Mobile devices fail. Printed pages or maps are important to bring along w/you on the trail. With the PDF reader you can have the best of both worlds. Use your PDF as an interactive app & print the pages needed to take w/you as you hike.

PORTRAIT OR LANDSCAPE VIEWING
The PDF is optimized for viewing on a mobile device. Rotate to landscape mode to make the most of your screen’s real estate. Use a two finger spread gesture to zoom in & pinch to zoom out.

External links didn't work on my Google Pixel 3, Android 12 (web sites, email addresses, phones numbers). Only internal links worked (links from one page to another). Just upgraded to a Google Pixel 6 Pro... and the links still don't work. Yet the same links do work in other PDF readers (Adobe Acrobat, ReadEra, etc). Strange that this app can't interpret external links in the very file it was designed for.

Had an issue with the AT Guide just pulling up a blank white screen. Contacted the developer and within days they had resolved the issue. Great work and I look forward to using this app instead of having to lug a physical copy of the guide in my pack. Thanks!
