NO PHONE OR INTERNET SERVICE IS REQUIRED to use Guthook's Guides after the initial setup. Guthook's Guides use a combination of your smartphone's GPS, downloaded topo maps, and the Google Maps interface to accurately locate your position on the trail. Your phone's GPS pinpoints your location on the downloaded topo maps.
A bright red line indicates the location of the main trail on the map. Side spurs to water sources or other points of interest are indicated in blue. Waypoints of interest to the hiker are plotted on the map. There are also markers on the map every mile or kilometer of the trail track.
The elevation profile shows trail distance vs elevation and plots your current location on the trail. Each waypoint is plotted on the profile. Each waypoints is clickable, opening to the waypoint's detail page.
The guidebook lists every waypoint in order by distance along the trail and how far away you are from each waypoint.
Send your current location to friends and family via text message, e-mail, facebook or twitter.
Each waypoint includes a detail page, providing further details about that particular waypoint. Details include the waypoint's mileage point and elevation, photographs of the waypoint, distance northbound and southbound to the next water source, 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.
The types of waypoints include:
-->Water sources (including the reliability of each water source)
-->Resupply locations/post offices
-->Tenting sites/camping sites
-->Parking areas along the trail
-->Picnic areas, campgrounds, ranger stations
-->Roads, railroad tracks, power lines, fences, gates
-->Natural landmarks (e.g. mountain passes)
-->Restaurants, stores, libraries, lodging
About the Pacific Crest Trail: The Pacific Crest Trail, or PCT, is the longest completed trail in the world at 2,660 miles. The trail begins at the U.S./Mexico border near Campo, California, and winds its way through California, Oregon and Washington to its northern terminus at the U.S./Canada border near Manning Park in British Columbia, Canada. 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.

Some hot springs are well developed, and are accessed by good road. But most of them exist off the beaten path and open for your exploration. They may be hard to get to and require an extraneous hiking, yet rewarding in their isolation.
Please email us if you have any questions or suggestions. Hope you enjoy the spring soaks.
