One of the best resources for planning a PCT hike
Like variety of info available.
An Incredible Asset If you're getting ready to hike the PCT, your research will reveal Halfmile's and Guthook's PCT apps as the apps to have on the trail. If you can afford it, this app is an incredible asset and far more detailed than Halfmile's. I haven't regretted dropping the dough in my 500+ miles of hiking so far. It matches well with the water report, provides accurate mileage information, shows pictures of tentsites on the trail, and provides a digital register at each marker. Highly recommended!
Great app and customer service I had an issue with having separate JMT app and PCT apps. They helped me combine them into the PCT app so I didn't have to have two separate apps. Fast response from customer support. Love having all my maps/trails in one app. I do miss the mileage markers though. I liked being able to quickly count where I'll be if I hike say 5 more miles for example. Not having them does clean up the map though.
Worth every penny. You certainly don't need this app to hike the PCT, but the convenience and detail it provides makes it the best option available. The pictures and user comments are especially helpful. Put your phone in airplane mode and turn on the GPS, and you can use it all day with very little impact on your phone's battery.
