Turn your smartphone into a powerful navigation tool with the FarOut Guide to the Pacific Northwest Trail.
Since 2018, the PNTA has partnered with Atlas Guides in the production of a smartphone hiking guide to the Pacific Northwest National Scenic Trail. The official hiking app of the Pacific Northwest Trail Association is available now with the same features and performance hikers and riders have trusted from FarOut Guides (formerly Guthook Guides) to navigate six other National Scenic Trails since 2012.
The app is NOW AVAILABLE for iPhone and Android devices.
The FarOut Guide to the Pacific Northwest Trail uses the GPS unit on your iPhone or Android device to create a powerful navigation tool. The official hiking guide app is revised annually to reflect the latest changes to the dynamic trail corridor of the PNT.
No technology can replace navigation skills — take our free print maps with you too.
This powerful new tool will aid in the navigation of the Pacific Northwest Trail when used along with our free, PNTA strip maps. Even experienced backpackers are surprised by how challenging it can be to follow the Pacific Northwest Trail. At this early stage of development, most of the PNT is not marked, and the correct combination of paths is usually not obvious.
The new FarOut Guide will help hikers and riders stay found on the PNT, but no technology can replace real navigation skills. The PNTA strongly recommends carrying multiple navigation tools and having the knowledge to use them to traverse the Pacific Northwest Trail.
