Maps and Turn-By-Turn Directions
Hiking America is the only set of American Discovery Trail Maps currently available - and continually updated!
Hiking America is the only set of American Discovery Trail Directions for a West Coast to East Coast journey — the original direction when the trail was blazed!
Each Hiking America segment includes turn-by-turn directions with matching map annotations - for an eastbound California to Delaware hike - the direction Hikanation, and later the American Hiking Society trailblazers, used when scouting the original route. In addition, "Trail at a Glance" graphics and crowdsourced Hiker Notes from previous ADT hikers give you a heads up about what's ahead.
But I'm planning a westbound hike?
Not a problem! As with any map, Hiking America's maps make quick work of orienting yourself and your surroundings – with annotations that count you down as you progress through each segment.
Hiking America maps include hundreds of Hiker Notes – previous hiker suggestions on where to eat, sleep, camp, or pick up a resupply. Plus, whom to call in an emergency – or for publicity!
Offline Navigation with GAIA GPS*!
More than just where to turn!
In addition to our maps and directions, Hiking America can share its waypoints with you on Gaia GPS*. Currently, there are over 9000 Waypoints – each synced to Hiking America's collection of maps and turn-by-turn directions.
