Posted March 12, 2019 THIS REMAINS TRUE EVERY YEAR –
By Jerry Brown, Bear Creek Survey, March 2019:
Last summer I accomplished my seventh thru of The Colorado Trail and updated trail data for Atlas “Guthook” Guides. I took 1,465 geo-referenced photographs of the Trail’s waypoints including water sources, intersections, signs, trailheads, and just about any other thing that would help hikers navigate the trail. I also located new water sources in problematic areas where we had never found them before. The data is now with the Atlas “Guthook” Guides programming gurus who are working on updating the app with photos and data. The new version will be available in late April, great timing for this year’s hikers. If you already have the app, the updates are free. If you don’t have it yet, there is no reason to wait until April. App buyers can obtain updates free of charge when each update is released.
A generous portion of proceeds from app sales goes to The Colorado Trail Foundation to assist continuing efforts to maintain the Trail. You can download and play with a demo version at no charge. Search “Colorado Trail Hiker” to find it in the store and look for the official “Guthook” Guide. The demo is limited to Segment 1, but you can get a good idea of whether it is for you. If you decide to buy the app for the entire trail it costs $19.99 with free updates forever. There are both Android and iOS versions available.
