After completing our work last month, creating maps for every square mile of the American Discovery Trail, our focus continues on everyday Turn-By-Turn improvements and ADT Guide Waypoints on Gaia GPS.  

The numbers continue to amaze us.  One hundred thirty additional waypoints just in the last month! We can thank enough the dozens of you who have helped and supported The ADT Guide these previous three years, both on and off the trail – and continue to do so.
