Start here for a quick overview of what The ADT Guide is all about.

Jump-Start the Planning of your Ultimate Hike!

Hey there, welcome to The ADT Guide!  – a collection of tools to help you 'Hike your Hike' on the American Discovery Trail or any of the dozens of trails that make up the ultimate cross country trek.

Maps, turn-by-turn directions, GPS, or any combination!


Maps and Turn-By-Turn Directions

The ADT Guide is the only set of American Discovery Trail Maps currently available - and continually updated!

The ADT Guide 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 ADT Guide 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 comments 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, ADT Guide maps make quick work of orienting yourself and your surroundings – with annotations that count you down as you progress through each segment.

The ADT Guide maps include previous hiker suggestions on where to eat, sleep, camp, or pick up a resupply. Plus, whom to call in an emergency – or for publicity!
