The Newfoundland section of the IAT/SIA has been added to the FarOut trail guide app for long-distance hikers! With over 700km/450mi of “main” trail and 280km/175mi of backcountry “routes”, the Newfoundland section includes some of the most dramatic scenery and challenging hikes on the entire IAT/SIA in North America.

Newfoundland joins IAT/SIA guides for Maine, New Brunswick and Quebec which were released in 2020 along with Prince Edward Island and Nova Scotia which were released earlier this year.

For those unfamiliar with FarOut Guides (formerly known as “Guthook”), they were first developed as an iPhone app in 2012 by AT thru-hiker (and Maine native) Ryan Linn and have become the most widely used trail app for long-distance hikers in the years since.

The app allows hikers to download detailed, up-to-date maps and information on campsites, water sources, resupply opportunities and more to any smart phone. Additionally, users can share information about current trail conditions, hiker-friendly towns or places to get a good hamburger.

To get more information on purchasing the IAT/SIA guides visit the FarOut website.

The guide app downloads everything to a hiker’s phone, so a cellphone signal is not required on the trail – unless a user wants to report that the Blue Moose Restaurant in Monticello, Maine is closed on Mondays.

The Newfoundland sections is available for $14.99 (USD). The original Maine and New Brunswick sections are available for $7 (USD) each and the Quebec section is $13. You can buy all six sections for $41.99 – the thru hiker special! For more information visit the FarOut website.
