Waypoints updates – summer 2022
The hiking season is in full swing, and for CLDT this year is very important because for the first time since the conception of the trail we have the highest number of active walkers.
For the last couple of months we have been working on waypoints updates in FarOut mobile & web apps and now we can finally announce the changes 🙂
Thanks to feedback from the hikers, in addition to minor modifications to existing waypoints, we added 164 new waypoints.
- section A – 7 new waypoints (1 related to bivouacs / shelters and 6 related to water on the trail)
- section B – 40 new waypoints (16 related to bivouacs / shelters, 17 related to water on the trail, 3 new waypoints related to various services (shops, cafes …) and 4 related to other important facilities on the trail)
- section C – 117 new waypoints (50 related to bivouacs / shelters, 50 related to water on the trail, 4 new waypoints related to various services (shops, cafes …) and 13 related to other important facilities on the trail).
Long story short – please go ahead and update the FarOut Guides mobile app by opening the app and going to Download manager where you can tap the “Check for updates” button which will update the waypoints inside the app.
If you are on the trail now and are hesitant to update the app we suggest you get to a camping spot and update the app to study the changes when you are done with your stretch that day.
If you are experiencing problems with updating the app we suggest you visit the FAQ section on FarOut Guides’ website.
As CLDT is trail in the making there are bound to be some kinks here and there so if you encounter some troubles on the trail please contact us and make a note of that in the application by adding a comment on existing waypoint or by creating a new one. Your feedback and comments in the app are what allow us to keep improving the trail experience for all of us. Find out more about how you can help us improve the trail.
Happy trails from the CLDT team!
