These are the four layers I use when planning a hike and navigating with GaiaGPS.

GaiaGPS is my go-to tool for planning and plotting routes. It always gives me a solid estimate of a hike’s total distance and elevation gain.

Navigating bushwhacks can be tricky. But GaiaGPS offers a lot of help. It has a number of extra layers — some obvious, some not — that help you determine best routes and then stick to them once you’re out and about.

This video walks you through the four best layers I’ve found in Gaia’s mobile app.
