White Mountain Guide Online shutting down

The AMC is discontinuing the WMG Online site as of the end of September. Currently, they’re no longer accepting new subscriptions. If you have saved routes, they’ll continue to be accessible until the end of September, but expect them to be gone after that. Similarly, if you were thinking about a trip, time to start drawing up and exporting maps.

Current subscribers will get prorated refunds as appropriate.

Right now, the only substitute I know of is CalTopo. (https://caltopo.com/) It’s not a perfect substitute. You won’t be able to draw routes automatically by trail head, huts, and so on. But it’s not bad. If anyone knows of a good resource, feel free to chime in.

I think this is a bummer. On the one hand, yes, it was an imperfect resource. But at the same time, I found it to have a lot of utility in planning my hikes up the 48. If anyone from the AMC is reading this, please bring back the WMG Online with better functionality soon.
