On this page you can download 19 chapters of the MST guide. Each chapter provides detailed information about one of the 18 segments of the trail or the alternate paddle route. (To learn more about the location of each trail segment, visit the trail segment page of this website, or click on the checkbox “trail segments” on the interactive Google map.)  The guides are available in print as three regional trail guides in our online store or at booksellers and outdoor stores.

In addition to the trail guides, we have partnered with The Hiking Project to provide mapping, downloadable gps tracks, and other hiking information for the MST. Get the entire trail or see individual segments below.

Please send comments and suggestions about the guides to Jim Grode, Trail Resource Manager, at jgrode@mountainstoseatrail.org.
