The Appalachian Trail (A.T) is America’s most-storied footpath and the longest marked greenway in the world, a magnet for people who seek a day or weekend of adventure in nature. Inside this box are detached maps for North Carolina-Tennessee portion of the A.T. The maps are tear-and water-resistant with a scale of an inch to a mile. They include precise elevation profiles mileage logs for major trail landmarks (including shelters and other overnight sites), emergency telephone numbers, water sources, parking areas and side trail.
The information is compiled by those who know the trail best: private citizen volunteers in local clubs brought together by the nonprofit Appalachian Trail Conservancy. All proceeds from sales of these official guides support conservation programs that protect the A.T. experience for generations to come.
