The official Appalachian Trail maps are essential hiking materials for both thru and section hikers. Each map is focused on the Appalachian Trail and overlaps with the neighboring maps, ideal for long-distance hikes and planning. The surrounding area and additional side trails are also included. An easy-to-use elevation profile shows the distance to the next campsite or shelter, side trails, and water sources. For added interest, maps indicate road crossings, waterfalls, and scenic areas. Maps are both water- and tear-resistant.
The North Carolina-Georgia edition covers from Fontana Dam through the Nantahala and Chattahoochee National Forests to Springer Mountain, Georgia. This set includes four maps on two sheets.
The official Appalachian Trail maps for North Carolina-Georgia are also available for sale in an official Appalachian Trail Guide Set (#111) for more in-depth planning.
Proceeds from the sale of these maps go back into the protection of the Appalachian Trail experience through volunteer-based conservation led by the ATC, a private, non-profit organization founded in 1925 to create this treasured footpath, now part of the national park system.

The map is very good.. The only problem that I have is trying to figure out which map to buy. On the website I did not find a key for seeing just what area the map covered. It says, North Carolina/Georgia, and while I did not think that it would cover the whole two states, I was disappointed to find out how little it does cover. I did see the reference to the beginning and ending point, but I did not know where to get that information. Possibly I could have found the info I needed, but I just didn't know how. Anyway, the maps are very good and I simply ordered the adjourning set. Obviously I wasn't too disappointed. Thank you for making these maps available.

I've owned several maps of the AT in years past and thought I would update my GA stash. Maps are water resistant as expected and easy to navigate. I would recommend if you're just section hiking!
