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 Southwest Virginia edition covers 170 miles from Pearisburg on the New River to the Tennessee state line south of Damascus, primarily through the George Washington and Jefferson National Forests and including the Mount Rodgers Recreational Area in four maps on two sheets.
The official Appalachian Trail maps for Southwest Virginia are also available for sale in an official Appalachian Trail Guide Set (#109) 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.
