The Appalachian Trail Data Book is essential for A.T. hiking and planning and the over-all best buy in the Ultimate A.T. Store; an indispensable summary of guidebook basics since 1977.
This pocket-sized, paperback handbook is a consolidation of the basic information from all 11 official Appalachian Trail Guidebooks, into a lightweight table of distances between major A.T. shelters, road crossings, and features. The Data Book is divided according to the guidebook volumes and updated each year to account for relocations, new or removed shelters, and other changes. It is also keyed to maps from the official Appalachian Trail Guide Sets.
Batteries not required.
From the back cover:
“…making the Data book an essential source for any Appalachian Trail hiker, whether out for the day or for the long haul of walking from Georgia to Maine in a single journey.
…The mileage information (with elevations for major landmarks) is keyed to both the official A.T. maps and to the guidebook sections – in a state-by-state, at-a-glance format. Shelters, campsites, water sources, road crossings, supply sources, off-trail lodging, eateries, and post offices are all easy to spot in the listings. Whatever distance (or direction) you are walking on the legendary “A.T.” this is your easiest way to see where you are…compared to where you want to go.”
Also available as part of the Thru-Hiker Starter Pack.
Compiled since 1983 by Daniel D. Chazin of Teaneck, N.J., a volunteer with the N.Y.-N.J. Trail Conference. Fortieth Edition, 2017.
