If you're someone who knows how to properly use a map, these maps aren't for you. Sections 1-8 (middle to top of trail in PA) maps don't have gridlines. This seriously limits their usefulness as, well, maps! So even if you know your location (10 digit grid from GPS) you can't accurately find that point on the map. Or even if you know your spot on the map, you can't shoot an azimuth to a destination because the maps aren't oriented to true north and you have no gridlines to be able to accurately orient your protractor against.
If you've never used a good map and just want to see where parking and water sources are located, these maps might suit your needs. But if you're accustomed to a good map (like a military map) these will just piss you off, as they have me.
