This is a TECHNICAL MANUAL , NOT a fun enjoyable book with pictures. If youre trying to decide whether or not to do the trail this would not be the book. This is the technical manual for someone on the trail or with a set plan to go on the trail in the next 30 days. No pictures or anything like that, Just simple illustrations and hard technical information.

This is a great guide. I am about to go on my first A.T. section hike later this Spring and find the information that this provides to be instrumental and extremely helpful. Thanks to the ATC for putting this out! This guide contains shelter info, elevation graphs w/shelter & intersection names, maps of nearby towns with hostel/medical clinic/resupply info, parking advisories, wildlife advisories, and more.

A full journey from Georgia to Maine laid out much like a AAA travel guide. With elevation references and points of interest listed state by state, it is clear why this concise companion is so highly recommended. For a personal touch check out AWOL on the Appalachian Trail by David Miller. He includes a lot of unique 'human' aspects of the trail, providing more than a list of mileages, altitudes, and bunk houses.

But, by no means, is a list of mileages, altitudes and bunkhouses without value. A must for any one who is serious about planning ahead, a necessity for long hikes.

This book is essential for planning an AT hike. We bought it for our daughter and had to return it because it is SO essential, someone else got her one as well.
NOTE: The published price of this book as written in the ISBN coding is only $12.95 despite the Amazon second seller price of between $199 and $3000. This is because there are only so many printed per year, and second sellers snap them up. This is smart on their part. Order it as early in the year as you can and you will pay a lower price.
That being said, it is worth EVERY CENT you have to pay if you are going to thru hike the AT.
