The New York-New Jersey edition covers 174 miles from Kent, Connecticut, to Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area on the New Jersey-Pennsylvania state line in one planning guide and four water- and tear-resistant maps on two sheets. The pocket-sized planning guide contains background information, points of interest, and general advice. The omnidirectional format allows for the inclusion of shelters, water sources, and road crossings. Each map is focused on the Appalachian Trail and overlaps with the neighboring maps. 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 official Appalachian Trail maps for New York-New Jersey are also available for sale as a set (#120).

These are well made maps, The paper is sturdy, moisture resistant, folded to work with small sections. The mag north declination is a little off, but if the map were updated every year, it would be a lot more expensive - so go online and update the declination yourself. It's a good exercise. I like these for planning, reviewing, and reminiscing. And, candidly, they just look cool and feel good.
