The New York-New Jersey edition covers 173.5 miles from Kent, Connecticut, to Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area on the New Jersey-Pennsylvania state line in one guide and four maps on two sheets. The pocket-sized planning guide contains background and interpretive information, points of interest, general advice, shelters, water sources, and road crossings. The omnidirectional format allows you to see where you are whether southbound or northbound. Each map is focused on the Appalachian Trail and overlaps with the neighboring maps. The surrounding area, out to about three miles, and additional side trails are also included. An easy-to-use elevation profile shows ups and downs and the distance to the next campsite or shelter, side trails, and water sources. For added interest, maps indicate federal or state lands, 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.
