The Pennsylvania edition covers 239 miles from Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area to the town of Pen Mar on the Maryland state line in one planning guide and five water- and tear-resistant maps. 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 Pennsylvania are also available for sale as a set (#121) or individually. See listing above for item number in ().
The guide is published by Keystone Trails Association. Twelfth Edition, 2012.

I was a last minute planner, and these maps came quickly in plenty of time for me to pack them for our trip. They were super helpful--we would have gotten lost without them! The guide was very helpful as well as it had step by step descriptions for those less familiar or less confident in their hiking and directions.
