Product Description

The North Carolina-Georgia edition covers 239 miles from the eastern end of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park through the Nantahala and Chattahoochee national forests to Springer Mountain, Georgia. This set includes one guidebook and four maps on two sheets (scale, 1:63,360), plus the National Geographic map of Great Smoky Mountains National Park (scale, 1:62,500). 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.
