The North Carolina-Georgia edition covers 238 miles from the eastern end of the Great Smokey Mountains National Park through the Nantahala and Chattahoochee National Forests to Springer Mountain, Georgia. This set includes one planning guide and four water- and tear-resistant maps on two sheets (scale, 1:63,360), plus a National Geographic map of Great Smokey Mountains National Park (scale, 1:62,500). 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 North Carolina-Georgia are also available for sale as a set (#135) and the National Geographic Great Smokey Mountains National Park map is available separately (#134).

At this time I can only section hike and this gives me the information to plan where my wife has access to drop me off and pick me up. I know the miles I need to walk between shelters and side paths to take for a view or supplies if needed.
