The official Appalachian Trail maps are essential hiking materials for both thru and section hikers. Each map is focused on the Appalachian Trail and overlaps with the neighboring maps, ideal for long-distance hikes and planning. 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.
Map 7: Appalachian Trail in West Virginia and Northern Virginia; Potomac River & Harpers Ferry, WV to VA-7.
Published by Potomac Appalachian Trail Club: 1:50,000-scale, 100 foot contour interval topographic maps. GPS compatible. Revised 2013.
The official Appalachian Trail maps for Northern Virginia are also available for sale or in an official Appalachian Trail Guide Set (#106) with Maryland for more in-depth planning.
Proceeds from the sale of these maps go back into the protection of the Appalachian Trail experience through volunteer-based conservation led by the ATC, a private, non-profit organization founded in 1925 to create this treasured footpath, now part of the national park system.

I ordered the S VA set that came with a guide book...which was great. I wanted to get a similar set for N VA and just ordered the 2 maps. I called and learned that you can’t buy the guide book by itself...you have to buy the whole set together. Very disappointed. The maps are good, but the guide is also helpful. I would advise ordering the set....not just the map.
