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.
The Tennessee-North Carolina edition covers 302 miles from Damascus, Virginia, near the Tennessee state line to the southern end of the Great Smokey Mountains National Park at Fontana Dam, North Carolina, including parts of the Cherokee and Pisgah National Forests. This set includes four maps on two sheets.
The official Appalachian Trail maps for Tennessee-North Carolina are also available for sale in an official Appalachian Trail Guide Set (#110) 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.

The Georgia and North Carolina Maps I purchased a few (5-6) years ago are superior in every way to the new maps.
I was disappointed when my new maps arrived.
The map starting into the Smokies doesn't seem to overlap with my old North Carolina map.

Maps of the AT from the ATC are by far the most reliable, most useful, and easiest to use. The included elevation profile is indispensable.
I've only used maps from another source once...won't do that again.
ATC sourced maps are the absolute best.

The maps are missing the Smokey Mountains. The NC Georgia maps also do not have it. I purchased the Smokey mountains map from the National Park services and it is ok but does not have water sites.

Has numerous updates since the map I used on a 2005 thru-hike was published.

I am grateful that this is a topographical map and also for the showing of parking lots, shelters, and other information necessary for planning.
A friend and I will be hiking for three days in April and this map gives us everything that we need for planning and anticipating the hike. Thank you for this great product.
