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 Smoky 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.
