Overview

The official guide to almost 300 miles of the Appalachian Trail from the Virginia line near the small town of Damascus, through the Roan Highlands of northeastern Tennessee and along the North Carolina border all the way through Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the longest stretch of high-elevation terrain of the whole 2,178-mile footpath. The book includes descriptions of the route (unidirectional format), along with natural and cultural history. The detached topographical, shaded-relief maps include a four-map set (on two sheets) scaled at 1:63,600 with 100-foot contour intervals for the stretch north of the park and the five-color, two-sided map of the park at 1:62,500 published by National Geographic Trails Illustrated in cooperation with the Appalachian Trail Conference. All maps have GPS-checked elevation profiles. The maps north of the park were the first for hiking to be generated by ATC's geographical-information systems (GIS) office.
