One of 11 official guides to the Appalachian Trail, each of which includes a pack-sized book and up to seven separate water-resistant maps in a resealable plastic bag. This volume covers the northernmost 281 miles of the famous footpath–from majestic Kathadin in central Maine’s Baxter State Park to the New Hampshire state line. The seven detached, full-color, tear-resistant, two-sided maps include trail descriptions and other hiking-focused information on the backs. The maps are at a scale of an inch to a mile and include elevation profiles and topographical lines. The book concentrates on safety information and background on area history, points of interest, geology, and natural resources.
This guide is published by the Maine Appalachian Trail Club and distributed by the national Appalachian Trail Conservancy.
