This guidebook consists of two detached, double-sided maps in a display box for 172 miles of the Appalachian Trail, from Kent, Connecticut, to Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area on the Pennsylvania/New Jersey border. The indexed book contains "omnidirectional" trail descriptions, natural and cultural history of the areas crossed, and information on road crossings, parking, shelters, water sources, points of interest, and general advice. The seven-color maps cover about 40 miles per side. The scale is an inch to a mile, with 50-foot contour intervals for the topography and the essential elevation profiles for the trail route.
