Overview

The official guide to 302 miles of the Appalachian Trail, from Damascus, Va., near the Tennessee line south to the southern end of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park at Fontana Dam, N.C. The six detached maps (three sheets) included in the packet are water- and tear-resistant in seven colors at a scale of an inch to a mile, with elevation profiles. This area includes the spectacular southern balds, the majestic Highlands of Roan, and Cherokee National Forest, as well as the most-visited of the traditional national parks. The book includes detailed trail descriptions as well as thorough background information on towns, archival photographs, historical sites, and geology. Vic Hasler (northeastern Tennessee), Leonard Bernstein (east-central Tennessee and parts of North Carolina), and Richard Ketelle (Smokies) are longtime, active volunteers with their respective Appalachian Trail clubs, who know the sections best because they help maintain them.
