The Springer Mountain to Davenport Gap Topographic Map Guide makes a perfect traveling companion when traversing the Georgia, southeastern Tennessee and southwestern North Carolina, section of the Appalachian Trail (A.T.). The southern most section of the A.T. which starts at Georgia's Springer Mountain and heads north into North Carolina and Tennessee, offers some of most physically challenging, but rewarding hiking along the entire trail. The A.T. through this area is located entirely within National Park and National Forest land, and follows the ridges and balds of the beautiful and biologically diverse Southern Appalachians.
Each A.T. Topographic Map Guide includes detailed topographic maps at a detail of 1 inch = 1 mile. Each page is centered on the A.T. and overlaps with the adjacent pages so there is little chance of getting lost. Along the bottom of each page is a trail profile that shows the distance between shelters, camping areas, and trail access points. The map and trail profile provide a step-by-step visual guide to hiking the trail, mile by rugged mile. The Topographic Map Guide is built for all levels of hiking enthusiasts, from the day-tripper to the multi month through-hiker. The front pages of the printed Topographic Map Guide include resupply information, town inset maps, camping options, and much more.
Every Topographic Map Guide is printed on backcountry-tough waterproof, tear-resistant paper. A full UTM grid is printed on the map to aid with GPS navigation.
