The Bailey Gap to Calf Mountain Topographic Map Guide makes a perfect traveling companion when traversing the central Virginia section of the Appalachian Trail (A.T.). The A.T. in central Virginia falls mostly within National Forest land, traveling through mature forests and over high mountain summits. The trail becomes more difficult as hikers go farther south, traversing the A.T.’s northernmost balds, past interesting rock formations, and over notable peaks, such as the Priest, McAfee Knob, and Dragon’s Tooth.
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 ‘thru-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.
