The official Appalachian Trail maps are essential hiking materials for both thru and section hikers. Each map is focused on the Appalachian Trail and overlaps with the neighboring maps, ideal for long-distance hikes and planning. The surrounding area and additional side trails are also included. An easy-to-use elevation profile shows the distance to the next campsite or shelter, side trails, and water sources. For added interest, maps indicate road crossings, waterfalls, and scenic areas. Maps are both water- and tear-resistant.
The Central Virginia maps cover 226 miles from Waynesboro to Pearisburg on the New River, including parts of the George Washington and Jefferson National Forests and the Blue Ridge Parkway, with a separate section on day and loop hikes in four maps on two sheets.
