The Davenport Gap to Damascus Topographic Map Guide makes a perfect traveling companion when traversing northeastern Tennessee and western North Carolina section of the Appalachian Trail (A.T.). The A.T. in northeastern Tennessee and western North Carolina mostly follows a high, crooked ridgeline across the Southern Appalachians, an area that is known for both its natural beauty and rich history. This mountainous section of trail, which is mostly contained within the Cherokee and Pisgah National Forests, travels across the uplands of the Tennessee Valley, through the scenic Roan Highlands, and along the high ridge that separates Tennessee and North Carolina, deep in the heart of the Appalachian Mountain Range.
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.
