The Appalachian Trail (AT) Map Pack Bundle of New Jersey, New York, Connecticut, Massachusetts includes two Topographic Map Guides that cover the AT from the Pennsylvania border in the south to the Vermont state line in the north. The trail through New Jersey and New York is surprisingly rugged, and much more remote than one would imagine given its proximity to large population centers. As the trail leaves New York it skirts the northwest corner of Connecticut and traverses what remains of a once mighty mountain range. The hiking is moderate through Connecticut and the climbs are short, but can be steep. As the trail crosses into Massachusetts, it enters the Berkshires, characteristic of wooded hills, outstanding views with pleasant, flat hiking along the Berkshire plateau.
Each AT 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.
