Finally, a topographic map set worthy of the Appalachian Trail.

These are not scanned 20-50 year old topos maps.

Here are the details including a preview of all New Hampshire:

The 3 volume Appalachian Trail Map series is created digitally using the most current landcover, hydrology, elevation, etc, data available. Most of the data is less than 6 years old.

Along with absolute clarity, seamless digitized maps mean uniformity in color, style, fonts, textures and unit of measure from Georgia to Maine.

+ 349 full color, digitized topographic maps
+ Beautiful 3D hill shading
+ Useful, highly detailed elevation chart on each map
+ Divided into 23 sections with section overview maps
+ 6" x 9" (15.2cm x 22.9cm) format for easy pack stowage
+ Accumulated trail mileage every mile
+ Resupply locations within 90 miles of map center
+ 1:40,000 scale with WGS84 decimal degree tick marks
+ 7 landcover types, evergreen, deciduous, mixed, shrub, bare, moderate/heavy urban
+ Trail trace, parking and shelter data from
