In what could arguably be called one of the most scenic sections of the Appalachian Trail, the Appalachian Trail Guide to New Hampshire and Vermont is an invaluable resource for anyone considering hiking the Trail through these two states.
The book includes 8 maps that cover the entire length of the Trail in the two states. Each chapter in the guidebook are indexed to these maps to make it easier to find the trail descriptions or maps of the section that you are considering hiking. The maps are printed on tear-proof and waterproof paper and are of excellent quality. In addition to a topographic map with the trail route shown, you are also given a vertical relief map of the trail route to give you an idea of how much climbing and descending you’ll be doing on a certain section (and in this part of the Trail, it’s up and down an awful lot).
