6. Maryland/Northern Virginia
7. Shenandoah National Park
8. Central Virginia
11. Tennessee/North Carolina
12. North Carolina/Georgia
13. Appalachian Trail Data Book
A consolidation of the most basic guidebook information into a lightweight
table of distances between major Appalachian Trail shelters, road-crossings,
and features--divided according to the guidebook volumes and updated each
December to account
for Trail relocations, new (or removed) shelters, and other changes.
14. Appalachian Trail Thru-hikers' Companion
The Appalachian Trail Conference and a group of A.T. thru-hikers collaborate
on a guide especially designed for potential thru-hikers who want the
basicinformation for a five- to six-month trek in the woods, at a reasonable
price, but also want the adventure of finding out the extras for themselves.
With research by more than a dozen thru-hiker volunteers in 14 states, backed
by the first-hand information of the
Trail's volunteer and staff maintainers and managers.
All of the above can be ordered from the ATC's Ultimate Trail Store:
There MAYBE another one, The Thru-Hikers Handbook.

<< My opening salvo into the campfire convo is this: how many AT guides are
published, and by whom? In all the hubub about WF's guide and the
"official" guide and Rose's (who?) Maine guide, I can't seem to get a
handle on which I should look for.
Anyone want to do a simply listing, with some short reviews about each
