Our club’s goal is to provide the most accurate hiking-related information available on our AT section. See the map below for the specific section of the AT that our club maintains, a total of more than 120 miles.
In addition, as AT hikers ourselves, we’ve found the resources below helpful. If there is information you need that you are unable to find, please and we’ll get back to you as quickly as possible.
