Jeff Chow mapped the entire Appalachian Trail for Backpacker magazine. The project is one for a series of recreational communities throughout the Appalachian chain of mountains from New England to Georgia, these to be connected by a walking trail. Thus wrote Benton MacKaye (pronounced muh-KYE) in 1921, in what was to become the unofficial manifesto of the Appalachian Trail. Its purpose is to establish a base for a more extensive and systematic development of outdoor community life, he continued. It is a project in housing and community architecture.

very detailed. I'm not a hiker, but I live near parts of the AT, and this book is really good armchair traveling

Good book about the Appalachian Trail, but it is not as detailed about the trail as the AT Conference guides. Each chapter covers the geology and history of that section of the trail before giving a description of the trail in that section and points of interest. Read this before going on the trail to understand what you will see and the history of that area. Not to be used to walk the trail since it does not have the detail for that.

Maybe useful to section hikers. Did not contain information that I considered helpful to
those planning a thru hike. Would not have purchased Backpacker Magazine's Guide to the Appalachin Trail, had I know it was written primarily for Section Hikers. A quote from page 13, "One comment I've had over the years about the book is that people wonder why I don't give more information about thru-hiking. I answer that thru hiking was never the purpose of the book and that the people I really wanted to talk to were day hikers and other short term users of the AT". From the Second Edition by Jim Chase. Title of the book should be "Day Hikers guide to the Appalachain Trail".

I actually had this book with me on the Appalachian trail for a month. Although it was not as exciting as many other trail novels and stories, it was full of fun facts . Many things I learned in this book I never read in any other trail literature. A must read for any trail enthusiast.

A great deal of basic information on how to hike the AT. This is a great starting point if you have the desire to hike as a thru or section hiker.

Thank you!

This well-written book is not only useful, but it's also fun to read. The author obviously did a ton of research on the formation of the trail, its founders, and its purpose -- a linear park system accessible to city-dwellers on the east coast.

Mr. Chase includes a lot of useful information about sections of the AT, but this book is not one you'd use in place of a map or a trail guide. Instead, it characterizes the sections state-by-state, giving readers an idea of the feel of the terrain and what it's like to hike each part. It's really useful when picking a section for a trip, and to give hikers some very satisfying background information on the guys who thought up our beloved AT! The newly updated edition of the book also improved on the information included in the older version.

If you just want a trail guide, look elsewhere. But if you're looking for a book that puts the AT in context and helps pick areas for dayhikes or longer section hikes, this is the book for you!
There are no maps. The info is presented north to south. It is written in prose and you are unable to navigate the book by trail section. Very different from the book description. I returned it almost immediately. I just spent 5 days on the AT with someone who had AWOL's data book which was very helpful.
