ALDHA COMPANION PDF

Oh, happy day! They work with the great folks at the Appalachian Trail Conservancy ATC , which publishes this tremendously helpful resource. In my travels writing about the Appalachian Trail -- from North Georgia to Monson, Rangeley and Millinocket, Maine, and all points in between -- the Companion is my primary guide to trail heads, hostels, restaurants, outfitters and more. Everything hikers need to travel on foot from Springer Mountain to Katahdin is listed. Maps of the Trail, local towns, where to find water, shelters, motels, pizza and "cold ones" reside in its pages. Day-hikers, section hikers and anyone looking for short or long hikes along the Appalachian Trail would be wise to purchase a copy and follow the directions therein.
