The Appalachian Trail (A.T.) interactive map, built cooperatively by the Appalachian Trail Conservancy (ATC) and National Park Service using Google's mapping technology, allows you to explore multiple dimensions of the A.T. when planning a trip. You can zoom in and see topography, terrain and satellite imagery, as well as view information about and photos of shelters and vistas. It also shows parking locations, which you can get directions to and from with just a couple of clicks of your mouse.
While useful, this map is for general reference purposes only and not intended to replace the more comprehensive and accurate A.T. printed hiking maps, available from the ATC's Ultimate Trail Store.
