Pocket Profiles are the perfect tool for moment by moment reference on the trail. Weighing in at just 4 grams, these information filled strip-maps features overview Trail Map information on one side and Elevation Profile with altitudes and trail data and town information on the other. Trail data information includes trail mileage, shelter locations, camp sites, water sources, resupply points, lodging, outfitters, medical facilities, post offices, and much more.
This is a serious tool for trail use and hike planning.
The Appalachian Trail series of Pocket Profiles is an abbreviated version of the very popular and most up-to-date trail guide - the A.T. Guide by David "AWOL" Miller. Use the A.T. Guide or other guide books in the shelters or tent at night for reference and use the Pocket Profile on the trail when other guide books would melt in the rain or require a pack-off break to use.
