I've been doing a bunch of section hikes on the AT and using the The A.T. Guide 2011 (http://www.amazon.com/A-T-Guide-2012-David-Miller/dp/0979708125/ref=pd_bxgy_b_img_b for the 2012 version). I've loved that book and decided to try this one to get the updates since last year and try a different book. While I wasn't disappointed with the content, I was underwhelmed compared to The A.T. Guide. This book has good information in it and I do like that it notes the "sections" of the AT but honestly, I'd suggest buying The AT Guide over this as it provides so much more information than this book.

Again, not a bad book just not as good as another one.

This book needs to be read backwards from the last page to the first page, and from bottom to the top, if you plan on using it going northbound. I have no idea why it's written this way, but it's unnerving to say the least. If you're confused as to what I mean, let me clarify, Mile 0.0 at springer mountain starts at the bottom of page 83 and you read up line by line, and from right page to left page, as you go northbound. It's ridiculous and I can't see how any of the other 6 reviews have not pointed this out. It's almost as if I can have some special southbound data book, but there's no designations, so I'm baffled.

P.s. the last chapter starts on page 84 and it's on the Amicalola Falls Approach Trail. No, I'm serious. The final chapter is on the approach trail. It makes zero sense.

I have only a long weekend without kids this year & I wanted to spend it backpacking. The AT is only a couple of hours from my house but I've never seen it. I've joined online hiking clubs, I've bought books but this is so much better. This is simple to use and you can plan a few days with only a few pages of the book. I love being able to plan out 3 or 4 days without having to carry a big map. I highly suggest investing in this even for day trips! It'll tell you where the next bathroom is & where the next road is in case of emergencies.

Would someone just explain why this book is so expensive? Did I miss something? I have been buying data books for years. What's going on? These are great books that have guided me tremendously on two thru-hikes solo. However, I bought them at cover price, 2012 being the latest. Have I been living underground? Why are they selling for over 140 bucks?

I bought this last year while planning some AT section hikes. Found that I did not use it on the trail, and if you buy the individual guidebooks, it's really not necessary. It is a comprehensive, compact summary, though.

My son started on the trail in January and said it helped him find the water sources and shelters not too mention letting him know if he had the time to make the next shelter
