National Geographic Trails Illustrated Maps
The Swatara Gap to Delaware Water Gap Topographic Map Guide makes a perfect traveling companion when traversing the northeastern Pennsylvania section of the Appalachian Trail (A.T.). The trail in this section of Pennsylvania primarily travels across flat, rocky ridges mixed with strenuous climbs in and out various gaps. Between Swatara Gap and Wind Gap, the A.T. weaves in and out of Pennsylvania State Game Lands as it follows the long ridge of Blue Mountain. From Wind Gap north, the A.T. follows the ridge of Kittatinny Mountain on its way to the Delaware Water Gap.
Each A.T. Topographic Map Guide includes detailed topographic maps at a detail of 1 inch = 1 mile. Each page is centered on the A.T. and overlaps with the adjacent pages so there is little chance of getting lost. Along the bottom of each page is a trail profile that shows the distance between shelters, camping areas, and trail access points. The map and trail profile provide a step by step visual guide to hiking the trail, mile by rugged mile. The Topographic Map Guide is built for all levels of hiking enthusiasts, from the day tripper to the multi month 'thru-hiker'. The front pages of the printed Topographic Map Guide include resupply information, town inset maps, camping options, and much more.
