If you are at all interested in hiking any part of the Appalchian Trail, I would suggest that this book be part of your resources. Hiking the trail isn't a matter of pulling on your shoes and talking a walk. This is a true "test of your inner self" hike on a real forest trail. There are any number of things you need to know before setting out.

The family and I are going to take a day hike later this summer. None of us are long-distance hikers with the exception of the granddaughter-in-law. We are using this book to discuss where we are going and what we will be taking along. Our ages range from one year to 71 so we'll need all the help we can get. The book has provided much help in our discussions.

The book was OK. The problem I found was it is very dated. Published in 1995 there has been a lot of changes some with the trail but mostly with equipment and technology . There is still a lot of good information but I believe there must be something more updated available , although at this time I have not actively looked for it.

The book explains everything possible that could happen while hiking the AT as well as examples of past occurances ie: coming in contact with a bear to the nets to wear during certain seasons in the north east states while hiking to keep the bugs off your face. It explains what you need to bring, what kinds of clothing to the type of cook stoves to use, how to stay warm and how to keep cool whike hiking the trail. It would be my recommendation to have this book for all people who are hiking parts of the AT to those who will be through hiking the AT. Very informative

Nothing really new here, if you've read one of these books, you've kind of read them all. This is one of the better ones however.
