Description

We created this map with the illusion of 3D by applying Digital Elevation Data and meticulously adding shaded relief to the landscape of the original 1981 Appalachian Trail map. The shading is printed on the paper and not a result of the map protruding from the surface.

Please Note: 

Text on the map can be difficult to read due to the small font size and the age of the map. In areas where the relief shading covers the text, the underlying text is not legible. We suggest the largest size map for better details though the text may still be covered in the darker areas.

If you love this map, you may also like our Appalachian Mountains Range Map.

Beautiful

Great map. Have it framed above my desk. Keeps the flame of excitement about hiking the AT burning. Looked at a lot of AT maps and this was the best.

Appalachian Trail Map

Best map I’ve ever seen that shows the topography of the whole eastern Us revealing the geologic history of the zone. Look up ‘The Fall Line”.
