Appalachian Trail Guide to Massachusetts-Connecticut
- Item #: 16
Brand new 12th edition now available!
The Appalachian Trail is America's most-storied footpath and the longest marked greenway in the world. It's a magnet for people who seek a day or weekend of adventure in nature. This set, one of 11 official guides to the Appalachian Trail, includes a pocket-sized official guidebook and detached maps for the Massachusetts-Connecticut portion of the trail. The book provides important background information and detailed descriptions of the footpath, overnight shelters, and other facilities. The maps are tear and water-resistant and show road accesses, water sources, and distances for the shorter sections people like to hike over an afternoon or weekend.
The information is compiled by those who know the trail best: private-citizen volunteers in local clubs brought together by the nonprofit Appalachian Trail Conservancy. All proceeds from sales of these official guides support conservation programs that protect the A.T. experience for generations to come.
Included maps cover:
* The Berkshires of Massachusetts (County Road in Vermont to Jug End, Massachusetts)
* Connecticut's Taconic Range and Housatonic River Valley (Warner Mountain in Massachusetts to Mt. Egbert in New York)
