Good upgrade to the Companion 27. Dezember 2013
Von K. Bennett - Veröffentlicht auf
Just received my 2014 Companion yesterday from the ATC. Disclaimer: I am one of the 40 or so volunteer "field editors" who collect data for this book. I do this to support the Trail, the ATC, and ALDHA. While I have quite the collection of Companions going back about fifteen years, for my personal hiking the last few years I've been mostly using data from several sources including a different guidebook. (Hangs head in shame.) No more. The 2014 Companion is larger, contains more and better data, and -- finally!! -- shows full elevation profile data. The profiles are beatifully formatted, and the scale is consistent from page to page -- each elevation profile shows 23 miles of trail, making it easy to compare elevation gain and loss, and plan ahead for the day or the week.

If you're planning a 2014 Thru-Hike of the Appalachian Trail, this guide provides the information you need to have while planning and hiking the trail. This updated version deserves to be in your pack!

A Good, but not Necessarily Great, Choice 30. Juli 2014
Von Fritz R. Ward - Veröffentlicht auf
Verifizierter Kauf
This book will get you to Maine, in style, but it perhaps should not be your first choice. During my experience on the Appalachian Trail this summer (long section hike) I used both the print and electronic version of the Thru-Hikers' Companion. The information you need is here. A mile point to mile point description of the trail, replete with a full listing of services near each road crossing, all shelters, and the distance from one shelter to the next, including miles walked on blue blaze side trails, are all included in this guide. Symbols are easy to read and interpret. Text, which follows the milepost descriptions, is clearly written and up to date. Also, new for this edition is an elevation profile for the trail that is usually easy to read (the first profile for Pennsylvania appears in the Maryland section of the trail).

So, with all this going for the book, you would think that I would give it 5 stars, but I simply can't. The most common errors in the text are in the listed elevations. In some cases, these are off by more than a thousand feet, which leads to some strange results, like the summit of Bearfence Mountain being 600 feet lower than the road crossing of Skyline Drive before the climb. But the other thing I noticed on the trail was that most hikers were using the AWOL guidebook instead of this one, and this was most especially true of the Thru-Hikers. There were several reasons for this, not least of which is that the print of the text is larger in the AWOL guide. (This is why I eventually opted to use the e version, where expanding text size is easy.). But AWOL also has certain other advantages, such as listing the mileages, not just to the next shelter, but the next several shelters. And it has a more complete listing of services: friends I met on trail ordered pizza to a shelter in Maryland (and I followed their example) because the AWOL guide listed the phone number to the pizza store that delivered to the trail. My companion did not. So, the bottom line is that while this guide can be very useful for planning, I'm not sure it is currently the best.

OK but no A.W.O.L 14. September 2014

Used this along side A.W.O.L.s guide last week in lower PA hike of AT. The elevation maps are nice. However the details are not as comprehensive as the A.W.O.L. guide when identifying crossroads and other points of interest along the trail. Also the print is too small a font for my eyes.

A little confusing 3. März 2014
Von Holly E Pschigoda - Veröffentlicht auf

The information didn't follow along with the maps, so I had a hard time figuring out where things were. But there's a lot of really good information. If you're planning on the whole thing I'd get it, otherwise the section hike-thru books, which are divided by state are even better.

I like the new style in this book over past years. Very detailed information about what stores and hostels are in each town, where to get supplies, locations, addresses.,etc.
