This is the bible for OHT hikers. There is a complete mile-by-mile description of this 164-mile trail, which has been rated as one of the Top-Ten hiking trails in the United States. The book has eight maps and elevation profiles, nine mileage logs, information on campgrounds, trailhead parking areas, hunting and fishing, scenic spots, historical features, a month-by-month weather guide, plus lots of info that you'll need to hike this wonderful trail. Now includes separate maps and complete descriptions of five connecting trails too, PLUS a map and complete description of the newest section of the OHT - the Sylamore Section, a 31-mile stretch that was constructed in early 2003. The foreword was written by former Senator Dale Bumpers.
