AT info and maps

Definitely an awesome resource for anyone interested in backpacking or just casually hiking parts of the Appalachian Trail.  The Interactive Map is an awesome feature and you can filter the trail by Parking, Vistas (not the best pictures), and Shelters.  If you click on the shelters you can even see a thumbnail and some basic info on them.  Another great feature is the break down state by state on mileage, range of difficulty, and general advice on when optimal times to hike certain areas are.  While backpacking the entire AT has always been a day dream of mine, looking at their Interactive Map really gives a sense of scale to this 2,179 mile, 14 state journey.  If I survive section hiking the NH section this spring, maybe I’ll consider the rest…
