Several features make this map really great:
-Easy to read and use and shows the right amount of detail. Campsites, water sources, side trail, and roads are all clearly marked and have been accurate.
-It's easy to switch back and forth between the elevation profile and the topo map because the mileages (in both directions) are shown directly on the map.
|The map indicates campsites, water sources, trailheads, and mileages as well as interpretive information.|
|Elevation profiles with mileages both from N to S (bottom) and S to N (top).|
-Natural history information is tagged on the map, and side bars have blurbs about the flora and fauna and excepts from Bartram's Travels. This provides a deeper appreciation for the history and wonderful areas this trail passes though.
|Numbered tags let you find and read about the plants that Bartram discovered on his travels.|
|Historical excepts allow " the hiker moving forward in space to simultaneously journey back in time"|
Another caveat is that the some of the campsites indicated on the maps are not always suitable for hammock hangers, so a few times I had to hike additional miles to find trees. This probably would have been less of an issue during winter, and of course isn't really a problem with the map, just something to be aware of for fellow hangers.
Overall: this is a lovely map and only wish more trails had maps this informative and well-designed.
Disclosure: I purchased this map with my own funds. The opinions in this review are my own.
