This easy-to-use guide will help you discover, by car, 74 access points to the Appalachian Trail, the longest linear park in the world. You will find where it crosses major rivers and the Interstate Highway System. You will be able to drive to significant sites such as the north and south terminals of the Appalachian Trail; historical areas near the Appalachian Trail such as Civil War battlefields; areas of natural interest; the high, low, and mid-points on the Appalachian Trail; the Maine/Canada border crossing of the developing International Extension of the Appalachian Trail as well as many other places of interest. Each site lists tourist information sources (phone numbers and/or websites) and where appropriate short hikes are described. The guide is also intended to help parents introduce their children to some modest hiking and to encourage active people of all ages who love nature and the outdoors to sample parts of the Appalachian Trail—a portion at a time—perhaps as a life-time achievement. The guide will enable anyone to find and follow the trail by car, thereby reawakening them to some of the magnificent wealth of their natural heritage.
