Whether you’re starting at the Canadian border and thru-hiking the 3100-mile Continental Divide Trail, trekking from Glacier National Park in Montana to the Big Hatchet Mountains of New Mexico, or just taking an evening stroll through a local park, we hope you will find this edition a useful companion.
Sturdy forest-green linen covers with an application of orange Crown Foil surround 48 Ruled “vanilla” pages, and they’re bound together with orange staples. Each of the books features one of America’s “Big Three” trails: The Pacific Crest, Continental Divide, and the mighty Appalachian. In addition, a flyleaf is filled with facts, tips, and a “General Guide to Life on the Trail.”
