2011 Handbook

The Thru-hiker's Handbook will merge with "Awol's" AT Guide in 2011. David "Awol" Miller will produce the 2011 edition of the new book, which will go under the name of the AT Guide. The new book will largely follow the format of the 2010 edition of the AT Guide, but will incorporate much of the more detailed information available in the Thru-hiker's Handbook.

For an up-to-date guidebook of the AT, I recommend the 2011 AT Guide. It may be purchased at
