Backpacking Pennsylvania
by Jeff Mitchell

Pennsylvania has the most extensive system of backpacking trails of any state east of the Mississippi River.

Q: Does this book contain maps of the trails?

A: Yes, there are maps included in Backpacking Pennsylvania. However, the maps of the trails are not very detailed. If you are an experienced backpacker, the maps provided are probably adequate as they show the general route of the trail, trailheads, and approximate location of campsites and views. If you aren't a seasoned veteran when it comes to backpacking, or if you are detailed oriented, you may want to get a guidebook and/or map dedicated to your trail of interest.
