A little explanation about the links on the left:
The "hiking information" link will point you to articles, information that supplements the Handbook, and links to other sites that you may find useful.
The "handbooks" link will get you to the page where you can order a Handbook and/or download sample pages.
The "forums" are just that -- a place to share information and talk about the trail.
"News and updates" contains updates since the Handbook went to press.
"Articles" are contributed to this site by experienced hikers. They contain lots of useful tips to plan an A.T. hike. Sincere thanks to all contributors.
