    Default Appalachian Trail track

    Was wondering if anyone might have put together a Garmin/Mapsource track of the AT through Maine and New Hampshire. Hoping to do some hiking/biking and lots of caching on a visit next year. Would love to have a copy of this to check out for caches along the route and be able to do some planning.
    Thanks from Cape Breton Island.

    One other thing to remember too is that geocaches aren't allowed along the AT. You have to venture off the trail to find any caches now.

    There are track files for the entire AT trail. I have them somewhere on my PC, but they are also available online. Try Googling "Appalachian Trail" Track file.

    If you can't get what you know let me know and I'll look for my files.

    I originally the tracks to find caches along the trail. There are a few, but as haffy said, generally are not allowed.

    I'm OK now.
    Did some poking about on line as suggested and picked up what I needed.
    Thanks to all who responded.
    WOW
    Lots of great hiking trails, may have to move to the states for a couple of years.
    Now I just have to talk a cacher or two into heading down with me for the adventure.
    So much to do and see, and life is so short, Rats.

    Just another quisk question.
    Is early June a practical time to do hiking/biking/caching in around Mount Washington and area ? Is the snow gone by then on the mountains and trails ? I assume Maine and Nove Scotia are much similar in weather and should be OK.
