The NEW fourth edition of the Hiking Guide to the Allegheny Trail is now available.

It is a spiral-bound, easy-to-use trail guide, protected with a vinyl cover. It has excellent maps and detailed descriptions of the trail route as well as Allegheny Trail amenities.

The guide is a thorough description of all major (and some minor) turns along the trail. It includes information on panoramic views of the countryside, water and campsites, notes on local flora, interesting historical sites on or near the trail, and where to find groceries and other amenities.

Extensive information on the flora and fauna you can expect along the trail will soon be available in the new Wildlife Watching Guide, available for a reasonable price as a download.

If you plan a through hike or even a less extensive long-distance hike, you will want the hiking guide.

Keep in mind, however, that the guide is not reprinted every year -- and sections of trail occasionally get relocated; so, if the guide and the blazes don't agree, follow the yellow blazes.

The cost of the guide is $30 plus $4.00 shipping.

Orders are normally processed withing 3 to 5 business days.
