    Compliments. It seems to be a very hard section. Have you done it alone?

    Thank you very much.
    Yes. These sections of the Appalachian Trail in Maine are doing just me, although you know ..... in the AT you're almost never alone. Greetings!

    Thank you in advance
    Bye

    Hi, Giulio!
    The primary source is official guides and maps. There are many (one or more for each State).

    There are also quite a few small guides that concentrate the whole route in a single manual, for example: http://atctrailstore.org/guides-maps/?sort=featured&page=3
    You can also download a computer application and electronic maps.

    All this you can find and buy in
    Http://atctrailstore.org/guides-maps/ or in some specialized mountain shops. You can also find them on Amazon.

    The numbers 170, 158, 54, etc. Is the stage number counted from Springer (Georgia), that is the number of days hiked to that location. Obviously, everyone has their rhythm and prepares the stages in their own way. There are those who hike 20 miles a day or more, and there are those who hike 8 or 10. It depends, not only on the physical form of each one, but also on many other factors, mainly you are looking to start and finish each stage at a road point, or If you decide to stay overnight on the mountain in a shelter, or if you camp freely anywhere.

    Normally, the full AT course is 6 months (about 180 stages), but there are those who complete it in 5 and a half months, and who does it in 6 and a half months or even 7.

    If you need any other information or information, I am at your disposal.

    regards

    It is very kind of you Pablo. These information are more than what I hoped.
    I will carefully read them not to try them on the trail (I don't think) but surely to dream.
    Thank you a lot and have good adventures
    Giulio
