Some Trail Reconnaissance

To make our upcoming backpacking trip as smooth as possible, I've gone ahead and noted various waypoints along the way using Google My Maps. This data came from sites like the Appalachian trail shelter list, hiking logs as well as just inspecting the Google Map itself.

Using GPS Babel, I've taken this Google Maps data and uploaded it into my Garmin Geko. The result? I should be able to find the shelters and other points along the way with a minimum amount of fuss.

If you're hiking the Appalachian trail in the Annapolis Rock area you may actually find this specific map useful.
