National Geographic has come out with some new maps for 2009. They now have maps in Georgia, which not only cover the AT starting at Springer Mtn, but they also have the entire Bartram trail and a good portion of the Foothills trail. As any seasoned outdoorsman can tell you, a good map is invaluable in the back country. I trust Nat. Geo. maps for their accuracy, but they are also printed on waterproof, rip proof paper which means they last forever.
