WNC Trail Guide
Pisgah Map Company has released a worthy competitor to the more established Trails Illustrated map #780 (for the Pisgah Ranger District). Called the Western North Carolina Trail Guide, the new map covers the South Pisgah Ranger District - but in more detail, with more accuracy, and with some great extra guide information on the back as well including several great mountain bike ride descriptions and elevation profiles. It covers all the trails in the Black Balsam Area. Read our review of the map on the WNCOutdoors.info Blog and be sure to pick up a copy before your next hike. This one is highly recommended!
