Melton and updated in 2017, these books offer up to date and comprehensive trail information. Most importantly, they do not require batteries or Internet connections. Just tuck your trail guide into your backpack and use it as your grandfather did.
However, for the GPS minded, these books are designed to be used used with the companion website http://lincoln-nf-trails.org so you get the best of both worlds.
