The mailing labels page has a wealth of information for planning a thru--hike or section-hike of the Appalachian Trail. Included is a quick glance at mileage between the most convenient and popular resupply options, and an easy way to print out package labels for mail drops of food, gear, maps and meds, etc.. It also includes a ton of links to other aspects for hiking the trail, a complete list of major and cottage gear manufacturers, as well as journals and videos.
The same wealth of information as the AT Mailing Labels page, only for the CDT.
