Note that this map is provided by the Park Service when you enter the park.
It is a rough guide, and in some areas is far from an accurate
representation of the actual routes that the trails take. For example, the
Spellman Trail is much more perpendicular to the Pumpelly Trail than shown
here, and its ascent is even steeper than it looks on this map. However, the
trails themselves are usually marked well enough that any discrepancies on the
map can be ignored as far as navigating is concerned; stay on the trails and the
maps are unnecessary anyway, except when choosing your routes--or if you've
started on the wrong trail. The Appalachian Mountain
Club (AMC) provides a map that seems to be much more accurate, and at a larger
scale(1:9000). It is available at the Park Store in the Headquarters area, as
well as at Eastern Mountain Sports (EMS) and other stores, usually with a
guidebook to the mountain.
