GPS Download for the Appalachian Trail
Following my thru-hike, I started working at an awesome company called Gaia GPS. Since I love the Appalachian Trail, I put together a web page for the Gaia GPS Website that includes the official ATC GPS data for the trail with some added goodies.
The folder contains tracks, waypoints, and elevation data for the AT. If you already use the Gaia GPS app, maps are included, too. To keep it official, I pulled the most recent data from Appalachiantrail.org, which you can see here.
How to Use the Data
You can download the Appalachian Trail GPX or KML file to your desktop, or get a free Gaia GPS account and add it to your personal tracks list. Browse the entire folder, or select state by state.
GPX and KML file formats can be used with most GPS software and apps.
For more instructions about using this data, both with and without the Gaia GPS app, go here.

If a lot of people enjoy this, I can update and add more data based on reader feedback. Leave me a comment with suggestions.
