I received these from www.Postholer.com a while ago and I've looked them over. There are some minor errors in them which show more where I am off on some waypoints and need to fix them more than anything. Postholer did a good job with the data I provided. I'm putting them up here with Postholer's blessing so hikers can use them for planning and hiking. One caveat to that is they do not show the other trails that intersect with the BMT very well or at all. In these cases I would HIGHLY recommend that a hiker be extra careful if using these for their sole maps. I would even say that in the GSMNP you would want to also carry one of the $1 trail maps available at the entrance to the park because some intersections could be confusing.

Look at them for where you have already hiked and see what you think. I will say that the Georgia maps are probably the least accurate of the set at the current time. But when you look at them after having hiked it you will probably not notice many (if any) errors.

When I get a rainy day I'm going to re-label them point to point for easier reference.

Update: Postholer has updated the maps to a PDF which makes them easier for looking at and printing. There was also a change to fix declination.

And it is fairly easy too. From about Lost Creek Campsite to Unicoi Gap is smooth sailing.
