When we create a Ramble map, our goal is to show the beauty of the landscape as best we can. We want you to see the hills, valleys, rivers, and transitions between ecosystems. Each map shows something unique. Each area has something surprising, even to those who know it well.
This map is a 2-dimensional print that is ready to hang right out of the box on a backing that will float it off the wall, giving it a nice shadow like in our pictures.
The Appalachian Trail is possibly the most famous hiking trail in the world. It follows the ancient Appalachian mountain range for 2,200 miles as it swoops through the eastern United States. Each year thousands of hopefuls begin their attempt to complete the trail and millions more hike segments of it.
Since the trail's completion in 1937, hikers have been able to see from the ground how the environment changes throughout the journey. This map shows that environment in a snapshot from above. It is a shaded relief elevation map that follows the Appalachian Trail from Springer Mountain in Georgia to Mount Katahdin in Maine. This format makes it clear how spectacular this hike really is.
We hope it will be a treasured reminder of peoples' experiences on the trail, and an aspirational motivator for those looking forward to it!
Each map is made to order in the USA and will arrive in 1 to 3 weeks.
This option maximizes contrast and detail, resulting in a stunning image that catches the light as you move around it.
The map is printed on metallic photographic paper and then 1/4" of acrylic glass is mounted to the front of it. It is our highest quality option.
The wood mounted map has a rustic, understated, and classy feel to it.
This option looks great in the widest range of lighting setups. It feels the most natural and physical of all of the options. The wood mounted map has a matte finish, so it reflects less light than the other options.
The aluminum map looks sleek, smooth, and modern. It has a high-gloss surface, which gives it deep colors, high contrast, and vibrancy. Under good lighting, this map is truly eye-catching.
This option is light weight and has a lower price than acrylic, at a slightly lower resolution.
