The Appalachian Trail GPS waypoint data currently consists of overnight shelter locations directly on or near the A.T and is derived from the 2009 data provided by the AppalachianTrail.org. (Previously used 2002 GPS data from waypoint files please see the use conditions at that site. To the 2002 I had added GPS data for Churchill Scott, Wayah Shelter, Hurricane Mountain Shelter 5/2004, Mountaineer Shelter 4/2007, Bromley Shelter 4/5/09, and Pickle Branch, Gooch Mountain, Roaring Fork, High Point, Ore Hill 4/20/09, and Byrds Nest 3 3/12/10. ) The trail overlay is based on the 2009 ATC centerline data. For the latest mileages and shelter status, please visit the Appalachian Trail Conservancy and see the AT Data Book.

Here is a plot of the elevation profile of the AT shelters. At 6275' Roan High Knob Shelter is the highest shelter on the AT, and Ten Mile River Lean-to is the lowest at 290'. The average distance between shelters is 7.8 miles, and the max distance is 31.2 miles between Kirkridge and Brink Road shelters. Each entry in the table above has an elevation profile of the trail between shelters based on this elevation data.
