White Mountain Guide: White Mountain National Forest Centennial Edition

In 2018, AMC salutes the White Mountain National Forest’s centennial and, just a decade older, the 110th anniversary of our own quintessential White Mountain Guide. To honor both of these very special benchmarks, we present a deluxe volume of the White Mountain Guide, 30th Edition, reminiscent of vintage AMC guidebooks past: clothbound and embossed, in an elegant slipcase, featuring a waterproof, pocket-sized trail journal and a waterproof set of our White Mountains Trail Maps. This special offer, our first hardback edition of the White Mountain Guide since its own centennial edition in 1976, is available only through AMC in a limited run, with all proceeds funding AMC’s mission of protecting the Northeast outdoors. Order your deluxe edition today and pass down your love of the White Mountains.

Now in print for 110 years, AMC’s comprehensive White Mountain Guide remains hikers’ most trusted resource for trails in the magnificent White Mountain National Forest and surrounding regions. This commemorative hardcover 30th edition has been thoroughly updated and revised post-Tropical Storm Irene, with accurate descriptions of more than 500 trails, as well as trip planning advice, safety information, and a checklist of New Hampshire’s 4,000-footers. New to the 30th edition are at-a glance icons for suggested hikes and redesigned, easier to-follow statistics for all trails, charting cumulative distance, elevation, and time between waypoints. This boxed set also contains durable, waterproof-Tyvek versions of six pull-out topographic maps, updated to reflect the latest trail openings, closings, and reroutings. Redesigned with bolder, clearer colors and GPS-charted by AMC’s cartography department, these maps include trail-segment mileage; hut, lodge, camping, and shelter locations; wilderness-area boundaries; AMC shuttle stops, and more. Only available with this commemorative edition is a pocket-sized, waterproof trail journal that can accompany you on all of your adventures, from waterfall day hikes to backpacking treks through the Great Gulf Wilderness to section hikes along the Appalachian Trail. The White Mountain Guide is your quintessential resource for adventure in the White Mountain National Forest, and this special edition helps ensure that forest’s trail maintenance for the next 100 years.
