|Potomac Appalachian Trail Club Store
In 1927, PATC was organized
to build the Appalachian Trail in the Mid-Atlantic region of
the U.S. It wasn't long after this effort began that PATC recognized
the need for authoritative guides and accurate maps for the trail
routes. The first maps and guides concentrated on the Appalachian
Trail, but were soon expanded to include side trails and other
regions. This included many routes in what was soon to become
Shenandoah National Park.
Since that time, PATC maps
and guides have become well known as the most authoritative sources
for backcountry information in the region. Each map and guide
builds on a tradition of excellence that started as the first
steps were taken to establish the Appalachian Trail. As an added
benefit, you'll also find club publications that are not typically
carried by commercial outdoor shops and public parks. They are
either considered too specialized in nature, or run against established
policy in regional parks. All are available for sale in our store.
While PATC maps and guides
are highlighted, there are actually over 120 different items
available for sale in our store, including books published from
other sources. Our books, guides, and maps from other sources
have been carefully reviewed and approved by consensus as the
best source of information available in each respective area
The proceeds from every
sale in this store are completely rolled back into our ongoing
volunteer efforts to maintain trails, shelters, and cabins, as
well as purchase land for the protection of trailheads and trail
viewsheds. Unlike "for-profit" book sellers that pocket
their profits, every purchase you make in this store supports
your regional hiking and backpacking opportunties. Your dollars
work twice as hard when you purchase through PATC.
