The front section is a mileage guide, much like the Data Book, with single line descriptions of key points, water sources etc. along the trail. There are page references to the more detailed summaries of towns and points of interest which are in the back section. The back section is more of what you'd need once you actually got to that particular point of interest rather than when you're hiking.
I do see your point about everything being in one continuous style rather than being broken up but I did not find it difficult to navigate and use.
