    Default Elevation Profile of GSMNP

    Does anyone have a different scale "elevation profile" other than what is on the National Geographic Map? Thanks!

    I recently developed one of my own for the northern half, for my upcoming section hike. I'm so geeky.......

    Hope you have mountain climbing gear to get to Pinnacle Lead.

    Yeah, the smoothed lines on Excel didn't help me much there. You should have seen it before I checked that option!

    I did note that for whatever reason, the axis labels didn't come through on the screenshot. Miles on the x-axis, 1000 feet per line on the y-axis. So it's not as bad as it looks (I keep telling myself).

    Thanks Hikes in Rain. Too bad you didn't do that for the South half. Good job.

    Give me time......

    Didn't think of it earlier, but I could post the (3.8 meg!) spreadsheet itself.

    deeddawg,

    What a great link. Awesome. "Hikes in Rain" got me motivated to do something.....so I scanned all the elevation profiles out of the Southern Appalachians book just for the AT in the Smokies. I put it in a MS Word Doc. 300k doc. If you would like to see it please email me. Both your's and Hikes in Rain are very helpful. Thanks!

    Thanks, but the site is not mine -- it's just something I found and bookmarked.

    Scanners and Word...two of my most useful tools. Right up there with a putty knife.
