Alas, we know you might need more information than we can provide here at AppalachianTrail.com. You could -- occasionally -- need to hit the updated website of the Appalachian Trail Conservancy (ATC), the official caretakers of the Trail.

According to the ATC, new features include "a cleaner and more attractive design with fresh photo and video content and updated information [to] explore the Appalachian Trail (A.T.) and prepare for hikes."

(No word yet if they'll focus more on our pal, Julie Judkins, and her work with AT Communities. )

Javier Folger says data about the Trail will come "in a simple yet inspirational way, allowing both novice and advanced hikers to responsibly prepare for any type of adventure on the A.T."

An interactive map of the Trail will provide shelter locations, parking options, etc. Highlights of each of the Trail's 14 states present a mileage overview, elevation profile, fun facts and pictures.

Javier also notes, "Real-time photos from the Trail are streamed to the website when social media users utilize the hashtag #AT2015, allowing the site to be an immersive experience."

Kudos to the ATC!
