The Florida Trail's equivalent to AWOL's AT Thru-Hiker's Handbook or Yogi's PCT Handbook. It combines both mileage figures like the Data Book along with town maps and

Florida Trail Data Book - seventh edition
by The Florida Trail Association / edited by Don Mock
Like all data books, this is a bare-bones mileage chart with campsites, water sources, road crossings, trailheads, et cetera. No town info. Should be used in tandem with the official maps. When new editions are released, it happens in the late fall, so wait till November or December to get it.
Don't buy any of these guidebooks. They are all out-of-date and out-of-print. However, they may appear in web and Amazon searches. They are included here to help you steer clear of them.
