Exhibits include a 10-foot 3-D map of the A.T. and a kid-sized replica shelter. From mid-May to mid-July "thru-hikers" get their pictures taken halfway through their 2200-mile journey from Georgia to Maine. Kids earn a patch as a National Park Service "Junior Ranger" by completing an A.T. activity booklet. The visitor center is part of the Appalachian Trail Conservancy headquarters.
