DESCRIPTION

A limited edition release from Field Notes, the hiking themed Trailhead Edition is the perfect companion for making plans and recording adventures.

Each of the books features one of America’s “Big Three” hiking trails: The Pacific Crest, Continental Divide, and the mighty Appalachian - a perfect memento if you've walked these routes or to act as an inspiration for your local hikes. The internal pages are simply ruled, meaning these can be used as regular (but very beautiful) notebooks.

Sturdy forest-green linen covers with an application of orange Crown Foil surround 48 Ruled “vanilla” pages, bound together with orange staples. The linen covers are quite durable and age beautifully. In addition, a flyleaf is filled with facts, tips, and a “General Guide to Life on the Trail.”

      PROVENANCE AND ETHICS

      “I’m not writing it down to remember it later, I’m writing it down to remember it now.”

      Inspired by the vanishing sub-genre of agricultural memo books, ornate pocket ledgers, and the simple, unassuming beauty of a well-crafted grocery list, the Draplin Design Company of Portland and Coudal Partners, a Chicago creative firm, have created Field Notes Brand, a collection of smartly-designed, vintage-styled pocket notebooks, calendars, and various office accoutrements.

      From the very beginning, every Field Notes paper product has been manufactured in the U.S.A. From the paper, sourced from some of the finest mills in the Midwest, to even the inks used, the production of Field Notes has never required travel on a cargo ship or plane.
