about this item
Official guide (book and maps) to the Appalachian Trail in the southern half of Virginia.
The official guide to the 170 miles of the Appalachian Trail in southwest Virginia, from the New River near Pearisburg to the Tennessee line at the southern boundary of the Mt. Rogers National Recreation Area. This guide is a package of a guidebook and four maps (on two sheets of water-resistant, tearproof plastic paper). The book features "unidirectional" trail descriptions with water sources and overnight sites and a wealth of historical and natural-resources information, all compiled by the volunteers who manage the trail in this area and completely revised in 2015. The highly detailed, inch-to-a-mile maps are GIS-generated, span out three miles or more from the footpath, and include elevation profiles of the trail route.
