Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0881504440, Paperback)From the rugged summits of the Allegheny Mountains to the gentle shores of the Chesapeake Bay, the portion of Virginia that falls north of US 60 has some of the most varied biking terrain in the middle Atlantic states. Leonard Adkins, an experienced hiker and outdoor educator, has walked more than 360 miles of the region's most popular trails for this updated second edition. There is a hike here for everyone, regardless of experience or interest. ranging from pleasant strolls over the coastal plain to challenging, multi-day mountain backpacking trips, these trails pass overgrown breastworks from the Civil war, meander through grassy meadows, and traverse ridgelines of the Blue Ridge and Massanutten mountains. An overview chart at the beginning of the book provides information on the 50 hikes at a glance. Each hike description includes directions to the trailhead, a detailed account of the route, a topographic map, and entertaining asides on historical and natural points of interest.
