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.

"The Appalachian Trail was proposed by Benton MacKaye in 1921. Over a quarter of the Georgia-to-Maine pathway passes through Virginia, going across some of the state's best mountain scenery and affording access to small-town life. Now a component of the National Park Service, the trail was, and still is, primarily built, maintained, and overseen by volunteers. Selected from the archives of the Appalachian Trail Conservancy, the National Park Service, and local Appalachian Trail maintenance clubs, the approximately 200 photographs in Images of America: Along Virginia's Appalachian Trail provide a look at life in the mountains before and during the trails creation, how it developed, who its early champions were, the many relocations the trail has experienced, and the volunteers who have constructed and maintained it"--Back cover.
