A thoroughly revised and updated edition, with four new hikes.
The Roanoke Times calls Leonard M. Adkins "a great hiking writer," and for this new edition of 50 Hikes in Southern Virginia he has thoroughly updated all of the hike descriptions. Working in concert with the administrative personnel of the many national forest ranger districts, state parks, national wildlife refuges, wildlife management areas, and national parks, he re-hiked many of the trails, and four of them are so completely different that they qualify as entirely new outings. Closed services and facilities have been deleted, new ones have been added, and relevant Web sites are now included in the contact information. 50 color photos, 51 maps, index.
