    perfect hiker companion

    If you want an incredibly organized and articulate handbook for hiking the Blue Ridge than I have to tell you that this is a hikers dream. It has step by step explanation for the best of what the Blue Ridge has to offer. I only wish he would have written one specifically for the Shenandoah as well.
