Overview

Leonard M. Adkins has explored his native state for decades and his expertise and knowledge guide you through the vast quantity and quality of its hiking, biking, whitewater rafting, kayaking, fishing, and other outdoor activities.
Historic sites, scenic drives, walking tours, and museums—from one-room personal ones to the world-class Huntington Art Museum—are assiduously covered. Adkins steers you to places often known only to the locals, such as hidden swimmin' holes and cascading waterfalls. He has visited and stayed in hundreds of B&Bs, resorts, and lodges, and dined in scores of restaurants to provide you with opinionated and detailed profiles. West Virginia: An Explorer's Guide is the most thorough exploration of the state available, and Adkins has made sure that each and every destination is worthy of your time and vacation dollars.
