Overview

A new hiking guide to the enormous variety of terrain to be found in southern Virginia—coastal plain, tidewater, piedmont, mountains, and river valleys. Leonard Adkins is your guide to the incredible variety of terrain to be found in southern Virginia, from sea level on the Atlantic Coast to the highest peak in the western mountains. Here you'll find hikes on sandy beaches, into dark swamps, beside rushing rivers, through open meadows, to historic sites and Civil War battlefields, and to alpine zones, mountain crests, and hidden valleys. Adkins covers the most popular hiking destinations in the region, but also leads you to little-known, out-of-the-way trails where crowds are at a minimum. An overview chart provides information on the trips at a glance and makes it easy to pick a hike. Each hike description includes a topographic map, information on distance, difficulty, and rise, and a detailed route description. Adkins also provides information on the human and natural history you will encounter on the trail, with details and insights into the lives of the state's plants and animals. 40 black and white photographs
