The Central Virginia edition covers 226 miles from Waynesboro to Pearisburg on the New River, including parts of the George Washington and Jefferson National Forests and the Blue Ridge Parkway, with a separate section on day and loop hikes in one planning guide and four water- and tear-resistant maps on two sheets. The pocket-sized planning guide contains background information, points of interest, and general advice. The omnidirectional format allows for the inclusion of shelters, water sources, and road crossings. Each map is focused on the Appalachian Trail and overlaps with the neighboring maps. The surrounding area and additional side trails are also included. An easy-to-use elevation profile shows the distance to the next campsite or shelter, side trails, and water sources. For added interest, maps indicate road crossings, waterfalls, and scenic areas. Maps are both water- and tear-resistant.
The official Appalachian Trail maps for Central Virginia are also available for sale as a set (#129N).
Third Edition, 2014.

These are by far the best maps I've seen of the AT. I live in central Virginia and enjoy hiking, but sometimes don't know what I'm getting into in terms of distance and changes in elevation between access points to the trail. This has it all in a rugged easy to read map. I wish I had this long ago. I picked up the trail guide with it not expecting much but was pleasantly surprised to find it far more interesting and useful than I expected - well worth the extra money. The maps are expensive but well worth it as well if you plan to hike the AT in central Virginia. There is more detail here than you will find elsewhere.
