The Central Virginia edition covers 226 miles from Waynesboro on I-64 to Pearisburg on the New River, including parts of the George Washington-Jefferson National Forests and the Blue Ridge Parkway, with a separate section on day and loop hikes in one guide and four maps on two sheets. The pocket-sized planning guide contains background and interpretive information, points of interest,  general advice,  shelters, water sources, and road crossings. The omnidirectional format allows you to see where you are whether southbound or northbound. Each map is focused on the Appalachian Trail and overlaps with the neighboring maps. The surrounding area, out to about three miles, and additional side trails are also included. An easy-to-use elevation profile shows ups and downs and the distance to the next campsite or shelter, side trails, and water sources. For added interest, maps indicate federal or state lands, road crossings, waterfalls, and scenic areas. The maps, revised in 2018, are both water- and tear-resistant.

  2. These maps are awesome!! 5 Star Review

    (Submitted on Apr 7th 2019)

    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.
