Appalachian Trail Guide to Central Virginia

The official guide to 225 miles of the Appalachian Trail from Waynesboro (I-64) to the New River at Pearisburg, Va., including parts of the George Washington-Jefferson National Forests and the Blue Ridge Parkway (the most-visited national park), with separate section on the North Mountain Trail. The Roanoke area is about in the middle of this section, which cuts across I-81 near that city. The book includes descriptions of the route in both directions, with a considerable amount of historical information interwoven with the location details. The six maps (on three sheets) are scaled at 1:63,360, with elevation profiles and 100-foot contour intervals.

Irma Graf Irma Graf is a volunteer field editor for the Appalachian Trail Conservancy and a member of a number of the five local Trail-maintaining clubs in central Virginia. She leads a small group of other contributors to this guide.
