Hiking and Traveling the Blue Ridge Parkway, Revised and Expanded Edition

The Only Guide You Will Ever Need, Including GPS, Detailed Maps, and More

Revised and Expanded Edition

By Leonard M. Adkins

Trade Paperback


This comprehensive guidebook provides a detailed description of every official National Park Service trail along the Blue Ridge Parkway. But that's just the beginning: veteran hiker Leonard M. Adkins includes information on every trail that touches the parkway, including the Appalachian Trail and other public pathways on national park, state park, national forest, municipal, and private lands, along with citations for the Mountains-to-Sea Trail. Far more than a guide to the trails, this book will help you plan your whole trip. It's the perfect companion for your next parkway adventure.
