Southwest Virginia edition covers 170 miles from Pearisburg on the New River to the Tennessee state line south of Damascus, primarily through the George Washington and Jefferson National Forests and including the Mount Rodgers Recreational Area 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.
