A good walk UNspoiled!,
This review is from: Hike America Virginia: An Atlas of Virginia's Greatest Hiking Adventures (Hike America Series) (Paperback)
Terrific book! Not only does it provide all the necessities for hiking in Virginia, it also provides a great deal of entertainment. Anyone considering braving the wilds of the Old Dominion shouldn't be without this book. The authors assembled everything a person needs to know about hiking the state. I was dumbfounded by the volume of information provided including: nearby lodgings for those nights before (or after) a trek, trail maps, things to watch for and things to avoid. Novice and experienced hikers will get value from this book.
Most suprisingly, I found it a really funny read! ("Just because we're IN the woods, doesn't mean we have to like we're FROM the woods.") The authors have a great sense of humor and the anecdotes they share will tickle you. I found myself wanting to hike some of the trails they cover just to see where some of these events took place!
Overall, a great book - they obviously love hiking and their enthusiasm for it rubs off. Fortunately, they couple it with sage guidance.
