The official guide to 225 miles of the Appalachian Trail from Waynesboro (I-64) to the New River at Pearisburg, Va., near the West Virginia line, including parts of the George Washington Jefferson National Forests and the Blue Ridge Parkway (the most-visited national park). The Roanoke area (near McAfee Knob, probably the most-photographed overlook of the entire A.T.) is about in the middle of this section, which cuts across I-81 near that city. The book includes descriptions of the route, with a considerable amount of historical information interwoven with the location details. Each section includes a locator map and schematic profile. The guidebook is accompanied by six detached maps (on three sheets), scaled at 1:63,360, with elevation profiles and 100-foot contour intervals.
