Leonard Adkins has written and compiled one of the best hiking guide books for the Northern Virginia area, filled with accurate maps, directions and trail history. With hikes from just a couple of miles to three day backpacks it has something for everyone. 50 hikes in West Virginia has provided me with information on places that I have been hiking for years, but never knew the background on them, such as the history of the place, why it looks like it does, what plants and animals make their homes there and what their lives are like. So many guidebooks just tell you how to get to a hike and how long it is, but 50 Hikes in West Virginia is so much more than that.

With terrain that varies from the Allegheny Mountains to the Atlantic coastal plain, Virginia contains some of the best hiking destinations east of the Rockies. This book combined with its sequel "50 Hikes in Southern Virginia" give the best of the best hiking the Old Dominion has to offer.

As the title suggests, this guide describes 50 hikes in northern Virginia, which in this author’s reckoning means north of US 60. All major hiking destinations in that part of the state are given extensive treatment including the Blue Ridge Parkway, Shenandoah National Park, George Washington National Forest, and various Civil War battlefields. Length and difficulty range from a 1.8 mile stroll along the shore of Chesapeake Bay to a multi-day backpack on the Appalachian Trail. Thus, the geographical and terrain diversity ensure that everyone will find a trail here to suit their desires. The maps are copied from USGS topo maps and therefore feature good detail and contour lines. The trail descriptions frequently mix in detailed information about things you will see along the trail. Thus, these trail descriptions are some of the best I have read recently.

I was hard-pressed to find any weaknesses in this guide. I would prefer that the driving directions to the trailhead be set apart from the rest of the text. As they currently stand they blend in to such an extent that you will need to have a pretty good idea where you are going before you set out for the trailhead.

In summary, I slightly prefer this guide over its southern Virginia twin due to its superior trail selection. Which one you prefer will likely depend on your geographic region of interest. Buying them both will give you the best Virginia hiking guide on the market; I highly recommend you do exactly that.

Though the title of this book is a bit misleading, this hiking guide is very good at picking out easy, medium and challenging places to hike in the Old Dominion. I bought this third edition to replace an outdated first edition that I had. I also have 4 of his other books. The author has extensive hiking experience and it is evident from his descriptions that he really has hiked all of the trails in this book. He also talks about the areas in terms of history, flora and fauna, geology, etc. So I would recommend this book to anyone interested in 'busting some trail' in Virginia.

Please note that none of these hikes are actually in northern VA.

These hikes are all over Virginia and the least number of them are in Northern Virfinia

Well if the western part of Virginia and the south eastern part of Virginia is what in this book is perfect. There are so few hikes in northern for Genia that Mr. Atkins should be embarrassed to have the title as such. I will say that his description of the hikes and his knowledge of history is extraordinary but when I buy a book entitled 50 hikes in Northern Virginia expected to be 50 hikes within 50 miles of northern
Virginia. I don't think 200 miles away in the Shenandoah Valley or in the Tidewater region actually satisfies the title. I was very disappointed.

This book has great trails for hiking around Richmond and good descriptions for navigating the trails. I definitely would recommend this book.

A really good book. It's amazing that the price of junk food is rising and that books on hiking are being given away, (.01). Go figure.

I use this book all the time. It describes all the hikes thoroughly throughout Northern Virginia. I carry it with me when in the area.
Tidewater, Richmond, masanutten.... Less than half of the holes are actually in northern Virginia. There are amazing hikes in northern VA that aren't even included in this book. If you're from northern Virginia, you'll definitely be scratching your head at the title of this book
