A guide to trails on Shenandoah Mountain in Rockingham, Augusta, and Highland Counties, VA
(2nd edition, 2021) The second edition of the Shenandoah Mountain Trails: A Guide to Trails on Shenandoah Mountain in Rockingham Augusta, and Highland Counties Virginia, has been updated by guidebook author, Timothy Hupp and co-editors Lynn and Malcolm Cameron, with updated maps by Dave Pierce and design by Alan Kahan; the new edition now includes the Confederate Breastwork Trail, and omits some relocated trails that are not yet on the map. Shenandoah Mountain, part of the Allegheny Mountain Range, is located west of the Shenandoah Valley in the North River Ranger District of the George Washington National Forest; and extends 72-miles northeast to southwest from Hardy County, WV to Bath County, VA. The guidebook covers the central section of Shenandoah Mountain between Rt. 33 and Rt. 250 in western Rockingham, Augusta, and Highland Counties. This large wild area has a network of over 150 miles of trails, many of which were constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps. The trails range from long, challenging hikes to short, easy hikes suitable for families with children. Numerous loop hikes and shuttle hikes in addition to out and return destination hikes are laid out in the guide book. Since the Shenandoah Mountain area is National Forest, the trails are multi-use, with hunters, mountain bikers, and horseback riders sharing most of the trails. Mountain bikes are not permitted in Wilderness.
This second edition (2021) has 56 pages, 6 maps, and 18 photographs. pocket size book
