Picture of the productCircuit Hikes in Virginia, West Va., Maryland, and Pa.
(10th edition, 2019). This guide, known by many as simply the 4-States book, includes many of the iconic hikes found in our beautiful mid-Atlantic region. Two things that make this edition so special are that all of the inside photos, 27 of them by editors Larry Broadwell and William Needham, are in color, and it has a stunning cover photo reflecting fall in Hazel Country by Barbara Southworth, used with her permission. As in prior editions, the guide features 25 circuit routes in the four-state area complete with trailhead GPS coordinates using the NAD83 system, and a detailed topographic map by Dave Pierce for each route. Three of the entries are entirely new. Others have been revised to vary routes described in prior years. Still others have been updated to reflect reroutes, historical research, and more. While some of the circuits are less familiar than others, all comprise a dayhiker's dream book.

Picture of the productHikes in the Washington Region: Part A - N. Md. Counties
(6th edition, 2013) Trail builders in Maryland counties northwest of Washington have been busy. So have the PATC volunteers who produce the pocket guides that are must-haves for new and experienced hikers alike. The new Part A, like its predecessors, covers Maryland's Montgomery and Frederick Counties, but this edition adds Washington County to the geographic coverage. The 2013 guide includes staples along the C&O Canal and other stream valleys that flow to the Potomac. It covers paths close to Washington, a few with segments on paved hiker-biker trails suitable for families and beginners, as well as challenging new hikes farther from DC. Among the more difficult: a circuit of Antietam Battlefield where Civil War buffs might linger for a full day; a 16-mile route in the Catoctin Mountains with a "short" option that still exceeds 10 miles (lots of climbing on both options); a short but tough circuit in the Monocacy NRMA, where trails are not marked in any way, may be seriously overgrown, and involve several stream crossings. (Good ability to navigate by the book's map is essential on this one.) An unusual number of parks and preserves closed or rerouted trails due to 2012 storm damage or erosion. New paths opened in their place, so an unusual number of old favorites have new maps and significant changes in the turn-by turn trail directions. As in all PATC pocket guides, the essentials are explained concisely and clearly to lead hikers from landmark to landmark. Maps by PATC's master, Dave Pierce, and lots of photos of the flora, fauna and landscapes make it all live. 4 ΒΌ x 7, 144 pages, 24 hikes each with two color maps, two color overview locator map, 25 photos

Picture of the productDiary of a Trail
Tom Floyd tells the story of the people who struggled to build the Tuscarora Trail, a 250-mile hiking trail, to serve as backup or replacement for a lengthy section of the Appalachian Trail threatened by encroaching development. With the passage of the National Scenic Trails Act of 1968, the trail had protected status and its continuity was assured; nonetheless, the Keystone Trails Association and the Potomac Appalachian Trail Club determined to complete the work they had begun. This is the story of how the two trails - the Tuscarora Trail in Pennsylvania and Maryland, and the Big Blue Trail in Virginia and West Virginia - became the Tuscarora Trail. Floyd recounts the long quest to this end that began in Shenandoah National Park and George Washington National Forest, and then headed north to the top of Blue Mountain just west of the Susquehanna River and Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. In the story he tells, no part of planning or building the trail was easy; it entailed long months of scouting, poring over land records, writing letters to landholders and visiting them, seeking informal agreements or donations of lands, rights-of-way, and easements; and sometimes raising money to purchase forestlands, springs, and campsites. The volunteers broke trail, cleared thickets, moved stone, and built and shored up footway through rugged terrain. They built bridges, campsites, and shelters. The work didn't end there; once built, volunteers maintained the trail, rebuilt sections, bought more lands and easements, and rerouted parts of the trail to satisfy changes in landownership. These activities are never ending and continue on today as a renewed interest in the Tuscarora Trail is evident.
