Picture of the productThe Great Eastern Trail - Between SR 55/US 48 and I-64
(First edition, 2018). Our newest publication is the first guidebook to the 200 miles-plus of the Great Eastern Trail between SR55/US 48 and White Sulphur Springs, WV (I-64) in West Virginia and Virginia. The Great Eastern Trail, known as the GET, is a 1800 mile long trail leading from Alabama to New York made up of local trails linked to form a longer path; it parallels to the Appalachian Trail and in many ways is modelled after it, but set farther west and south. The trails making up the sections of the GET covered in this guidebook include part of the Allegheny Trail and part of the Tuscarora Trail. Between these trails is the Headwaters Section, a series of different Forest Service trails and roads largely on Shenandoah Mountain and North Mountain. Work towards completion of the GET, organized from the local trail clubs in 2007, is ongoing. Progress on the trail and trail updates can be followed in the newsletters found at

(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.

Picture of the productThese Hills Were Home
(2nd. ed. 2022) The second edition of These Hills Were Home: A Walking History Guide to The Blue Ridge Mountains of Northern Green and Western Madison County, Virginia, is now available. Seemingly effortlessly, the author Kristie Kendall combines three elements to provide a unique walking guide: she provides maps and text that lay out clear directions for following walking paths as they wind past the remains of homes and other structures and a varied array of artifacts reflecting life as it was live on the mountain, all of which is given more substance through her detailed descriptions and the many photographs of the people who lived there and their activities.

Kristie’s love and respect for the people who once lived in this area is evident in her writing. She reminds readers at several points that the sites described in the book are the places where generations of mountain families lived out their lives, and should be treated with respect and left undisturbed. The second edition includes several new trails and six additional 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.
