The guidebook covers the central section of Shenandoah Mountain between Rt. 33 and Rt. 250 in western Rockingham and Augusta Counties. This large wild area has a network of over 150 miles of trails, many of which were constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps. These trails offer an exceptional hiking experience in terms of scenic beauty, challenge, rich diversity of plants and wildlife, and the opportunity to find solitude.

The Great Eastern Trail:
$9.60 Members, $12.00 Non-Members (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 120 pages, 5 maps, 23 photographs Regular price $12.00 Discounted member price $9.60  

New edition of the PATC Cabins Book!

The 2018 edition of the PATC Cabins Book is now on our shelves. We have printed a new edition ahead of our expected schedule because of the popularity of the 2016 edition, which flew off our shelves. We took advantage of the need for additional copies to make a few corrections and clarification of the material in the 2016 version. (An example is the correction to the table in the distances of the hike-in to John’s Rest and Schairer cabins.) Owners of the 2016 edition should have no concerns – your version is not outdated! The remaining copies of the 2016 edition will be sold for $9 plus shipping, handling and tax. (To obtain this price, the order must be placed through an email to
