Hikes in the Washington Region: Part A
by Potomac Appalachian Trail Club

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. 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 ¼ x 7, 144 pages, 24 hikes each with two color maps, two color overview locator map, 25 photos
