• Waterproof • Tear-Resistant • Topographic Map
National Geographic's Trails Illustrated map of Mount Rogers High Country and Grayson Highlands State Park, Southwest Virginia, is a two-sided, waterproof, topographic trail map designed to meet the needs of outdoor enthusiasts with unmatched durability and detail. This map was created in cooperation with local land management agencies and is loaded with valuable recreation information for exploring the area's large rock formations, spruce-fir forests, and the highest peak in Virginia. Trails and major roads, including the Appalachian Trail, the Virginia Creeper Trail, and the Virginia Highland Horse Trail, are clearly distinguished. Places of interest include areas for camping, picnicking, fishing, hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, and cross-country skiing. Boundaries for park lands, wilderness, and protected areas are color coded and easy to discern. The area's unique terrain is the map's core feature, with detailed elevation contours, shaded relief, vegetation, and water features.

Insets chart the Appalachian Trail profile and list trail ratings, locations, and uses. On the reverse, you'll find the east side of Mount Rogers, including Lewis Fork Wilderness, Little Wilson Creek Wilderness, and the Raccoon Branch Wilderness. Insets list activities available at each of the camps, as well as wilderness area information.
