The Northern Virginia Regional Commission's An Introductory Guide to Recreational Trails in Northern Virginia
highlights 24 trails and includes 19 separate maps. The guides are free while supplies last.
Information on the location and the types of facilities found on each of the trails is described in detail.
Each separate, trail-by-trail map insert includes three primary types of information:
- A narrative description of the trail; a map; and a trail elevation profile
- An index map identifies the location of the facility/park in Northern Virginia as well as directions to the primary access point or the park in which the trail is located
- A narrative including a qualitative assessment of the level of difficulty; identification of the major sites or attractions along the trail, surface type, parking and trail length
