Veteran author Joe Surkiewicz explodes the myth that the real outdoor action has moved West. To the contrary, there's plenty of wilderness action and adventure in the East for those who know where to look. Surkiewicz guides enthusiasts in their quest for the perfect trail for each outing - from weekend getaways in the rugged, remote wilderness of West Virginia to quick afternoon spins near many major metropolitan areas.
