Quiet Water Mid-Atlantic: AMC's Canoe and Kayak Guide to The Best Ponds, Lakes, And Easy Rivers, from Pennsylvania to Virginia

 
Covington, VA (August 1, 2018) - A travel writer who was treated to a tour of the Highlands area last year by the Alleghany Highlands Chamber of Commerce executive director Teresa Hammond, has now published a special book.

The writer and her husband spent a day kayaking Lake Moomaw and floating the Jackson River.

Here is more about the book:

"Explore the scenic lakes, ponds, and rivers of the Mid-Atlantic region with this new guide featuring 60 of the best flat-water paddling locations in eastern New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, and Washington, D.C. With trips for all skill levels, this curated list is ideal for families, anglers, canoeists, and kayakers.

"Each trip presents detailed descriptions of the lake, pond, or river, with maps, photographs, paddling routes, and GPS coordinates to the access point. An at-a-glance chart makes it easy to select and plan trips, with helpful information on trip time, distance, difficulty, and special features. You'll also find a detailed resource list of local outfitters, safety and equipment tips, and complete driving, parking, and put-in instructions."
