Exploring Virginia’s Waterways describes over 6,000 miles of free-flowing streams, tidal estuaries, bays, and wetlands. It provides all the information you need to choose a destination and then properly plan a safe,
enjoyable outing. While written primarily for the needs of canoeists, kayakers, and SUPers, this guidebook will also be a valuable resource for fishermen, hikers, bicyclists, and anyone else who desires to just mess around on rivers.
