Synopses & Reviews
You love to day hike, but you can only get out on the trail a few weekends a year. This book was written for you. It is the first guide to cover the length of the Appalachian Trail in a single volume. It doesn't describe every mile of the trail, but offers detailed descriptions of the suggested hikes. The best of the Appalachian Trail is all here in one book. Day hikes in all fourteen states the Appalachian Trail passes through are described in brief, followed by a point-by-point description of the hike and trailhead directions. All of the hikes have been rated for difficulty, and range in length from less than a mile to about eleven miles, so it is easy to find a hike from novice to experienced. (6 x 8 3/4, 208 pages, maps, icons, illustrations)
