50 Hikes in the Adirondacks, 4th Ed.
Short Walks, Day Trips, and Backpacks throughout the Park
This classic guide to hiking in the Adirondacks has been completely revised and updated and now includes TK new hikes.
Barbara McMartin has been hiking in the Adirondacks for decades; her family, for generations. She has distilled her vast experience into the 50 hikes offered here, representing a cross-section of the wilderness: rugged peak climbs, gentle trips to distant waterfalls, bushwhacks to wild rivers. In all she describes 360 miles of trails to caves, uninhabited lakes, wetlands, cliffs, and fire towers across the Park's 6 million acres.
The hikes range in length from 1.5 to 13.5 miles. Each hike description includes a topographic map, mile-by-mile directions, and information on distance, difficulty, terrain, and hiking time. An overview chart makes it easy to pick a hike for every ability. Throughout, McMartin provides commentary on the flora and fauna, along with colorful incidents from Adirondack history.
"Any reader seeking to relearn the history and beauty of a favorite place, or to discover new places, should head for the bookstore or library for copies of McMartin's books."
