Overview

This classic guide to hiking in the Adirondacks has been extensively revised and updated and now includes 5 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 and wild forest: 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 natural history of the region, along with colorful incidents from Adirondack history.

    Excellent guidebook

    I have enjoyed many of the hikes described in this book. I have found the book very accurate and instructions are very easy to follow for the most part. She helps novice hikers enjoy the trips even more with her vivid descriptions of roads, mountain views, etc.
    My only complain is that she includes several hikes that are really not so interesting in any aspect. With so many beautiful hikes available there should not be in her book one boring hike where you walk for miles and there is absolutely nothing to thrill the senses or to challenge the body. In any case there should be some kind of warning for the unsuspecting hiker.

    All in all one of the best hiking books I have found.
