Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Most people don't think of the Philadelphia region as a hiker's paradise, but this trustworthy guide clearly proves that it is. Outdoor enthusiasts Sandra and Gareth Kear have assembled a bountiful 336-page guide to 60 trails within 60 miles of the City of Brotherly Love. The backpacking Kears have apparently thought of everything; their coverage includes not only in-depth info on each hike but also fascinating details about the region's history. Multi-taskers will also relish the book's informed suggestions about local restaurants, farmers markets, lodging, and flea markets.
