    Get outdoors!

    Hiking Michigan is a great source to find new places to explore. The authors do a wonderful job providing a variety of trails for short hikes, day hikes or ideas for multi-day trips. I look forward to using this book to discover more of Michigan.

    Happy trails...

    I admit to being a fair-weather outdoor person, but perusing Hiking Michigan, 2nd edition, has really motivated me to do more hiking and exploration around this state during the year(s) ahead. With over 100 hiking trails included, this guide-book presents a great range of opportunities in diverse locales throughout the state to tickle one's feet and fancy (inclination). The writers' style is low key, comfortable and conversational...it's as though friends are talking about their recent experiences and observations along the various trails. Even better is that they're sharing this knowledge and insight with us! The authors' expertise is evident with the "cautions" and detailed "trail directions" (no mis-stepping with this guidance) that correlate to the concise maps. They are quite considerate in providing additional information, websites, phone numbers, etc.for the various "parks/natural areas" and "points of interest" relevant to the trails. With the numerous tidbits of history and natural sciences throughout the book, one could gain some interesting/ worthwhile knowledge about the state along with the exercise/ health benefit during any hike.
    Overall, the format and legends are easily understood; enabling one to quickly determine the suitability of a trail to one's capability, time constraint or desire for new vs.tried-and-true experiences. My only disappointment: Since this book is not small enough for my pocket or fanny pack, I must resort to removing pages with trail map and written info to take along for a hike...unlike the 1st edition which I've heard had conveniently perforated pages. Nonetheless, I'm ready to put on my hiking boots... happy trails await!
