Best Loop Hikes New Hampshire's White Mountains to the Maine Coast is hiking with a welcome twist: no tandem driving, no dropping off a car at the end of the trail --and no turning around to hike the same trail back. Jeff Romano hiked more than 450 miles to select the best loop trails in northern New England -- from the rolling hills of southern New Hampshire and towering summits of the White Mountains to the large lakes and abundant wildlife of the Northern Forest and rocky coastline of Maine.

Useful features of this guidebook include elevation profiles and charts listing hikes by special interest and best times to go. Information is also included on wildlife, geology, and history.

Regions covered include Acadia National Park, Camden Hills, Baxter State Park, the Maine Coast, Moosehead Lake, the Presidential Range, Mount Washington Valley, Franconia Notch, the Lakes Region, and the Monadnock/Sunapee area.

The best thing about all [the hikes] is that they start and begin at the same place.

The guidebook is well-organized and easy to use…Romano chronicles each hike in clear detail while keeping the information concise and interesting. The inspiring images of the landscape and tidbits of history make you want to go and see for yourself, exactly the purpose of a well-written guidebook…An exciting photograph is included with each hike…A great addition to any hiker's library.

The author has completed every hike in this book and it shows. The trail descriptions are detailed and accurate. I like that all pertinent information is provided for each hike. He includes directions to the trailhead, distance of the hike, elevation gain and profile, difficulty level, and recommended direction to do each loop. Sometimes there are suggestions for shortening or lengthening the journey in a particular area. We have also enjoyed his descriptions of the sights and sounds to look and listen for along the way, along with the historical notes. And each hike has been a good one!

This is one of the best hiking books out right now. It is detailed and complete, with accurate maps and up to date trail information. It is obvious that the author actually hiked these trails and I really appreciate the historical information available, as well as wildlife references. This is an awesome book for birdwatchers, as well. The variety of hikes range from easy to strenuous ones, and there is a great range here. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who likes the ourdoors, regardless of ability, because there is something in here for everyone.
