Great book about hikes to take in the Adirondack Mountains. Gives levels of difficulty for the hikes.

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.
