Overview

Open this all-new guide and you'll discover deep forests, secluded beaches, and unexpected wild landscapes. Author Jay Abercrombie deftly weaves his expertise in biology and ecology with a boundless interest in the ebb and flow of the human tide through the centuries.
The Delmarva Peninsula dangles close to the Baltimore-Washington-Maryland megalopolis, but it has always remained apart from the fast-paced urban world, maintaining a charming agrarian and maritime flavor with strong colonial roots. The walks in this book range from easy strolls to a challenging backpacking trip. They meander through old millpond areas, 18th-century villages, historic forts, and a rich diversity of natural habitats. A mild winter climate makes this region inviting for exploration all year 'round.
