This easy-to-use guide will help you discover, by car, 74 access points to the Appalachian Trail, the longest linear park in the world. You will find where it crosses major rivers and the Interstate Highway System. You will be able to drive to significant sites such as the north and south terminals of the Appalachian Trail; historical areas near the Appalachian Trail such as Civil War battlefields; areas of natural interest; the high, low, and mid-points on the Appalachian Trail; the Maine/Canada border crossing of the developing International Extension of the Appalachian Trail as well as many other places of interest. Each site lists tourist information sources (phone numbers and/or websites) and where appropriate short hikes are described. The guide is also intended to help parents introduce their children to some modest hiking and to encourage active people of all ages who love nature and the outdoors to sample parts of the Appalachian Trail—a portion at a time—perhaps as a life-time achievement. The guide will enable anyone to find and follow the trail by car, thereby reawakening them to some of the magnificent wealth of their natural heritage.
WINNER - 2015 Outdoor Writers of Ohio "Outstanding Media Achievement." Before the Continental Divide Trail, the Pacific Crest Trail or even the Appalachian Trail, there was the Long Trail. Begun in 1910, Vermont's "footpath in the wilderness" traverses the very spine of the Green Mountains from Massachusetts to the Canadian border. Though it shares over 100 miles with its younger and more famous cousin, once they split, the Long Trail is another level of hiking challenge. Trail guides are essential for most hikers. A guide can tell you where water is available and what the elevation change is over a set distance. It might even use words like steep, scramble and exposed in a clinical manner. In a less clinical manner this book explains the rewards and the struggles of one backpacker's 2015 attempt to thru-hike this difficult 273 mile trail. There are beautiful views, sunny days, interesting company and other high points along the way. There are also slick downslopes, boot sucking mud holes, and a number of climbs that elicit the thought, "You've got to be kidding me." In other words, A Short Book on the Long Trail provides a concise, realistic, yet entertaining feel for this demanding experience.
