About this item

Best Hikes of the Appalachian Trail: Mid-Atlantic by Matt Willen provides readers with detailed information on 43 of the best Appalachian Trail day hikes along the 450-mile stretch of trail that extends from Harper’s Ferry, West Virginia, to the New York/Connecticut state line.
The guide includes a variety of hikes, from those that are suitable for families with small children looking for a nice walk in the woods to those that are better for the seasoned hiker out for a challenging weekend. Hikes range in length from 2 to 19 miles. This guide is unique in that it doesn’t simply provide out-and-back or car-to-car hikes along the trail. Rather, many of them make use of adjacent side trails to create loop and balloon configuration trips, as well as out-and-back excursions, and all of the trips can be completed with a single car. Each of the profiles includes pertinent information on the history or natural history of the hike and provides recommendations for other activities or sites of interest in the area.
Matt is an experienced photographer, and the book includes photographs that illustrate many of the interesting scenic, natural, and historic features that will be encountered on an excursion. With more than 40 years of wilderness travel experience around the world, Matt avails readers with tips and insights into backcountry travel that will not only help make their trips safe, but comfortable and enjoyable as well.
