60 Hikes Within 60 Miles: Harrisburg, 2nd edition 
Including Dauphin, Lancaster, and York Counties in Central Pennsylvania

Although known predominantly for its Pennsylvania Dutch culture, the Gettysburg battlefield, and the cities of Harrisburg, Lancaster, and York, south-central Pennsylvania is home to many tracts of public lands that offer a variety of hiking experiences. From the gentle farm country of Lancaster and York Counties, to the steep-sided ravines along the Susquehanna River, to the rugged ridges north of Harrisburg, and the rolling hills of South Mountain, you'll find hikes to suit just about any taste and interest. 60 Hikes within 60 Miles: Harrisburg, by Matt Willen, provides the first comprehensive hiking guide to the region.

Each hike description features:
  • Key information on length, hiking time, difficulty, configuration, scenery, traffic, trail surface, and accessibility
  • Information on the history and natural history of the areas the hikes pass through
  • A detailed trail map and elevation profile
  • Clear directions to the trailhead and trailhead GPS data
  • Tips on nearby activities

Whether you are a local looking for new places to explore, or a visitor in the area for business or pleasure, 60 Hikes within 60 Miles: Harrisburg will provide plenty of options for outings lasting a full day to a couple of hours, all within about an hour's drive of Harrisburg and the surrounding communities.
