With so many superb trails in the New York City area, planning a hike can be a frustrating endeavor. Which one for an all-day outing? Where can I take my dog? Which are suitable for young children? With this newly revised and updated edition of 60 Hikes Within 60 Miles: New York City all of those questions will be answered. From secluded woods and sun-struck seashores, to lowland swamps and rock-strewn mountain tops, these hikes showcase Paleolithic rock shelters, ruins from the Revolutionary and Civil War periods, a bat cave, ghostly ruins, and much, much more.

Unbounded by state lines, the trails awaiting hikers in the updated edition of 60 Hikes Within 60 Miles: New York City include a meandering ascent of Jenny Jump Mountain in Hope, New Jersey, a deep exploration of Trout Brook Valley near Weston, and a scenic section of the Appalachian Trail that runs by Fitzgerald Falls in New York. Packed with valuable tips and humorous observations, the guide prepares both novices and veterans for the outdoors and includes all the information hikers need to get the most out of the trails, including: ∑ Driving directions and GPS coordinates for all 60 trailheads to take the guesswork out of the trip ∑ At-a-glance data on length, hiking time, difficulty, scenery, traffic and accessibility ∑ Specifics on good hikes for kids, dogs, rock scramblers, bird watching, and much more ∑ Plus, the authors offer a wide range of suggestions for outdoor recreation and nearby attractions including 20 additional hiking options

With rock-scrambling ascents to bald summits and peaceful rambles to hidden lakes, from swamp streams to roaring waterfalls, 60 Hikes Within 60 Miles: New York City is an indispensable guide for hikers (and walkers) looking for a few hours escape from the modern world.
