Back in full color and with a new author, 60 Hikes Within 60 Miles: Boston by Lafe Low and Helen Weatherall is indispensable to locating and accessing the best hikes within a 60-mile radius of Boston. The fully updated guide includes five new hikes, including the Boston Harbor Islands and F. Gilbert State Forest. Readers will also enjoy the new section on the Bay Circuit Trail, a permanent recreation trail extending through 37 towns, linking parks and open spaces as it loops from Newburyport on the North Shore to Duxbury on the South Shore.
Lafe takes readers by the hand and becomes their ears and eyes as he describes the trails. Is the trail well-marked and well-defined? Is the trail flat or steep? How much does it rise and fall? Is it straight or twisty and windy? Is the surrounding forest dense and cool or open and breezy? What are some of the prominent landmarks?
Whether you live in Boston or just enjoy visiting, 60 Hikes Within 60 Miles: Boston provides all the information you need to choose the perfect day hike in your area, including trail lengths, hiking times, and trail difficulty. You can choose from short and long hikes, hikes for children, dog-friendly hikes, seaside hikes, river hikes, and wheelchair-accessible hikes.
