Five-Star Trails: Columbus
Your Guide to the Area's Most Beautiful Hikes
Yes, a few guidebooks do feature hiking in Ohio, but none is as detailed, authoritative, and inviting as
Five-Star Trails Columbus
. Nor does any other guide showcase--and rate--these five key attributes for which the series is named: Scenery, Trail Condition, Difficulty, Appropriateness for Children, and Solitude. But that is what each guidebook in the
series does for the destinations covered across the United States.
In the Columbus guide, an impressive collection of routes ranges north, east, south, and west from the metro center, as well as within the urban setting. This capital city is rich in metro parks, natural areas and preserves, state parks, and state forests. And this diversity of hiking terrain invites all levels of abilities and skills. Thus, this guidebook is geared not only to avid trekkers seeking more challenge than a paved neighborhood path, but also to families and senior citizens. Outdoor enthusiasts of every stripe will have reason to grab this book and, well, take a hike.
Text and photos reflect the authorís extensive outdoor knowledge and experience within the natural environments that the routes cover. Each hike features an individual trail map, elevation profile, and at-a-glance key info, helping readers quickly determine the perfect trip when they are ready to head out the door. Once on the trail, the guidebook becomes a hiking companion that will enhance the overall trail experience from start to finish. Descriptions detail landmarks, flora, fauna, and local history.
Sized for easy carrying or tossing into a backpack, this handy guide will quickly become a treasured resource among Columbus locals and visitors alike.
