Product Description:

This completely updated treasury of trails takes you to the best wild places in the Garden State.

New Jersey holds much for hikers to explore, and this completely updated edition leads the way along the Appalachian Ridge; over the ragged Wyanokies; through the hauntingly remote pine barrens; and into the marshes, dunes, and sifting sands of the seacoast. With excursions from 1.5 to 28 miles in length, accompanied by driving directions, trailhead information, difficulty ratings, and detailed maps, this roster of hikes will suit everyone from families out for a nature walk to adventurous backpackers up for challenge.

Known more for its urban areas than its green spaces, the Garden State is actually a crossroads for major interstate trails including the Maine-to-Georgia Appalachian Trail, the 150-mile Highlands Trail, and the 60-mile Delaware and Raritan Canal State Park Trail. Local trail networks crisscross the state and the authors offer their choice picks, sharing the geology, lore, and natural and human history along the way. 51 black-and-white photographs, 51 maps
