From the Inside Flap:


The Adirondack Park is an immense wilderness encompassing over 9,375 square miles. It is nearly as large as Vermont and larger than five other states. In fact, it is larger than the Grand Canyon, Yellowstone, Yosemite, Great Smoky Mountains, and Big Bend National Parks combined. Within its boundaries are rugged mountains, countless pristine lakes and ponds, seemingly endless forests, and thousands of miles of wild rivers providing an infinite number of outdoor adventures.

With thousands of miles of hiking trails weaving throughout this precious wild resource, it is a hiker's paradise. So whether you prefer easy strolls in the deep woods, panoramic views atop mountains, the calm of picturesque lakes, the drama of turbulent waterfalls or the excitement of bone-crunching vertical ascents and descents, Five-Star Trails in the Adirondacks covers them all.

Each hike features an individual trail map, elevation profile, and at-a-glance information, helping readers quickly find the perfect trip. Sized to fit in a pocket, the book's detailed trail descriptions will help readers find their way on and off the trail. Driving directions and GPS trailhead coordinates will help with navigating the myriad of unnamed roads. The trails covered range from those best suited to the novice, families, experienced hikers, or backpackers.
