Each climbing description includes trail conditions, weather advice, lodging and camping options, ideal hiking times, and other pertinent information.
Although New England contains three of the four most densely populated states in the country, there are still numerous natural sites to be explored in this beautiful area, and this detailed guide catalogs the most unique and scenic mountains. From Mount Katahdin in Maine to the peaks above the coastline, the finest hikes are included here, along with beautiful photographs of the land and precise directions and descriptions.
