The mid-Atlantic's best day hikes on the AT

If you're looking for fun and adventure on the Appalachian Trail, look no further. You hold in your hands an exciting guide to 43 trails in West Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and New York. They have been tested and approved for families with young kids, veteran hikers, and everyone in between. There are mellow hikes, steep hikes, and hikes through forests. Visit well-known sites, such as Harpers Ferry, the Delaware Water Gap, Bear Mountain State Park, and the Hudson Highlands. Along the way, experience abundant overlooks, Civil War memorials, state parks, waterfalls, and more

Matt Willen provides detailed information on the best day hikes along this 450-mile stretch of trail. Many of the hikes make use of the AT's vast network of side trails to create loop- and balloon-configuration trips, as well as out-and-back excursions. Each profile includes GPS-based trailhead coordinates, trail maps, and elevation profiles, as well as pertinent information on the natural history of the hike and recommendations for other activities in the area. Ratings for scenery, trail condition, accessibility for children, difficulty, and solitude ensure that you choose the right trails for your specific needs and interests.

This carefully curated collection of short segments offers a new approach to enjoying the granddaddy of America's trails.
