WELL ORGANISED BOOK

This book is pretty good. It has several trails in it. We were looking for some several day trips and this book seems to cover some options. I keep looking for something to show me hikes that are off the beaten path but, as with most books they focus on those that are part of the AT. As we plan on doing the AT we want to do some other trails this summer instead of doing part of the AT until we are actually doing that part of the AT.

A step below basic common sense

not sure where any reviewers are giving the content of this book a star. This book covers nothing worthy of use for anyone who wants to actually hike or start backpacking. Disappointed.
