AMC's Best Backpacking in New England
- Item #: 638
A Guide to Thirty-Three of the Best Multi-Day Trips from Maine to Connecticut
This new guide from the publishers of the Best Day Hikes series provides a comprehensive look at what you need to plan a memorable backpacking trip in a region known for its rugged terrain. You'll explore the wildest, least-traveled trails on 33 trips that are rated by difficulty -- from Easy to Epic. You'll read about nine wilderness areas, eight state forests, four state parks, two national forests, and a variety of other protected landscapes.
Each trip description includes regional locator and trip maps, as well as photos of the area taken by author Matt Heid. Heid maximizes your wilderness experience by selecting loop hikes, conveniently eliminating the need to cross roads or shuttle a car. Overnight options -- including camp sites and lean-tos -- are also listed, as well as tips on safety and gear to better prepare you for a challenging and rewarding backcountry adventure.
