Massachusetts Hiking Trails Guidebooks

Hiking Massachusetts

Hiking Massachusetts stands out from other hiking books for its organization and informational approach. Best feature: for each hike there is an elevation graph which displays a line which represents a cross-section of the trail. The line rises and falls with the elevation of the hike. This feature alone is worth the price of the book, as you can tell at a glance how steep your hike will be. The book also has a generous helping of maps and photos, and generous informational sidebars (where to eat, schedule, fees, surface, who owns the land, what other trail users you can expect, and more).

50 Hikes in Massachusetts

Massachusetts spans a splendid diversity of hiking terrain, and this completely updated fourth edition of 50 Hikes in Massachusetts takes you to the state's most stunning locations. This guidebook introduces miles of terrain to hikers, birders, beachcombers and meanderers of all levels, including gentle walks suitable for the entire family, and rugged outings for experienced hikers. As geologists, Brian White and John Brady add fresh depth with observations on the geology, plant, and animal lore included with each hike. Bartholomew's Cobble may be a brief three-miler, but its fascinating history spans thousands of years. The Caratunk Wildlife Refuge is a mecca for birders, and the giant boulder maze left by glaciers long ago lend a sense of enchantment to the hike. Fields of wildflowers, towering summits, deep forests, windswept beaches, and historical curiosities are among the treasures you'll encounter on these hikes.
