50 Hikes With Kids New England by Wendy Gorton


This guide is designed for adults who want to spark a love of nature in their young walking companions. The book highlights the most child-friendly hikes in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont.  These hikes are perfect for little legs—they are all under five miles and have an elevation gain of 900 feet of less.  Every entry includes the essential details: easy-to-read, trustworthy directions, a detailed map, hike length and elevation gain, bathroom access, and where to grab a bite to eat nearby.  Full-color photographs and scavenger hunts highlight the fun things to see along the trail. The book has a wipe-clean flexi cover with a map and a simple plant guide on the end pages.
