Hurry - Only 4 left in stock!
The hiking trails of western Pennsylvania offer both novice and experienced hikers a wide variety of natural terrain and human history. Explore the summit of Mount Davis and Lake Erie's beaches; walk through carpets of mayapples and cathedrals of virgin hemlock; visit plunging waterfalls and the overgrown relics of the great ages of logging, canal building, and railroading. Veteran trailblazer and outdoor activist Tom Thwaites has completely revised and updated this bestselling guide, which features 10 new trails, to reflect the recent improvement and expansion of hiking trails in western Pennsylvania. Here you should find something for every hiker: introductory walks of one to five miles; intermediate day hikes of five to tne miles; and "bootbusters" of ten miles or more, some suitable for backpacking. Thirty-one hikes are based in the Laurel Highlands and Allegheny National Forest, with the remainder grouped around Pittsburgh. Each hike description includes information on: trail access, conditions, and regulations; mileage and rise; detailed topographic maps; and the human and natural history you should find along the way.
