Beautiful! Jan 20, 2004
The most wonderful little book. It is easy to read, use, and follow with simple maps of the trails, as well as a locator map to find a trail within the state. Very well organized. The description of the trails include a little bit of history as well. I considered myself knowledgeable about the great outdoors in my area, until I got this book. It has opened my eyes to many beautiful marshlands, hikes, and waterfalls of New Jersey that I never knew about. I plan on doing all 40 walks/hikes (there is a nice mix of easy to challenging) by the end of the year. Everyone who lives in New Jersey should see these sites!
