Item description for AMC's Best Backpacking in New England by Matt Heid...
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.
