Many great hikes  Apr 5, 2008
This is one of my favorite hiking guides for the Boston area -- varied hikes, easy maps, mostly accurate. Crane Beach and Halibut Point are two of the prettiest places in New England & shouldn't be missed.
This is a great book by a respected local author.  Apr 30, 2007
Great book. The AMC guides are so thorough, but this is thorough and readable. Enjoy New England with this book.
