"The vast majority of visitors to Maine are not rugged outdoors types looking for adventure. Yet many of these people still want to enjoy a nice walk or short hike with their kids or parents. In this collection of hikes, Bangor Daily News outdoors reporter Aislinn Sarnacki presents dozens of hikes around the state that will let you experience the Maine wilderness, but won't leave you gasping for breath. Most are short (less than three miles), and all are in the easy/moderate difficulty range. Color photos inform you of trail details and some of the wildlife or scenery you may see on your hikes, and clear maps make sure you make it home for dinner. It's all rounded out with practical advice and information about access to public and private lands" -- Provided by publisher.
