1.0 out of 5 stars Lost Once Again, January 3, 2001
This review is from: Fifty Hikes in the Hudson Valley: From the Catskills to the Taconics, and from the Ramapos to the Helderbergs (Paperback)
My friend and I have attempted five of the hikes described in Kick's book, and there have always been difficulties. Often, the trail continues accordingly, the scenery reflecting what Kick has described. Once you are deep into the wilderness, quite isolated from civilization, the descriptions in the book no longer match what you are seeing: yellow trails, red trails, blue trails, all disappear, (...) My advice to those courageous enough to use this imaginary hiking guide: bring a week's worth of water and provisions, and a cell phone. Perhaps this book needs serious updating - or termination of publishing. Good luck and God bless.

I think it is important to read the publishing date on any guide book. If you had you would see this book was written more than 15 years ago. How do I know that? I have been using this book for 17 years now. And hey! Guess what! Things change in nature. So it is up to YOU not the author to keep your head up, pay attention to your surroundings and make sure you are FOLLOWING the trail markers. THEY DO NOT DISAPPEAR!! I would know I hike those trails EVERY YEAR. So stop pointing fingers at others for your shortcomings. Okay?

The book is perfect! Some changes have been made to the trails by the park rangers to accommodate the changes in nature on these peaks as well as to benefit those who live near the trail heads.
