This is the perfect hiking companion for the rookie hiker as well as the life-long walker seeking the natural beauty of the Garden State. Trail descriptions are accurate and easy to follow. The authors' well-written narratives include historical and cultural settings that add depth and perspective to the hikes. Even though I've been walking New Jersey trails for nearly thirty years, I was able to discover new circuit hikes as well as new paths and adventures with this book as my guide. New Jersey's outdoors hold many pleasant surprises for those who seek to air themselves out in the Garden State, and this book is the best guide I've found to lead you to them.

This fine collection of hikes in New Jersey covers a fair sampling of outdoor treasures from all over the state. I purchased both the hard copy and the Kindle versions, and this Review discusses first the book and then using the guide in the Kindle version.

The hard copy version is a classic hiking guide, produced on good paper with colored covers and well bound. The extract provided on the "Look Inside" feature here on Amazon is a fair representation of the description of each hike: details of length and difficulty, directions to trail head, other users, dogs allowed, a simple map, and historical or environmental items of interest. There is a very useful discussion of hiking in the state generally, a suggestion to purchase more detailed maps, especially from the New York New Jersey Trail Conference (see first Comment), checklists of items to carry, a short but good bibliography, and a list of additional sources of information, primarily online.

The only criticism that occurs to me is that there is no GPS data for any of the hikes, but that data is not essential to the occasional hiker. On balance, this is a five star hiking and walking guide for New Jersey.

As an experiment, I purchased both the hard copy and downloaded the Kindle version, in the latter case to a Kindle 2, the Kindle PC and the Kindle iPhone app. I was particularly interested in how the Kindle version would work in practice. (I confess I've loved using paper guide books for over 40 years, and this version is perfectly acceptable for trail purposes; about a pound in weight, easy to carry and use even in wet weather (encased in a Ziplock bag), wide margins for writing, easily Xeroxable for even less weight, in short the classic hiker's approach.

Excellent description of New Jersey Trails. I've used Falcon Guides to hike throughout the US and the descriptions were accurate. Best guide available.

I have visited half of the places from this book. Most of the time the maps were accurate, yet sometimes little bit confusing. A lot of easy hikes for everyone.

Great guide. Hikes are well described and the directions are spot on. Would be nice if there were some more strenuous hikes with big inclines to power up.
