Product Description

Product Description

New Jersey's stereotype as overpopulated and industrial notwithstanding, there's another New Jersey worth seeing―and this guide goes there. This is the aptly nicknamed Garden State of preserved forests and farmland, of streams and waterfalls, of clean beaches and vast wetlands, of endless green mountains. This comprehensive, informative, user-friendly guide describes fifty hikes for all abilities.


From the Back Cover

New Jersey is not all suburban sprawl. It's home to preserved forests and farmland, streams and waterfalls, clean beaches and wetlands, and endless green mountains―and this guide takes you there. Explore the Ice Age–sculpted Highlands and Kittatinnies in the northwest, the rolling hills of the
Piedmont, and the Coastal Plain and Pine Barrens of the south; and discover the beauty of the coast―from Sandy Hook, guarding New York harbor, south to Cape May, where one of America's first seaside resorts greets the Atlantic Ocean.

With this handy guide, veteran New Jersey hikers Paul DeCoste and Ronald Dupont provide all the information you need to get the most out of exploring the scenic Garden State by foot.
Look inside to find:

• Hikes suited to every ability
• Directions to the trailheads
• Comprehensive trail descriptions with mile-by-mile directional cues
• GPS-compatible trail maps
• Difficulty ratings, average hiking times, and best seasons for every featured hike
• Information on fees and permits, contacts, events and attractions, restaurants and accommodations, and canine compatibility

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.

I just started getting into hiking. I've already tried 3 of these places already. So far they have been great and the info about each spot is pretty spot on. The only thing that would be better is if there is exact locations where you can park or where the trail head is. Overall a great book and there are lots of cool spots that I need to check out.

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
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.
