I did skim parts of the book and the section on Raleigh area trails is really good and accurately covers some hiking trails that are hard to find.
The book seems nice, but it is a shame the digital version does not hold up. To be clear, I think this is a failing on Amazon's part - they need to fix their software.
As a final note, I am impressed with how easy Amazon makes it to return ebooks (you have 7 days) and so I can't complain too much and will reinvest the refund money back into a print copy.
This is an amazing book and I purchased it to help me plan future camping/hiking trips in North Carolina. I have gone on 3 trips since purchasing the book, and have 3 more planned. The book has provides a good level of detail on all of the trails I have looked at; this includes elevation, some history, and trail difficulty. The trail difficult is fairly accurate, but I am an active individual so maintain a level of skepticism based on your current fitness level.
The book also provides additional resources to find more information about particular trails, which includes the best place to get the most detailed/updated map. Furthermore, the book is divided into 3 regions and then into trail systems to help users navigate the large amount of trail information.
The issues with the Kindle version is the maps provided. From what I can see, the maps look to be pretty good; however, they are nearly useless (from being very small and blurry). If buying the Kindle version do not expect the maps to be helpful. Another issue navigating through the trails is difficult on a Kindle but by no means impossible. Finally, I have that the guide is not completely updated. I have found a few trails that are not covered or only mentioned briefly. The author does provide a site to go for updated trail information, but nothing is available expect purchasing another book.
Overall, I really like this book for planning and as a resource. I would rate the book a 4.5 because the maps is the only use, but hardly an issue.
