"The Guide focuses primarily on sizeable flatwater rivers and streams...'this is not a guide to whitewater rivers and creeks'. Industrialized rivers, or those open to heavy commercial traffic are not included.
"There are 211 separate excursions described in the book, organized by watersheds. At the beginning of each section there is a watershed map showing all the trips described. Each individual trip includes a 'thumbnail' map showing access points. A data table for each trip shows pertinent USGS gages with suggested minimum levels, and a maximum recommended level where it applies; difficulty rating; hazards; scenery rating; notes on fishing and camping, with a narrative.
"Each description is designed to give the reader an overview, and a fair sense of what may be expected from the experience. It lacks exhaustive detail, but it is certainly more than adequate and will whet your appetite for exploring beyond your [geographical] comfort zone. This, coupled with a PA Gazetteer and maybe a AAA TourBook will put you well on your way to enjoying many new adventures on our state's waters."
The sections on lakes are a little more useful, but could also use some work. For example, Bruce Lake and Egypt Meadow Lake are near one another. To get to Bruce Lake, you must hike 3 miles in to put in. However, the trail to get to Bruce Lake passes by Egypt Meadow Lake, which has a close by public access. So, if I put in at Egypt Meadow, can I access the trail to portage to Bruce Lake? If so, what is the new mileage of the portage. Again, not very much information is provided.
Here's hoping that the second edition will be a little more insightful.
