If you love to hike the White Mountains, this is your BIBLE! Always full of pertinent info and great maps which are available updated separately. I'm waiting on the Crawford Notch pre-order due to be released in a week or two.
This most recent guide is fabulous, as always. The trail descriptions are accurate, very detailed, and the three included maps (front and back) are easy to read and follow. I used them just a few weeks ago during a 5-day trip in the Whites, and I was very pleased. There is a lot of general info, as well, aside from the trail descriptions - history (natural and local), weather, hiking safety info, etc... The book is large, so I ended up copying only the pages I wanted to carry along in my pack. Perhaps they might want to think about converting to a ring binder book, as the CT Blue Trails books do: Connecticut Walk Book West: The Guide to the Blue-Blazed Hiking Trails of Western Connecticut, Including the Metacomet and Mattabesett Trails. I still copy those pages anyway (and enlarge them), but the binder makes it easier to accomplish that. Plus you can insert and keep notes, clippings, other info securely within the book.
My only recommendation is that they just do away with the paper maps and start including the waterproof ones with the guide instead. One waterproof map on its own is 10 bucks at the AMC @ Pinkham Notch. So basically you might end up re-buying the maps. The Appalachian Trail Conservancy just includes the waterproof ones with their guides, which is smart. I'd prefer not to have duplicate maps.
Anyway, this is THE definitive White Mountain guide. Accept no imitations!
