The hikes described in this guidebook showcase the breadth and diversity of New England’s picturesque landscapes: from the sand dunes of Cape Cod to the lofty summits of the White Mountains, from the sweeping ridges of the Berkshires to Maine’s rocky coastline, from the traprock cliffs of the Connecticut River Valley to the lush forests of Vermont. Taking advantage of the patchwork of conserved lands protected over the past century, the book showcases the region’s premier hiking destinations that include national parks, forests, and wildlife refuges; state parks, public lands, and wildlife management areas; and land trust preserves.

Jeff has detailed a range of trails, from a nearby hike you can knock out before dinner, to one promising more challenge and big rewards in terms of views and solitude. This new guide covers the best day hiking trails in six states, including short jaunts on the Appalachian Trail, the lush hills and coast of Maine, the White Mountains of New Hampshire, the Long Trail in Vermont, the Massachusetts coast, the Berkshires and forests of Connecticut, and the preserves of Rhode Island.

**Mountaineers Books designates 1 percent of the sales of select guidebooks in our Day Hiking series toward volunteer trail maintenance. Since launching this program, we’ve contributed more than $14,000 toward improving trails.

For this book, our 1 percent of sales is going to Washington Trails Association (WTA). WTA hosts more than 750 work parties throughout Washington’s Cascades and Olympics each year, with volunteers clearing downed logs after spring snowmelt, cutting away brush, retreading worn stretches of trail, and building bridges and turnpikes. Their efforts are essential to the land managers who maintain thousands of acres on shoestring budgets.
