25 Short Hikes and Interesting Walks in the Lake George, NY Region

The Lake George Region of upstate New York is one of the most scenic areas that you will ever find. It is the "gateway" to the beautiful Adirondack Mountains. One of the highlights of living here, or traveling here for a vacation, is a chance to spend time on, in and around Lake George.

Called the "Queen of American Lakes", it extends for 32 miles into an area that is rich in history, rich in scenic beauty and rich in outdoor activities. Outdoor activities are numerous throughout this region and include; golfing, boating, fishing, biking, and, of course... hiking.

We enjoyed exploring the short hikes and nature trails in this region. You will, too. From the scenic views on the top of mountains, to enjoying the wildlife along streams and wetlands, to finding hidden waterfalls, we thoroughly enjoyed hiking each and every one of these trails. Now you can, too.

All of these trails are short, interesting and "doable" (even for small children, seniors and those who are not in the best of shape). This book is part of the Common Man series of hiking and biking books, which means that the “common man or woman” can actually handle these hikes and walks.

More than 75 full color photographs add to the interactive nature of this book. Its unique size and top spiral binding will allow you to carry it in your back pocket for easy reference on the trail. More than 100 pages of photos, directions, special attractions and cautions are contained in this trail guide.

Revised 2008, 132 pages, top spiral bound, 60 full color photos $19.95
