America's Great Hiking Trails by Bart Smith and Karen Berger

Nestled against the Ice Age Trail, Hamilton Wood Type Museum is wonderfully cozy with one of the forty most important trails in America, and is part of the amazing array of beautiful environments described in this book.

Whether you’re looking for an adventure from your coziest reading nook, or inspiration for your next hiking adventure, this book remains one of the greatest books in print about the stunning 50,000 miles of our National Scenic Trails System. 

Bart Smith was the first to hike all eleven scenic natural trailways end-to-end. He journaled all 18,000 miles of his adventure with his camera.  Karen Berger hiked 10,000 miles, and wielded her pen to reveal the history of each trail and highlights of their experiences. Both were passionate in their exploration into the soul and magic of each trail. 

By their powers combined, they created a true work of art. Each photograph and each description bring you along with them on their adventures. Not content just to share their own adventures, however, they also offer tips and recommendations for a variety of experiences for each trail, inviting you to experience them for yourself.

A 336-page masterpiece, America's Great Hiking Trails is full of inspiration, motivation, and passion. It can also be used as part of your daily strength-training routine, probably.
