New England has a lot to offer so it’s no surprise that it’s one of the top outdoor tourist destinations in the country. It sees many people traversing its land each year, and many are there specifically seeking outdoor adventure. And, with families spearheading the need to get outdoors with their little ones, there are places a-plenty for exploring with littles of all ages. Whether you live here or are simply traveling through, Hiking with Kids New England offers up new and exciting adventures for parents and their elementary school-age kids alike.
Organized around location, for ease of knocking out all of those “bucket list” places, the book features 40-50 easily accessible day hike locations, with each hike featuring a color photo and a map. As is standard with FalconGuides, all the basic information—from trailhead GPS to best times to go to fees and contacts—will be there, along with trail descriptions geared directly for the kids. The book’s handy “Best Hikes For” chart in the beginning will identify the best hikes for water features, historic geographic features, views, cool flora/fauna, and more.
Hiking with Kids New England will keep its young participants engaged with tips on cool scavenger hunts; how to identify various animals, bird calls, and more; fun facts about the history of the land; and more.
