Within hours of cities like New York, Philadelphia, and Washington, DC lie thousands of miles of trails accessible to tens of millions of residents and visitors. The Mid-Atlantic region offers a wide variety of terrain and possible expeditions, and AMC’s Best Backpacking in the Mid-Atlantic is an easy-to-use guide that will help hikers experience 30 of the best multi-day trips. Ranging in difficulty from intermediate to expert, these trails take hikers through forests of wild rhododendron at Dolly Sods, across the beaches of Assateague, and over the peaks of New York’s Catskill Mountains. Basic topographic maps, a region-specific planning guide, photos, and GPS waypoints of parking lots and points of interest will help hikers plan their trips. Complementing AMC’s successful Best Backpacking New England, this new guide is an essential backpacking tool complete with turn-by-turn directions and expert advice on how to best experience the Mid-Atlantic.
