Walk the Trails in and Around Princeton : Revised to Include the Newest Trails, Spiral bound Book

Walk the Trails in and Around Princeton : Revised to Include the Newest Trails Spiral bound


This is an attractive, pocket-friendly guide to walks on sixteen of the best trails through preserved open space in Princeton, New Jersey, and its neighboring towns.

This revised edition includes eight new walks, several of which have been created on land that has been preserved since the popular guide was originally published in 2009.

The walks range from two to four miles, but many include suggestions for trail connections that allow you to extend your hike if you choose.

The guide includes detailed color maps of the trails, directions on how to get to them and where to park, and recommendations for the most scenic routes.

Each walk has been designed with a "reason to walk" in mind: a special boulder or waterfall to find, a bit of local history or a beautiful vista to enjoy.

The guide is illustrated with specially commissioned color photographs, sixteen of which are featured on detachable postcards.
