Best Hikes With Children: Connecticut, Massachusette & Rhode Island - Second Edition

Author: Cynthia C. Lewis & Thomas J. Lewis
Paperback, 252 pages
Published by The Mountaineers Books

This completely revised second edition in the popular Best Hikes with Children series features new hikes in each of three New England states. Here is a wide selection of day hikes and overnighters, easily accessible from the New York, Boston, and Providence metropolitan areas, geared for families and children at all ages.

Explore Coginchaug cave, a long ago shelter for Indian families. Hike the Swamp Nature Trail in Wachusett Meadow Wildlife Sanctuary. Climb an ivy-covered castle or look for frog eggs in shallow waters. Experienced guidebook authors and parents, Cynthia and Thomas Lewis prove that opportunities for engaging children in the wonders of the natural world are endless! Throughout, they offer tried-and-true tips for motivating children on the trail. "Turnaround" points for each hike give tired explorers a chance to head back early, yet still have a satisfying outing.

  • Includes 79 hikes appropriate for skill levels from toddler to teen
  • Notes distance, difficulty, elevation, campsites and facilities, plus flora and fauna
  • Mixes lessons on environmental responsibility with outdoor fun
  • Illustrated with 75 photos and 68 maps

    "From charts and maps to how-to's and what-not-to's, Cindy and Tom Lewis tell moms and dads how to take the kids outdoors, and make them want to do it again! Where was this book when my little ones were young?"

    --Tom Hine, Outdoor Editor - The Hartford Courant
