Purchasing information: 60 Hikes Within 60 Miles Book Series
This is great for Scout units, because you can pick up the book and know you are going to be able to find something within a reasonable driving distance.
Each location is described in detail. The author describes the difficulty level of the various trails. Pay attention to this. If you are going on a Pack hike, you’ll want to pick a trail which is fairly easy and not too long. If you are training for a Philmont expedition, select something challenging.
The book also describes the highlights of each trail, what the environment is like, and what types of wildlife you might expect to see. It also has comments on how heavily used the trail is, amenities like picnic shelters and restrooms, and other information such as if pets are allowed.
