Trails of Greater Moncton
 • Kate Merlin  → Goose Lane Editions 2003

Moncton, Dieppe and Riverview are one of the fittest areas in New Brunswick. And, no wonder, these cities have one of the best-developed trail systems in the province and people in these cities are keeping fit, without even noticing. Trails of Greater Moncton, a new book by Riverview resident and freelance writer Kate Merlin orients residents and visitors alike in this hiker's paradise. Many of the trails are easy, suitable for anyone with a couple of hours to spare. A few will challenge the adventurous. A 2001 survey indicated that 98% of Dieppe respondents knew about their community's TransCanada Trail, and of the 80% who had used it, more than half enjoyed its benefits at least once a week. Throughout the three cities, people use the trails vigorously, enjoying nature, keeping fit, and chatting with friends they know and friends they've just met. The TransCanada Trails links all three cities, winding along the banks of the Petitcodiac. It offers a ringside view of the famous Tidal Bore and, at low tide, the river's hauntingly beautiful red mudflats. All of the trails described in Trails of Greater Moncton are on public land. They include a mixture of groomed trails, wood roads, and rugged footpaths that allow hikers to move instantly from city streets to wild nature, giving hikers the opportunity to view old-growth trees, rare bog plants, and wildlife, ranging from racoons to coyotes and sometimes a black bear. Trails of Greater Moncton includes 25 carefully described walks and helpful hints for enjoying a Moncton walkabout. Each trail is accompanied by synoptic information, a map, and photographs, and sidebars on plants, animals, historic sites, and other landmarks. With a Trails-at-a-Glance chart and helpful hints for enjoying a Moncton walkabout, Trails of Greater Moncton is the indispensable companion for walkers, cyclists, and cross-country skiers of all ages and abilities.

 • Robert F Crawford → University of Wisconsin Press 1997
Product Description
The sheer physical beauty and varied landscapes of eastern and central Wisconsin are best experienced on its walking trails. Walking Trails of Eastern and Central Wisconsin is a handy guide to trails that wind through the streets of old Milwaukee and the forests of the Kettle Moraine, across the Niagara Escarpment, along the shores of picturesque Door County, or up the sandstone mound at Lone Rock for a panoramic view of flatlands that once were the bed of glacial Lake Wisconsin.
A companion to the popular Walking Trails of Southern Wisconsin, this book describes more than 200 trails in 72 locations throughout five of the state's major regions. Bob Crawford provides maps and detailed instructions to make the trails easy to locate.

With each trail description you'll find:
* details about the route and terrain, as well as geographical, biological, or historical features of interest;
* regulations including open days and hours, and rules regarding dogs, trail bikes, cross-country skiing, and other activities;
* information about available restrooms, drinking water, nature centers, and other facilities at the site;
* a description assessing degree of difficulty--slope, width, maintenance, and other such factors--and a helpful rating of "walkability" on a scale from 1 to 5.

The only comprehensive guide to hiking locations in the eastern part of the state, this book also provides lists of trail locations that include playground equipment for kids and picnic facilities for those who want to make a day trip of their hiking outing.

Walking Trails of Southern Wisconsin
 • Robert F Crawford → University of Wisconsin Press 2000
Take a walk on the wild side with the completely updated version of this popular guide.
This edition now includes coverage of Lafayette and Vernon counties, plus new information on more trails, including ones at Avoca Prairie Savanna State Natural Area, Wildcat Mountain State Park, and Blackhawk Lake Recreational Area.

These trails wind across southern Wisconsin--into forests and along shores, over glacial formations and around Native American earthworks--and showcase some of the most beautiful and interesting walking trails in the nation. Walking Trails of Southern Wisconsin retains its handy, pocket-sized format plus all the other features that made the first edition so successful:

o details about routes and terrain plus geographical, biological, or historical features of interest
o regulations including open days and hours, and rules regarding dogs, trail bikes, cross-country skiing, and other activities
o information about available restrooms, drinking water, nature centers, and other facilities at the site
o a description assessing degree of difficulty--slope, width, maintenance, and other such factors--and a helpful rating of "walkability" on a scale from 1 to 5

Crawford also provides information about nearby parks, preserves, glacial formations, historical sites, tourist attractions, and other points of interest for those who want to turn a hike into a day trip or weekend outing. Staying fit was never so easy nor so much fun.
