Appalachian Trail Professional Review and Guide

"This 2,175-mile national scenic trail from Maine to Georgia cuts across the southeast corner of New York State, rolling along ridges and dipping to roads. The New York leg spans 95 miles between the Connecticut and New Jersey state lines.

It travels in low-elevation mixed forest, gathers views, passes historic stone walls, and applauds the changing of the seasons."

beautiful, scenic route, but very strenous in places so not for the beginner. Also, take plenty of drinking water as this is not available on the trail - when we went even the streams were dried up so even a water filter wouln't have helped...
