Good overall, but could be arranged betterBy M.W.BWe have little


kids, so we really wanted this book for the hiking and cycling part. It has good information with directions, and it has a short summary at the beginning of each trail explaining the type of material (dirt, asphalt, etc.) and level (easy, difficult, hilly, flat). That was really helpful, but what could also be added would be a grid for each section so that you could quickly scan which trails are easiest, hardest, etc. We also thought it would be helpful to add what the cost of each place is with the date the info was acquired. Overall it is a good book and has a lot of information in it. We do like it and have used it several times.0 of 0 people found the following review helpful. Four StarsBy Beth A Garbolinogreat booked very detailed0 of 3 people found the following review helpful. Of limited use.By WayneYou'd do better looking up trails on-line. This book is of little practical use. From Assateague to Swallow Falls, from the Susquehanna River Trail to Rock Creek Park, Maryland offers residents and visitors a wealth of recreational opportunities in a remarkable variety of natural settings. Bryan MacKays Hiking, Cycling, and Canoeing in Maryland has been the essential guide to outdoor recreation in the state's parks, preserves, and waterways for more than a decade. A lifelong resident of Maryland, MacKay combines in this book his love of outdoor activities and his knowledge of the places, plants, and animals of the region. For each of the 23 walks, 16 bicycle rides, and 19 canoe trips, he includes general information on the natural history and ecology of the site and a short essay that focuses on a topic of special interesta particular plant or animal or an important conservation issue. Along with maps and detailed directions for each outing, the book also features beautiful pen-and-ink drawings by Sandy Glover of the Irvine Natural Science Center. The second edition provides updated information on the Capital Crescent Trail, North Point State Park (Black Marsh), Soldiers Delight Natural Environmental Area, and the Susquehanna River Trail, as well as current contact information for all parks and preserves. "From Nassawango to Middle Youghiogheny, from Sugarloaf to Soldiers Delight, here is more Maryland that you could embrace in a summer. Mr. MacKay knows the state, and he is particularly good on birds, animals, flowers, fish -- and biopollution." -- James H. Bready, Baltimore Sun, reviewing a previous edition or volume"I spend a lot of time exploring the Old Line State and this is one of the finest outdoor-oriented guidebooks to that state I've ever come across... MacKay tells you where to go, what to see and do across the very varied state of Maryland. He has done his homework. Well-written, the book includes excellent maps, line drawings, and numerous sidebars on the wonders of wandering in the state." -- Paul Sullivan, Fredericksburg Free Lance-Star, reviewing a previous edition or volumeI spend a lot of time exploring the Old Line State and this is one of the finest outdoor-oriented guidebooks to that state I've ever come across...
