Press Release

New Hike of the Week Book

The New York-New Jersey Trail Conference is excited to announce the publication of Hike of the Week: A Year of Hikes in the New York Metro Area. This new book contains a selection of 52 hikes in the New York metropolitan area -- one for each week of the year. The hikes are taken from Daniel Chazin's popular Hike of the Week column in The Record and are organized by season and level of difficulty. The hikes run a wide range of lengths and difficulties, from easy jaunts under two miles in length to strenuous ten-mile treks.

Each hike is accompanied by photos or illustrations, a map, and a sidebar that focuses on some interesting aspect of the hike, such as history, geology, wildlife, etc. The photos show fantastic views and interesting features that one might encounter while on the hike. Each map has been designed to clearly show the hike route and identify the many different points of interest along the way. The sidebars were prepared by a team of volunteers, and the maps were designed by Trail Conference Cartographer Jeremy Apgar. The book was designed and laid out by volunteer Sara Abad, and Charlotte Fahn served as volunteer project manager.

At a price of $19.95 ($14.96 for members), this guidebook is perfect for anyone interested in exploring the rich network of trails in our area, including those new to hiking as well as experienced hikers looking to expand their horizons.
