Summary
Less than a day's drive from New York, Boston or Philadelphia, there are magical wilderness preserves, teeming with wildlife. Over 5,000 square miles of forests, lakes and mountains, the Adirondacks are among the most beautiful preserves in the world. The Catskills have deep gorges, great waterfalls, forested mountains, and some of the best fishing streams in the state. This guide recounts tales of the early Indians who roamed the forests, the first explorers, and the constant wars among the French and British, then the American colonists, for control of the land. But the book is mainly a guide to enjoying the region today. After sections on how to get there, the quickest and most scenic routes to and through the parks, the author details the places to stay, everything there is to see and do, the public and private campsites, and the best hiking trails. You'll also find expert advice on hunting, fishing, wildlife photography or just the most beautiful places to relax.
