I had no idea I needed this resource until I saw it listed and had to request it!

I moved to VA from NJ 4 years ago and loved hiking / walking trails up there but since moving I’ve felt lost in where to go. Add two nieces (6yr, 3mo) and a nephew (4yr) who visit and I meet up with all over the DelMarVa area, I needed things outside our normal to do.

This. Was. Perfect. It’s comprehensive and gives great details on everything you could think of while out on your hike. I feel like this is a great resource even if you don’t have children and just want to get back into nature but are unsure what your first step should be

A big thank you to NetGalley and Timber Press for eARC. I am voluntarily reviewing this book. I wish I could have read this on my kindle but had to read it on the NetGalley app on my phone-which personally is to small. But that is personal preference. The book is well thought out and I liked the diversity of the hikes. I enjoyed that you talked about the difficulty of the hike and the terrain, and had them seperated by state. Great book Can't wait to try some of the hikes. 5 stars

I live in the Maryland area and stopped going on “adventures” a bit after I had my oldest.

This book, includes a lot of different places, including traveling to other states near with highlights depending on what you desire to experience. I love how it’s broken down even by seasons.

I would recommend this book to anyone that enjoys the outdoors with children. I love all of the tips included to not only keep your children safe, but to create memories for them as well.

I’m going to try visit Black Water Falls & Bear Creek Lake. Places I didn’t even know existed!!

I def want a physical copy of this book when it’s released. The boys would enjoy this.

I volunteered to read this ARC through NetGalley.

I love this! I recently moved to Virginia and have been looking forward to checking out some of the trails in the area and this is such a great resource. This book is organized by state and has a wide diversity of hikes/trails. I love all of the details, from the standard length/elevation to where the restroom is and if there is a fee. I also appreciate the maps and pictures. There are some ideas of activities to make nature more exciting for kids throughout too, which is fantastic. I don't have kids myself, but I will absolutely be doing some of the scavenger hunts myself because they looked so fun.

I think this is a great resource for visiting the area, if you have children or if you're just looking at getting more time outdoors.

Thanks to the publisher and NetGalley for letting me review this book. I’ve read several of these 50 hikes with kids series and have enjoyed them. These books are great for kids but also adults that want to do easy hikes as well.
