Why a hiking book for Boomers? Because Boomers are a savvy lot and they know that one size does not fit all. While they may be up for adventure and eager to challenge themselves, they wisely want to know what they are getting into before taking the leap. Thata€™s exactly what youa€™ll get in this lively and informative hiking book, appropriate for both novice and experienced hiker. Organized into five a€œBoomer Ratinga€ categories according to the level of challenge, the 75 hikes of this book begin with an honest assessment of the physical demands (and pleasures) of a hike, then give you all the advance trail a€œintela€ necessary to make your day in the woods memorable.
