Hiking Trails of New Brunswick, 3rd Edition
Hiking combines the physical health benefits of cardiovascular exercise with the mental health benefits of admiring the beauty of nature. New Brunswick offers a dizzying array of hiking challenges and a beauty beyond belief.
In an expanded and updated 3rd edition of this popular book, veteran hikers Marianne and H.A. Eiselt take us from one end of New Brunswick to the other, along river valleys, through National Parks, around the coasts, and up and down mountains. Fully illustrated with photographs and detailed maps derived from satellite imaging, this comprehensive guide includes more than 60 trails, with descriptions of the physical details of the trail (length, difficulty, ascent, hiking time, etc.) as well as tips and sidebars describing local flora and fauna, places of interest, monuments, and landmarks.
This new edition of the Eiselt's popular guide is the first in a series of new guides published by Goose Lane Editions in association with TrailsCanada. TrailsCanada is a project of Go for Green, a national organization that encourages Canadians to pursue healthy, outdoor physical activities that protect, enchance, or restore the environment.
Marianne and H.A. Eiselt have spent many years walking trails in North America and Europe, and they have co-written several guides on New Brunswick, including the first and second editions of their popular hiking guide to New Brunswick. In between hiking seasons they teach at the University of New Brunswick in Fredericton.
