Summary
This generously illustrated volume features 1,001 carefully selected scenic walks throughout the world in both natural and urban settings—from Africa’s Rift Valley to the Appalachian Trail. This latest volume in the hugely popular 1,001 series is the ideal guide to the world’s most exhilarating walks, hikes, and views. Walking is one of our favorite pastimes and one of the easiest—and healthiest—ways to explore the world. It allows walkers to go at their own pace, savor local colors and details, and discover sights that would be missed if in a car or even on a bicycle. The popularity of recreational walking is on the rise with the growing number of trails and the conversion of former canal towpaths and railway lines, like New York’s High Line, into mixed-use walkways. Wide-ranging routes carefully selected for scenic beauty, historic attributes, or natural charms include California’s John Muir Trail, the Miami Beach Art Deco walk, Hadrian’s Wall and Offa’s Dyke paths in England, the Italian lakes, and many others, from easy jaunts to more rugged hikes.Each entry provides essential details about a must-try walk, including start and finish points, overall distance, difficulty rating, maps, and likely duration, making this book an inspiring reference for anyone looking to venture off the beaten path.
