Dennis Aprill has come out with another book for people looking to hike outside the High Peaks. His first guidebook, Paths Less Traveled, focused on smaller mountains (less than 2,800 feet). Short Treks takes the concept a step further, describing 20 easy hikes that require no summit climbing. Silver Lake Bog, the Hudson Gorge, Lampson Falls, Fernow Forest and Pine Orchard are some of the destinations. The book includes maps, photographs and blank journal pages to document your own adventures.
