Within an hour's drive of Maryland's largest city, an abundance of natural and scenic places remain. From hikes within the city, including a new 14-mile greenway running through the largest unbroken urban forest in the United States, to the solitude of rural Carroll and northwest Baltimore Counties, 60 Hikes Within 60 Miles: Baltimore is a guide to great hikes in the area. Not only are the big state parks and reservoirs covered, but readers will also find hidden treasures throughout the city and six surrounding counties, from vigorous day hikes to pleasant strolls. Walk along beaches, rivers, rolling farmland, waterfalls, mixed forests, the Chesapeake Bay -- even a prairie; areas rich in history and wildlife await the Baltimore area hiker. This book tells readers how to get there and what to see once they are there.
