Summary

Down East Magazine's “Best of Maine 2001” listed this title as runner-up in its top guidebooks section! Exhaustive coverage of this quintessential New England state that offers year-round fun for outdoorsfolk. Skiing, skating, ice fishing, waterskiing, hiking, camping, biking and more! Resident-author Earl Brechlin has been exploring Maine for years, and he'll introduce you to hidden lakes, deserted mountain tops and secluded, tranquil bays. Acadia and Baxter parks (both draw millions of visitors annually) are included, with details on how to avoid the crowds, hiking safety and the best trails. A special section is dedicated to adventure education, with names and contact details of organizations offering courses on a wide range of subjects, from low-impact camping to mountaineering to sea kayaking. Humorous call-out boxes tell you how to speak like a Mainah! Much of this book is dedicated to the coastal areas.

"... the all-new Adventure Guide to Maine is in a league of its own. [Brechlin] steps out of the mold of the ordinary and takes us on a statewide journey that is interesting, informative and often funny. Whether it's finding your way on a wilderness canoe trip or taking a hike along a well-beaten path, [this book] will help you find the way." Registered Maine Guide and outdoor columnist Ken Bailey
"From sightseeing to nature-watching spots, this thick book packs in fine details." Reviewer's Bookwatch
"[Adventure Guides] direct you away from the theme parks and into the great outdoors... the information on trekking routes, canoeing, wildlife refuges - even golf courses - is well researched." The Sunday Telegraph
