Being the largest and (in some sense) least developed state in New England, Maine offers a plethora of hiking opportunities. This guide will help you find some of the hidden gems The Pine Tree State has to offer.

As the title suggests, this guide describes 50 hikes in Maine. Most of the state’s major hiking destinations are covered in this guide. In particular, the guide features 7 hikes in the Camden Hills, 9 hikes in Evans Notch, 4 hikes in the rugged Grafton and Mahoosuc Notch area, and 11 hikes in Acadia National Park. Thus, if you are heading to almost any of Maine’s famous hiking areas, you will find a hike to suit your interest in this guide. Each hike contains driving directions that start at a nearby town, an excellent trail map (with contour lines!), and usually an excellent trail description. I noticed a lot of inconsistency among the trail descriptions. Some trail descriptions seemed very terse and lacking details, while others seemed to have more details than necessary. The author does not rank the hikes in terms of difficulty (using an easy/moderate/difficult or any other kind of system), so it can be hard to determine just how hard some hikes are from the trail descriptions even with the excellent maps. This can be problem because Maine is notorious for its rocky trails that are far harder than the elevation gain would suggest.

As I mentioned in the introduction, this guide features many hidden out-of-the-way hiking destinations, which is commendable because they tend to be the hardest for non-locals to find. The downside to that choice is that some well-known trails get left out. In particular, the Precipice Trail, Acadia’s signature cliff-climbing hike, is omitted, as is Mount Katahdin/Baxter State Park. How do you write a complete Maine hiking guide and not include a hike to Katahdin? I docked the guide a star for these omissions, although I didn’t want to because I liked the featuring of lesser-known destinations.

In summary, although this guide is missing a few signature hikes, there are plenty of hikes here to like. If you plan on hiking in Maine, then this book belongs in your library.

There are so many more interesting and different hikes along Maine's coast from the Ellsworth area all the way up to Canada; should have included more of those.

I have already completed five of the hikes in the book. Directions to hikes are great. Easy hikes. Glad I purchased the book
