Thirty nature treks, selected for their natural, stand-alone beauty, are enhanced by tangible silhouettes of a fascinating past, from early Native Americans and Colonial settlers to the Industrial Revolution and Victorian-era grand hotels. Hike to waterfalls, mountains, escarpments, lakes, sculpted rocks, ponds, rivers, islands, caves, balanced rocks, geysers, and deep gorges while visiting the sites of famous battles of the Revolutionary War, ghostly industrial ruins, a Moorish-style castle, views and vistas made world-famous by America’s greatest painters, vanished Shaker communities, great estates of the "Gilded Age," a working lighthouse, and "New York’s Mount Rushmore."
