Event Details

The Hickory Stick Bookshop and Gunn Memorial Library we are excited to welcome author Wendy Gorton who will be sharing her new book “50 Hikes with Kids: New England.”

The book highlights the most kid-friendly hikes in Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont. These hikes are perfect for little legs — they are all under five miles and have an elevation gain of 900 feet of less. Every entry includes the essential details: easy-to-read, trustworthy directions; a detailed map; hike length and elevation gain; bathroom access; and where to grab a bite to eat nearby. Full-color photographs and scavenger hunts highlight the fun things to see along the trail. New England kids live in a magnificent natural playground — this adventure companion helps them explore its forests, mountains, beaches, and waterfalls.
