Summary
"Afoot & Afield: Atlanta" by Marcus Woolf sorts through a myriad hiking opportunities at various parks, wilderness areas and other natural areas around Atlanta. With this book, people can quickly find important information to help them choose the perfect journey, including highlights they ll experience on the trail, the distance of the hike and time needed to complete the journey. Also, turn-by-turn directions identify specific features to help people avoid taking a wrong turn. Because many people now hike with a smartphone or GPS, the book includes specific waypoint coordinates, which people can load into a device to help guide them. To give people a greater understanding and appreciation for the places they visit, "Afoot & Afield: Atlanta" also weaves in the interesting history of Native-Americans, Civil War battles, the Georgia Gold Rush and the evolution of Atlanta. Plus, it covers some of the myths and legends born in the North Georgia Mountains. Leaning on 17 years of experience covering the outdoor industry, Woolf also included gear information and travel tips to help people hike safely
