Our Newest Book - VT Trails

“25 Short Hikes and Interesting Walks in the Bennington

and Manchester VT Region”

Vermont has long been known as a destination for people who enjoy history, antiquing, exploring back-country roads, tasting the latest batch of maple syrup or cheese or just relaxing in the Green Mountains. Well, here is an opportunity for you to maybe do all of these things – and get a little exercise too.

In this book, you’ll get a chance to explore some of the history, interesting sites and scenic views of the Bennington-Manchester area. Would you be interested in visiting an antique car museum? Care to tour a 225 year old church that still holds services? How about walking through the grounds of a huge estate built by Abraham Lincoln’s son? Perhaps you’d prefer taking short walks to wilderness ponds or to scenic views of the Green Mountains.

If you are looking for a reason to explore Vermont, then this book is for you!

We tell you where to go, how to get there, how long each outing should take, what you'll find when you get there and more. 25 different outings and more than 60 color photos enhance the interactive nature of this book. It's a handy size to fit in your pack or your back pocket to accompany your on your trips.

2012, 123 pages, top spiral bound, color photos - $19.95
