For the discriminating walker with a taste for the unusual, Serendipitous Outings near New York City includes strolls in New Jersey, Long Island, the Hudson River Valley, Connecticut, and Pennsylvania as well as a special section for birders. These walks meander through woodland gorges; among wildflowers; into deserted villages; along lakes, rivers, and the ocean; and to a historic cemetery.

Selected outings are for those with specific interests: There are mushroom forays, walks among fragrant herbs (especially, but not only, for the blind and handicapped), total fitness trails, vineyard and apple-picking walks, and a walk amid an amazing sculpturescape. Each entry includes the authors' recommended time for a visit (it's not always spring!), directions, and ideas of other outings in the area. All walks are within the abilities of the average family, and some are easier.

For walkers of every description--from experienced hikers to leisure-time strollers--this book is the perfect guide to outdoor adventures close to the City.
