Best Easy Day Hikes - Milwaukee by Kevin Revolinski (c2010)
Looking for the best places to get outdoors and enjoy nature without having to take a long drive? Revolinski's guide to hiking trails in the Milwaukee area (part of the Falcon Guide series) lists a variety of spots in Milwaukee county or drives of less than an hour away. The trails can be found in state and county parks, including Havenwoods State Forest in Milwaukee, Lapham Peak State Park, and Grant Park, as well as such local favorites as the Schlitz Audubon Nature Center and the Wehr Nature Center.
Revolinski does more than just list places to hike; the guide includes detailed descriptions of the trails and trail conditions, accessibility, whether or not pets are allowed, fees (don't forget your State Parks sticker!), directions on how to find the parks and trailheads, as well as trail maps, background information, and recommendations for the best time to visit. Grab this book and your gear and head out! Check catalog for availability.
