A question arose on this blog the other day – why wasn’t a specific trail included in a Saratoga area hiking book. The answer came back from author Roger Fulton that this particular trail could be found in the Saratoga biking book.
This reminded me of an issue that Rich & I faced as authors. When you produce a series of guidebooks to a specific area (such as Rochester NY and the Finger Lakes area) you have to divide up which trails go into which guidebook. Generally, if a trail is bikable it goes into the biking guidebook, mainly because most trails are for hiking only. But, the issue is, trails in biking guidebooks can be used for hiking, running, cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, bird watching, and nature appreciation.Consider picking up a biking guidebook even if you don’t won a bicycle. You’ll find many wonderful trails you may have overlooked.
