This essential guide to the AMC hut system includes access trails, local day hikes from each hut, self-guided nature walks, and natural history. This description may be from another edition of this product.
This book gives a good overview of the AMC high huts in the white mountains. The author spends a lot of time on the geology of each hut area, which is interesting but, not really what I was most interested about. I would like to have had more info on the history and stories about the huts themselves. It does give a decent overview of all of them, and gives a good understanding of the overall layout of the huts and so forth. I would recommend this book if you are looking to learn about the huts and especially the geology and flora of the area.. A similar book to recommend on the history of Mt Washington was "Not without Peril" which gave the lroe and history of hiking on the mountain from the first days
BEST HUT BOOK EVER WRITTEN!

My dad and I love to go to AMC huts and this book is my bible. I read it all the time, and bring i t with me when going to huts. Just be warned, if you are hiking on the gulfside trail from Madison Springs Hut to Lakes of the Clouds hut, the book says 4.5 hours. WRONG. The correct time is 9.5 hours.
