A collection of hikes to places of local history in northern New York by William Hill.
"New York State’s North Country has a rich and interesting history. It also is home to some of the state’s finest forests, waters, and mountains. This book brings these two elements together. Travel to these forgotten sites and learn the stories behind them. Hiking the Trail to Yesterday – a collection of northern NY hikes and their histories will take you along the path to these special places. Visit a hundred-year-old fire tower, snowshoe to a waterfall that was once home to a busy sawmill, or hike along a century-old logging railroad grade. All of this and more will be found on these pages. Join the trek with your boots on the trail, or from the comfort of your favorite reading nook, everyone can share in the experience."
