Maine hikes to be topic of book signing, talk in Bangor

Glenburn author Greg Westrich will talk about Maine hiking trails at a book signing scheduled for 6-7:30 p.m. Tuesday, June 30, at Epic Sports in Bangor.

outbooks050615-2.jpg Westrich is the author of “Hiking Maine: A Guide to the State’s Greatest Hiking Adventures” and “Best Easy Day Hikes Camden,” both released in April. The two books, published by FalconGuide, include a wealth of information about a variety of Maine trails, including driving directions to trailheads, maps, historical information, facts about local wildlife and plants, and comments about the terrain.

“I try to do a lot of research of each area,” Westrich said in a recent BDN story about the books, written by yours truly.
