The 4th edition of Central Trails is volume 3 of the Forest Preserve series. The scope of this guidebook has grown to include territory previously detailed in the Forest Preserve Series’ West-Central and Southern Region guides. This edition comprises significantly more trail descriptions, and revisions include the renumbering of all trails, with corresponding numbers on the National Geographic Northville/Raquette Lake Trails Illustrated map #744. The map also bears grid coordinates that correspond to each trail description.
The region’s defined boundaries include five designated wilderness areas: Siamese Ponds, Blue Ridge, West Canada Lakes, Pigeon Lake, and Silver Lake. More than half of the 132 mile Northville-Placid Trail meanders its way through the region, including the trail’s southern terminus in Upper Benson, just north of its formal start in Northville.
