A strikingly original debut from a tremendous new talent, Robert Moor explores how trails help us understand the world, from the biological phenomenon of how ant trails are formed to hiking paths that span continents and oceans, from migration routes to the Internet. In 2009, while thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail, Robert Moor began to wonder about the paths that lie beneath our feet: 'How do they form? Why do some improve over time while others devolve? What makes us follow or strike off on our own?'. Over the course of the next seven years, Moor travelled the globe, exploring trails of all kinds, from the miniscule to the massive. He learned the tricks of master trail-builders, hunted down long-lost Cherokee trails, and traced the origins of our road networks and the Internet. In each chapter, Moor interweaves his adventures with findings from science, history, philosophy, and nature writing. This deep search for meaning introduces the reader to experts who work with trails of all kind, outrageous anecdotes from his own experiences and spectacular descriptions of landscapes and animal behaviour. On Trails gives an eye-opening tour, leaving us with a much richer, prismatic take on what we constantly take for granted: how we get where we're going.

A strikingly original debut from a tremendous new talent, Rob Moor explores the nature of trails, from hiking the Appalachian trail to the biological phenomenon of how the trails of ants are formed. In the vein of Rebecca Solnit’s Wanderlust: A History of Walking, this book will explore the small and particular, tracing the formation of trails from the most tiny—ants, termites, tent caterpillars; neural pathways, minute fossil trails—to the vastest and most diffuse, including the International Appalachian Trail, what will be the world’s longest footpath, spanning from Alabama to Morocco. Introducing readers to a range of fascinating characters: from a French entomologist named Audrey Dussutour. who studies how ants are capable of externalizing memory, (allowing very simple creatures to make very smart decisions); to an old man in Vermont named Larry Benoit, who has been called America’s best deer hunter, to a renowned trail builder in Tennessee who fashions trails using a motorized dirt bike. As Rob re-evaluates what we think of as simple and ordinary, he is also wedding two popular genres of nonfiction: the long distance hiking memoir (Bill Bryson’s A Walk in the Woods) with the essayistic nature writing (like that of John McPhee). Moor is that he is a great nature writer, but also a mind-bending thinker: “What entrances me about trails—what so many nature writers overlook—is that they are more than physical phenomena; a trail is a model of elegance and a lesson in cooperation. They also provide a conceptual lens that, once goggled to your eye, alters all you survey. You begin to see even the plainest things as linear, ever-optimizing, self-perpetuating.” This deep search for meaning introduces readers to experts who work with trails of all kind, outrageous hiking anecdotes and spectacular descriptions of landscapes and animal behavior. Moor’s book gives an eye-opening tour, leaving us with a much richer, prismatic take on what we constantly take for granted: how we get where we’re going.

This report represents the second volume of the Cultural Landscape Report (CLR) for the Historic Hiking Trail System of Mount Desert Island. This volume focuses more specifically on the 103 marked, maintained trails within the park, which extend over 118 miles (See Appendix B). This report is the culmination of several years of research, analysis, field inventory, and documentation necessary to synthesize voluminous information about the island’s extensive trail system. The intended audience for this document includes individuals who are extremely familiar with Acadia’s trails and are involved in the planning process as well as those who may be unfamiliar with the trail system and/or trail construction in general but may be involved in future trail rehabilitation efforts. As a result, this document relies heavily on graphics to complement and enhance the narrative. Numerous photographs and sketches are included to clarify the text, illustrate historic and existing conditions, and provide examples of both acceptable and unacceptable usage of specific trail features.
