Tracing the White Mountains Trails

Explore this map

Red-lining is hiking all the trails in the AMC White Mountain Guide. Its name is derived from tracing the trail with a red marker when complete, or for the fact that trails are red on the guide book maps. Redlining, as it relates to history, is the systematic denial of goods to minority communities. Words have different meanings, contexts, and derivations. But, the outdoors is a public resource and should be equally available to all without the added overhead of enduring negative connotations. For that reason, I am now referencing the act of hiking all of the trails in the AMC guide book as tracing, and have updated all references on this site as such.

Below is a list of the different sections of the 30th edition guide book and the trails that I have traced.
