New York

New York is a well-known state, but also full of surprises. From the thrills of deep-sea fishing off Long Island to the calm of hiking on the trails or on the water in the Adirondack Mountains, the four seasons offer activities indoors and outdoors. It also through this state where the 88 miles of the Appalachian Trail has the lowest elevation change.
