The sports pages for hikers

Today’s Boston Globe is all about hiking in New England. OK, there were three stories in an expansive Sunday edition, but all three make for excellent reading. The news is certainly better than anything coming out of Fenway Park these days.

First, there’s this story on the town of Monson, Maine, which specializes in trail magic for Appalachian Trail through hikers, be they SOBO or NOBO.

If the AT in New England is too crowded for you, check out this piece on northern New Hampshire’s Cohos Trail, which was designed for isolation.

Finally, if you’re looking for a story of determination and perseverance with your breakfast, meet Randy Pierce, the first blind person to climb all 48 of New Hampshire’s 4,000-foot mountains in a single winter.
