Hello everyone,

I'm mainly asking for help with directions, but other tips are also accepted.

We plan to go on the East coast of the United States to chshboa the second half of August, when two points for our drive to both Boston and New York (close calls).

We will be with a baby in a stroller (carrying on the carrier) and no car, and ntnide with public transport (trains/buses/taxis for short distances).

We are looking for beautiful nature trails of up to 10 miles per day, in the region between New York, Boston or explain Boston (up to few hours) to suit the pram and relatively accessible. Also, an option to camping place, stay there, and out of that spot for a few day trips.

If it's not particularly beautiful trail suitable for trolleys, but is shorter (for example to three hours walk)-we'd love to hear about it too (and then doing it when the baby in a carrier).

Thank you so much for everything!

Public transportation outside the major cities are very rare in the United States and very few trails are accessible by public transport. Trails suitable for strollers (4 wheelchairs) are also scarce less than if they exist. Babies who take trips to a name.   The only place there is also a path and anything accessible on cart is where for apalch and passes through a Zoo then crosses the Hudson on a bridge about a mile in length. I think there a bus from New York but unfinished. Looking for BEAR MOUNTAIN ZOO
PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION And APPALCHIAN TRAIL

Where camping can be done legally only by the shelters that are not short walking distance (a few hours) from the Zoo and her, what makes the necessary carrier. And it's not a very sympathetic in high summer when carrying a baby on her back.
Nothing can be done without us really hard car outside major cities.

Hi Ronnie,

Thanks for the response.

I'll try a little to broaden the question: we don't mind taking a cab, say 10-20 km, to reach the camping area or the beginning of a track (or uncommon)

Secondly: as far as I'm concerned, the appropriate route for wagons is also dirt roads with some bumps (Jeep ways), or pedestrian walkway as Bush (the wagon not "drown").

Are the parks, I'm pretty sure I need to have camp sites or in areas not far from the East Coast, no hiking trails that match these requirements? (For example: Cape Cod, where I was, there were few suitable routes)

Thanks a lot!

The parks always have suitable routes for pedestrians with buggies. To reach the Park car.  To get out of town by taxi (and back) more expensive than to rent a car for one day. Consider hiring a car for your trip.

Agree with yankele.   Car rental is the only realistic option. And it's not that expensive in the USA (you can rent baby safety carrier).

Hello

I want to update on the trip we made in the USA with a baby carriage (baby-runner with bicycle wheels), and not a rental:

We were four days in Portland (portland), Maine.
City can be reached either by plane or by bus direct from Boston (2 hours).
The city itself is very beautiful. This place has an awesome website: http://www.trails.org, the center of all the options around the city. Among others, there are intended for strollers or bicycles or walking away.
Most of the routes where there is reasonable access by public transport.

We did 4 tracks (all but 1 are suitable for pushchairs; track-we didn't need much more effort to move the cart), and we got about 4-7 miles on each of the three days we hung. Also, we took a ferry to the island of trust, where j is a route around the island, you can do both on foot and by bike you can rent Bimkom (and have to rent a cart dragged the kids too). [There are also bike rental in town].

Two additional tracks that fit in some carriages are the Rhode Island Beach (about an hour south of bsoton). To them we're not there yet, but it's good to know about.

At the end of the day very helpful.
