Beautiful and informative
Reviewed in the United States on August 21, 2019
When I told my friends we can use my book to choose a hiking destination, they rolled their eyes and assumed it would fall to the wayside while we decided. However, this book is highly functional and informative. It starts with a list at the beginning, broken up into region, that summarizes the length (time and distance) of a hike and any notable features like parking, snow shoeing, and water. Then, you can investigate each hike further once you've chosen a top few. Each destination has a 3-4 page spread that has a map of a suggested route, parking details (have you ever driven in circles looking for the parking or trail entrance? no longer with this book!), and some descriptions of what you should expect.
I am just getting started with it, but I have discovered two new hikes, one of which was BEAUTIFUL. I like getting to know different sites that I would not have ordinarily found.
Very valuable if you are looking to get out and explore some of the nature around you!
