About this item


Book Synopsis

The National Park Service manages more than 21,000 miles of hiking trails across 85 million acres of land. Yellowstone alone is home to more than 1,000 miles within its 2.2 million acres. Choosing the right trails is no easy task.

The Dayhiker's Guide is here to help simplify hiking decisions. With 198 color trail maps, it details 280 of the best hiking trails in the United States. Distance and
difficulty. Elevation and elevation gain. It's all there. Most importantly, thanks to years exploring our National Parks, the monumental task of paring down a list of nearly unlimited options is taken on by an extremely reliable source. Whether it's sliding down snow hills along Mount Rainier's Skyline Trail, bounding down sand dunes at Death Valley, or walking among Bryce Canyon's colorful hoodoos under a fresh blanket of snow, these trails are sure to make you smile (and sweat, and maybe even cry--tears of joy, of course!).

Hiking is about going into the wild. Feeling free. Communing with nature. And, quite possibly, finding yourself. If you plan on finding yourself hiking in a National Park sometime soon, this book will help you find your trails.

Features rounded corners for easy packing and reduced wear and tear.
