Best Easy Day Hikes Glacier and Waterton Lakes National Parks, 2nd (Best Easy Day Hikes Series)
Time is at a premium on vacation. I feel that we will see some great views in Glacier using this book and stay within our vacation time period. Thanks for writing this with all the details given. Very helpful.
The Scout's Outdoor Cookbook (Falcon Guide)
This is a great camp cookbook - wonderful (and fun) recipes for all who love outdoor cooking! Have used many of the recipes (not just for camping) and have enjoyed them all!
Hiking Grand Teton National Park, 2nd
Best all-around guide for hiking the Tetons
This guide lists 35 trails, organized by region. Unlike (say) the Yellowstone guide it does not sort the trails into short, medium, and long hikes. Like other Falcon guides, it provides maps of each trail and valuable information about elevations and steepness. Each listing include elevation diagrams that are very useful for letting you know what you are getting yourself into. This is ...
Best Easy Day Hikes Olympic National Park, 2nd
Nice little book
I used this guide to plan a recent trip to Olympic. It does contain a lot of good info but I wish it had just a little bit more. Perhaps some better detail on the maps would be nice. I would recommend using this little guide along with a good topographic map like the National Geographic topo map. Definitely a good book to have along with you.
Hiking Yosemite National Park, 2nd (Hiking Guide Series)
Excellent and concise guide
This is an indispensible guidebook for any hiker who loves Yosemite. I use it almost daily during hiking season and it helps in selecting hikes, planning them, reaching the trailhead and gauging whether a hike will be worthwhile. Each hike contains an accurate, though brief, description of the rigors of each trek. Occasionally I quibble with the authors ranking of a given hike, but usually they ...
Hiking Great Smoky Mountains National Park (Regional Hiking Series)
Just got back from a trip to the Smokys where we spent three nights camping (Cosby campground) and two days hiking. This book was informative for pre-trip planning and very useful for choosing which trails you want to hike. I felt that the author's scale of "moderate" and "difficult" (we hiked one of each) was accurate and I also appreciated the step-by-step descriptions of the trails itself ...
Hiking Glacier and Waterton Lakes National Parks, 3rd: A Guide to More Than 60 of the Area's Greatest Hiking ...
the essential hiking guide for Glacier
Glacier National Park is for hikers. The drive-through approach along the historic and spectacular Going to the Sun Highway is wonderful and memorable (and can be done with the efficient shuttle system), but the real action is provided by getting into the backcountry. It is truly the "last best place"! We have been visiting the Park every year since 1974, and this guide has become our trusted ...
Best Easy Day Hikes Canyonlands and Arches, 2nd
Great little guide
If you plan on hiking any of the two parks this guide covers, this compact but thorough guide will be a real asset. Meant for the day hiker, it offers all the info you need to know. I particularly liked the fact that the author went out of his way to include info he might just as easily left out, such as where the shady spots are, which hikes have tough stretches, and which ones are appropriate ...
Hiking Colorado's Weminuche and South San Juan Wilderness Areas, 2nd
Great book for planning a backpacking trip. Directions to hikes are right on the mark with excellent details. Many good hikes - combine this with National Geographic Map #140 and you can put together a nice trip. Highly Recommended.
Hiking North Carolina, 2nd: A Guide to Nearly 500 of North Carolina's Greatest Hiking Trails
A Hiking Guide for Hikers by a Hiker
Mr. Johnson's "Hiking North Carolina" is a guide for hikers by a lifelong hiker in the North Carolina High Country. North Carolina has hundreds of miles of hiking trail, and Randy has hiked most of them himself. The one risk of writing a guide about something you love so much, is to ruin the sense of adventure by including too much information. On the other hand, I have been hiking long enough ...
Hiking Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks, 2nd (Regional Hiking Series)
Excellent guide for hiking.
For the last 4 years, I've had a summer job at Zion and have used this guide in hiking all but 2 of the trails listed in here. The trail guides are accurate and give a person an excellent idea of how difficult a trail is along with how interesting it is. Take it with you. It will help.
Scenic Driving Utah, 2nd (Scenic Driving Series)
Fantastic book! a must have if you are going to Utah
I took this book to a trip around Utah (Zion, Bryce, Capitol Reef, Arches, Canyonlands and Monument Valley) and I must say that without the book the trip wouldn't have been the same! There are a lot of side trips and places described in it - including the history of each route, comments and anecdotes - that does not apper in any of the two Utah guides that I had with me. Also, a lot of great ...
Hiking Olympic National Park, 2nd: A Guide to the Park's Greatest Hiking Adventures
Good 'In The Pocket' Guide For Casual Dayhikers
The 'Best Easy Day Hikes' series by Falcon Guides has quite a few in it. All of them showcase the "best" (and easier) hikes in a particular National Park. I have found over the years that if visiting a park for the first time get one of the "Best" guides. You won't overwhelmed by the choices in the bigger book Falcon makes as well. The one for the Olympic National Park is thin but will give ...
Scenic Driving Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, 2nd (Scenic Driving Series)
Susan Springer Butler
Scenic Driving Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks, 2nd (Scenic Driving Series
This book has been tremendous in planning an upcoming trip! Would recommend to anyone wanting to more about navigaiting the park and what to see. It also adds some history to make it more interesting.
Best Easy Day Hikes Grand Teton, 2nd (Best Easy Day Hikes Series)
A handy book for hikers
I used this book when my friends and I hiked in the Grand Teton National Park. It was such a good guide to let us know where to find the trailheads and what to expect on the hikes. We all had a good time!
Rockhounding Idaho: A Guide to 99 of the State's Best Rockhounding Sites
Rockhounding Idaho is the one must-have book for anyone interested in collecting rocks, minerals, fossils, and gold in the Gem State. Completely up-to-date with over 200 pinpoint GPS coordinates in ninety-nine general collecting locales, it covers both popular and widely known fee-dig operations as well as four-wheel-drive adventures into the deserts and long winding drives through the mountains. The result is a complete guide to the state?s ...
Hiking Grand Canyon National Park, 2nd
Excellent Choice for serious Backpackers
I highly recommend this book to every backpacker, who likes to spend more than 4 days of strenuous trekking in the Grand Canyon. It's full of details about how to prepare yourself for such a trip, in case you never did anything alike. For me it was the right choice, because it provides a perfectly described list of trails. Although the book does give you maps for each trail, I'd additionally ...
Allen & Mike's Really Cool Backpackin' Book: Traveling & camping skills for a wilderness environment
I loved this book! I look through it every time I'm planning a backpacking trip - just to make sure I've remembered everything and that my bag is optimally packed. Not only is it filled with great information, but it's a hoot to read - the illustrations crack me up!
