I love this series of books on the "Best Easy Day Hikes" of various parks throughout the country. If you don't have time to backpack, but like to hike, this series will introduce you to many of the trails available to you. Trails are listed by area of the park and also listed in order of difficulty from easiest to most difficult. Most of the trails chosen are not too difficult, as the title suggests, but sometimes a more difficult but exceptional trail gets in there too. I also like the idea that the books are pocket sized, unlike other more complete hiking guides. You can easily take it with you on a hike and refer to it on the trail. The book on Glacier National Park is just one in the series that I own. Besides using the books to scout out trails in parks I am not very familiar with, I also have books covering some of my favorites that I return to time and again. For these I check off the trails as I do them, then, come back again to do another.
