Overview

Tacoma, Washington sits on the shores of Puget Sound, with over forty miles of shoreline within the city limits, and only an hour's drive from Mt. Rainier. With miles of new and existing trails in the city and surrounding area, hikers in this outdoor recreation haven can enjoy everything from city shoreline walks to treks through the Cascade foothills. Best Easy Day Hikes Tacoma shares the best trails Tacoma and the surrounding region have to offer, all within an hour's drive of downtown Tacoma. With this book, you can hike through old-growth forest on a classic trail around Point Defiance, one of the country's largest and most scenic city parks, observe migratory birds in the wetlands from the trail of Nisqually National Wildlife Refuge, or hit one of the Northwest's newest trails, the Soundview Trail, as it meanders through a new world-class golf course with unmatched views of Puget Sound. With concise trail descriptions, driving directions, and detailed maps for half-hour strolls to half-day adventures, this handy pocket-size guidebook is for everyone, including families.

Editorial Reviews

Like other paperbacks in this budget-priced series, Best Easy Day Hikes Tacoma features 20 short, well-chosen scenic trails, each of which is mapped and described. Hours of nature's tranquility.
