* More than 100 day hikes, with options for linking them to longer routes
* Compact, easy-carry size
* Two color maps, charts and elevation profiles

This handsome guide is full of charts and easy-to-find information that will help you quickly select your ideal hike. And once you're on the trail, you'll enjoy the sidebars on flora and fauna, and historical highlights that accompany many of the routes.

There is a full-color front map and then two-color section maps, along with clear driving directions to the trail head, options for nearby camping, ratings for trail difficulty and photos of what you'll see on your hike. Hikes are typically less than 12 miles round trip. The Day Hiking series guidebooks are the most comprehensive and attractive trail guides available for Washington state.


**Mountaineers Books designates 1 percent of the sales of select guidebooks in our Day Hiking series toward volunteer trail maintenance. Since launching this program, we’ve contributed more than $14,000 toward improving trails.

For this book, our 1 percent of sales is going to Washington Trails Association (WTA). WTA hosts more than 750 work parties throughout Washington’s Cascades and Olympics each year, with volunteers clearing downed logs after spring snowmelt, cutting away brush, retreading worn stretches of trail, and building bridges and turnpikes. Their efforts are essential to the land managers who maintain thousands of acres on shoestring budgets.

Editorial Reviews

WowWeather.com
"The most comprehensive guide to day hiking on the Olympic Peninsula."
(Longview WA) The Daily News
"Hot new series."
Washington Trails Association - Andrew Engelson
"The '100 Hikes' series had two missions: to educate people about the amazing places to hike in this state, and to build a community of people willing to speak up for and protect those places. After reading through some of the new 'Day Hiking' guide, it's clear that the mission continues."
Seattle PI
"Romano is one of the better guidebook writers around… there's a lot to like about this book. For one thing, the variety, ranging from kid-friendly hikes to trails that verge on scrambling. He covers a lot of territory that other guidebooks have passed up."
Voice of the Wild Olympics
"The newest, Craig Romano's Day Hiking: Olympic Peninsula is easily the best of the lot…the book is compact, easy to use and comprehensive."
About.com
"The Mountaineers Books new Day Hiking series of guide books is a worthy successor to the classic Washington hiking guides authored by the late Harvey Manning and Ira Spring… [The] Day Hiking series was designed and written with the needs of hikers in mind."
