From the heartfeltacknowledgments and introduction to the descriptions of the hikes, the meticulous care and hoursof work are clearly evident. Abundant maps and photos and an ingenious trail finder make thisan invaluable hiking guide. Each hike description is loaded with details including history,location, changes in elevation, hiking times and difficulty, trail surfaces and the best time of yearto hike specific trails. The maps are well executed and detailed, but if that's not enough, theauthor has provided GPS data and lists of supplemental maps. Local land managementinformation is also thoughtfully provided. Particularly impressive is the step-by-step walkthrough for each hike, complete with mileage."
