Overview

The first guide to focus on desert hikes of central and eastern Washington-the dry side of the Cascades!* Prime hiking for fall, winter, and spring * Organized by quick access from Spokane, the TriCities, Yakima-Ellensburg, and Wenatchee-Chelan * 100 hikes, from short half-day trips (1-5 miles) to overnighters If you're used to tight, tree-lined trails through (often-dripping) evergreens, it's time to enter an entirely different world: the high desert of central and eastern Washington. It's desert, yes-but not the Lawrence of Arabia kind. This landscape of sagebrush and rimrock canyons is starkly beautiful and rich in plant and animal life. It offers mild temperatures in fall, prime wildlife viewing in winter, and an explosion of wildflowers in spring. Best Desert Hikes: Washington is a great way to extend your hiking through three-seasons-a Hikes at a Glance chart in the front of the book lists best time to go for each trail. Some of these hikes follow designated trails; others guide you along the contours of the land for a more individual experience. There are tips on hiking in desert conditions, too. Alan L. Bauer and Dan A. Nelson first teamed together to write Best Loop Hikes: Washington. Bauer is a freelance photographer whose work has been published in Backpacker, The Seattle Post-Intelligencer, and many other publications. Nelson is a contributor to The Seattle Times and Backpacker magazine, specializing in Northwest destinations and outdoor gear reviews.
