We gave this book to our grandson for Christmas. He is a graduate student at the Univ. of KY and was quite excited to receive it. He & some of his classmates recently went to the Gorge and got lost, so he feels this book is quite timely and useful. I'm sure they will be planning another trip to the Gorge soon, and will have at hand much better information about where they want to hike.
