A hiking guide to one of Alaska's most stunning outdoor getaways
Alaska is vast, wild, and stunningly beautifuland notoriously difficult to get around. The Kenai Peninsula, with its proximity to Anchorage, is the gateway to the great outdoors of Alaska for vast numbers of visitors and locals alike. The Kenai offers coastal, forest, subalpine, tundra, and even glacial hiking opportunities accessible to most. The hikes in this book range from an easy half-mile walk through a boggy lowland meadow to more challenging multi-day hikes through mountainous terrain. As with all of the 50 Hikes series, this volume provides the kind of narrative descriptions that allow you to choose which hikes to actually take and equips you with critically acclaimed maps that help you navigate to and from where you are hiking.
