This book is a great addition to any hikers collection who have dogs. Since the Pacific Northwest has many areas that allow and don't allow dogs, this book is great in finding those best hikes with dogs. The author gives a great description of how to get to the location, description of trail, and necessary information about the trail. When I was looking for trails on-line it did not give great information on if the trails were day hikes or overnight. The book give excellent descriptions of these trails
