Imagine hiking along a wooded trail in Washington and stumbling upon the stone foundation of a crumbled building or rusted railroad ties from an abandoned Northern Pacific Railway line. Hiking through History Washington profiles 40 hikes (all trails, of varying degrees of difficulty), will go beyond simply stating miles and directions and GPS coordinates for each hike to include rich descriptions of the history underfoot. This book is the perfect companion for any hiker with an interest in history, complete with rich photos, detailed maps, and sidebars detailing enough historical information to satisfy every curiosity along the way.
