Veteran rider and local author Santo Criscuolo becomes a personal mountain bike trail guide as he explores every twist and turn of single track in the Puget Sound region from Olympia to Bellingham and from the Kitsap Peninsula to Cle Elum and Cashmere. Not only does he tell bikers where to find the trails, he tells them how and when to ride them to avoid poor trail conditions, crowds, and potential natural disasters common out in the dirt. Delivered with a fresh, irreverent perspective, this highly detailed mountain bike guide uses easy quick-references so readers can find what they are searching for right away. Mountain Biking the Puget Sound Area also provides some of the most detailed maps of any guidebook available.
