The author has completed every hike in this book and it shows. The trail descriptions are detailed and accurate. I like that all pertinent information is provided for each hike. He includes directions to the trailhead, distance of the hike, elevation gain and profile, difficulty level, and recommended direction to do each loop. Sometimes there are suggestions for shortening or lengthening the journey in a particular area. We have also enjoyed his descriptions of the sights and sounds to look and listen for along the way, along with the historical notes. And each hike has been a good one!

This is one of the best hiking books out right now. It is detailed and complete, with accurate maps and up to date trail information. It is obvious that the author actually hiked these trails and I really appreciate the historical information available, as well as wildlife references. This is an awesome book for birdwatchers, as well. The variety of hikes range from easy to strenuous ones, and there is a great range here. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who likes the ourdoors, regardless of ability, because there is something in here for everyone.
