Overview

* Escape crowded trailheads by hiking terrific old forest service roads

* Find a variety of challenging hikes and detailed trail descriptions

* Take part in a new movement converting roads to trails

The first book of its kind, Roads to Trails: Northwest Washington was put together by a team of dedicated hikers wanting to utilize decommissioned forest service roads as new hiking trails. These trails take the seasoned hiker off the beaten path and offer an unsurpassed wilderness experience.

The criteria used to select the hikes for this book reflect the individual hiker's particular biases toward what makes a great hike-spectacular views, alpine meadows, verdant forests, mountain lakes and streams, wildlife, and solitude. There's something for everyone in this book.

Find detailed trail descriptions, including mileage, elevations, maps needed, driving directions, and tips for trail maintenance and bushwhacking on the backroads of Washington.
