My kids gave me this book as a gift last Fathers' Day and I have been knocking off chapters one the trails within it since. The book is a solid compilation of trail data, area history and turn-by-turn navigation that's been vetted by the authors. The book's Before-You-Go section gets into trail ratings, tips to evaluate and outfit off-road abilities and vehicles, driving tips and techniques, and gear checklists. Well-organized, thoughtfully written - every glove box of any off-road explorer should have one.
