From sun-baked steppes to surf-pounded coastlines, from alpine glaciers to hushed, cathedralesque forests, Washington offers magnificent hiking opportunities. Discover them with Hiking Washington and unlock the door to a lifetime of rewarding wilderness outings. Hiking Washington, formerly The Hiker's Guide to Washington, includes more than 850 miles of trails in Mount Rainier, North Cascades, and Olympic National Parks, Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument, national forests, wilderness areas, state parks, and other public lands. The trails lead to berries ripe for the picking in Meander Meadow, campsites among driftwood near an arch dug out by the pacific tides, and Cascade Pass, where one hears ice crashing down from the hanging glaciers of Johannesburg Mountain. This invaluable guidebook contains detailed descriptions of 90 hikes, accurate and up-to-date trail maps, and abundant information designed to make your outdoor experience as safe as it is memorable. It even includes tips on hiking with children. Whether you're a beginning day hiker of a long-haul backpacker in search of solitude and panoramas, Hiking Washington is a book that belongs in your pack.
