Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Lace up your boots and sample forty-seven hikes in the Mount Adams, Indian Paradise, and Trapper Creek Wilderness Areas. Connected by the Pacific Crest Trail, these rugged areas offer very different environments and hiking experiences. Climb the glaciated slopes of Mount Adams along the South Climb Route or the North Cleaver; hike through old-growth forest where Native Americans collected huckleberries each summer; or take in views of the Cascade Range as far north as Mount Rainier and as far south as the Three Sisters in central Oregon. Veteran hiker Fred Barstad introduces you to these beautiful sights and many more.

Inside youll find:

• in-depth trail information

• detailed trail maps

• elevation profiles

• accurate directions from major access points

• difficulty ratings for each hike

Whether youre a day hiker or backcountry camper, old hand or novice, youll find trails suited to your ability and interest in Mount Adams Country.
