Publisher Comments:

Most hiking guides are written by backpackers who occasionally day hike. But most people are day hikers who occasionally backpack So Sasquatch Books has created a series from the ground up just for them. These guides are written for people who want to get out and sample the vaunted Northwest lifestyle with as little hassle and unpredictability as possible. Yet the fresh style, content, and design will also win sales and loyalty from more experienced hikers. Organizing the books in the way that people travel — by major roads and highways — makes it easier to find trails without having to cross-reference three or four different guides. Ron C. Judd, the region's favorite and best-selling outdoors writer, conceived this new series.

-- Complete trail descriptions, every trail researched and hiked

-- Easy-to-read USGS topo maps, including elevation profiles

-- Clear, up-to-date driving directions

-- Overall trail ratings

-- Mileage and estimated hiking time, elevation gain, trail conditions, difficulty level, best season, map references, exploring options, access, permits required, special notes on dogs, bikes, and kids, and where to find more information

-- Quick-reference chart to season and difficulty level

-- Sharp, contemporary black-and-white photographs

Synopsis:

Day Hike! Olympic Peninsula uncovers the regions best trails for day trippers, with more than 70 day-hikes from Hoodsport to Hurricane Ridge to the Pacific coast. The routes range from easy to extreme, allowing everyone from young children and seniors to serious climbers to enjoy this scenic area. Trails are rated on a scale of one to five based on views, water elements such as streams and waterfalls, crowding, and level of fun. Each trail description provides essential details, including mileage and estimated hiking time, elevation gain, conditions, best season, and special notes on dogs, bikes, and children. Clear, up-to-date driving directions ensure hikers dont get lost on the way to the trailhead. This updated edition covers changes made to trails damaged by recent harsh winters as well as three new hikes and a completely revised section on Dosewallips.
