Synopses & Reviews
The mountain region of Washington state's North Cascades are filled with day hikes for trailblazers of all skill levels. From the Canadian border to the North Cascades Highway, Northwest trail expert Mike McQuaide leads hikers to 60 of the best day-hike trails in the region. With routes for both newbie hikers and veterans with hundreds of miles on their boots, each trail is rated from easy to moderate to extreme, and includes maps, photographs, and elevation profiles, as well as difficulty level, fee information, trail conditions, and more. With entertaining, accurate, and contemporary writing, this is the ultimate guide to day hiking in the North Cascades.
"[Most guidebooks are by] backpackers who occasionally day hike. But most people are day hikers, who occasionally backpack. And that's the key difference to this series." --Ron C. Judd
"The series . . . earns points for rating each individual trip on a five-scale and for providing a comparative overview of all hikes in each book's introductory pages. For those of us who like to cherry-pick trails, ratings simplify our task." --Seattle Times
"The presentation of basic facts (distance, elevation gain, maps, permits, etc.) is excellent and easy to follow. In addition to helpful topographical maps, the guides feature elevation profiles--an inspired addition!" --The Olympian
MIKE MCQUAIDE has been published in The Seattle Times, and many other publications and websites. An avid trail runner and triathlete, as well as a mountaineer, snowboarder, and cyclist, he lives in Luxembourg.
