Publisher Comments:

The Central Cascades offer some of the most accessible wilderness areas for urban Seattleites, with trails no less stunning or enjoyable than those in more remote regions.

Day Hiking: Central Cascades includes 50% more hikes than other regional guidebooks and focuses on cream-of-the-crop trails in these areas: Whidbey Island; Skykomish, Wenatchee, and Icicle River Valleys; the Entiat Mountains; the Lake Chelan area; and more.

Compact in size, this is the most up-to-date guide for the area, organized along highways and other travel corridors, and with an emphasis on trails that are 12 miles or less, round-trip, each of them hiked by the author.


  • 125 trails, each rated on an overall-quality scale of 1 to 5
  • Full-color photo insert and overview map
  • 1% of sales donated to the WTA, benefiting our Washington trails

I love this whole series. This book is the one that first made me want to hike in the Central Cascade areas. They have color maps of where the hike is located plus a cheat sheet in the front of the main draws of the hike (wildflowers, waterfalls, views etc) which is so helpful on top of in-depth information on the hike and tips for hiking in the area in the front! I would recommend any of the books in the series for anyone wanting to hike in the PNW
