This book provides great suggestions of where to hike, but don't rely on it for directions. The author gives very vague directions for getting to trail heads and guiding you through trails. I've gone on a lot of hikes with this book as my guide and often wonder if the auther has even been on the trail. His directions are so discombobulated that perhaps he heard a friend talk about hiking there once and then wrote about his friend's experience. Also, don't rely on the hiking times. Unless you're taking grandma with you, you'll finish a lot faster.
