5-0 out of 5 stars If you love Washington and love to hike...
You need to get this book. It's indispensable in helping you choose what to hike, what to bring, what to leave at home, and what to expect when you get there (especially the little annoying hidden things, like parking fees). Seeing the maps of the hiking trails helped me a lot too. I hope you get this book before you go hiking because you might regret it if you don't.

5-0 out of 5 stars Glove Compartment - MUST HAVE
This is the best hiking/camping book for Washington. It is small, just the right amount of information to get me there and get me excited. Great descriptions, it has definantly helped with my spring hiking and camping choices. Perfect for ever glove compartment!

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome!
Great book. Very thorough and informative. I actually bought one for a friend who was moving to Seattle, but I liked it so much I kept it for myself! ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars best hikes with dogs Western Washington
I disagree with the first two reviews. If you want a book to give you dog friendly hikes this is a start but the trail information on the hikes I tried was not very accurate. I even got stopped on one hike where the trail had been washed out several years prior to the publishing of this book. Use another source to actually make the hike or you will be disappointed.

5-0 out of 5 stars Put Paw to Trail and Get Going!
Dogs belong with us on the trails.I gnash my teeth every time I think that they are prohibited from so many National Park Trails!After all what does more damage, our heavy lug sole boots or their soft, quiet paws?As a woman hiking, I feel so much more comfortable with my friendly canine companionThere is something special about being in the wilderness with another species, almost like having a translator along, Dan cathes this feeling.He gives excellent advice on excellent hikes. The directions are clear, the hikes well described and well chosen.I have used and enjoyed the book. 5-0 out of 5 stars Droopy gives it four paws
Eighty dog-friendly hikes will keep you busy all year.Textual descriptions walk you through the trails, giving you a step-by-step description of what to expect.Also included is the mileage, hiking time, elevation gain, best hiking months for the trail, contour map, ranger district contact information, and photos.The only downside is that the directions to the trail are incorporated into the textual description -- this makes for a seamless description of getting to and hiking on the trail, but a little cumbersome for actual driving.However, Droopy the Explorer Dog definitely recommends this winner! ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Experienced WA hiker does not recommend this book..........
...and recommend in its stead : Hiking Washington's Geology, ISBN: 0898865484.4-0 out of 5 stars Opinionated guide but great in all respects
I have read countless hiking books but never have I encountered a preface like this book. Authors Spring and Manning spend many pages going into a diatribe about how the Forest Service has ruined many Washington trails and how ATV's and encroachment has destroyed much of the pristine beauty of the state. I agree with their comments wholeheartedly, but wonder if such "strident" opinions (to some people) are really suitable in a hiking guide. For me, the political opinions were not a distraction, but I want to mention them in case you are expecting simply a typical guidebook with no ancillary commentary.2-0 out of 5 stars Classic = Old
My criticism of this guide applies to all of the so-called "classic" hikes series. It is difficult for me to write, because Harvey Manning was once one of the best guidebook writers on the planet, and Ira Spring's photos are awesome.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Top quality.
I've spent a fair amount of days at The Mountain without any trail guide book, but decided I needed one to get full enjoyment out of the park.The book has all the information you need to choose a hike based on highlights, season, difficulty, and solitude.
5-0 out of 5 stars Day hiking wonderland!
We purchased two books on Mount Rainier hiking.This is by far the best.In fact we didn't even need to buy the other book.Ron does a surperb job of descriping each trail in detail.The ratings from easy to extremely difficult are very accurate.He gives elevation gain and rates each trail as far as beauty.The ratings of each trail is from 1 to 5 backpackers instead of stars and we found them to be completely true.We are backpackers as well as day hikers, but we wanted only to day hike these trails, so this book is just what we needed.My advise is to buy this book, it is really all you will need if you only want to day hike.Happy hiking!!!! I hope you enjoy Mount Rainier as much as we did.

5-0 out of 5 stars A must for any trip to Mt. Rainier
I was extremely pleased with this book.It is geared toward hikers of every level of fitness and ability.I found the NPS website confusing in its description of hikes, but this book did a very good job breaking down the various hikes by location, length, difficulty, and change of elevation, as well as providing a good description of what to expect.I took several hikes while at Mt. Rainier and found the book to be very accurate.It also has a number of practical tips which I found useful since I had never hiked at altitude before.I encountered other hikers who lacked guides and they were clueless and missed out on a lot.If you are going to take the time to get to the park, you should spend a few bucks on a book to guide you the rest of the way. ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Slightly Misleading Information...
Although I am a huge fan of Falcon guides, this edition definitely let me down.Unfortunately it doesn't differentiate between Olympic National Park and Olympic National Forest trails.This becomes a big deal when you spend a significant amount of time planning your trip only to arrive at the trailhead and find that you need an Olympic National Forest permit, because the trailhead parking falls in the national forest, not the national park, and you need to drive back 15 miles to get one.If you are prepared with a National Parks pass, not a National Forest pass, this is definitely frustrating.In fact, a significant number of trails in the book are in the national forest, not the national park.Because this is an older book (1995) it also doesn't include some of the nicer Falcon guide features found in the newer books like the trails being broken down into categories in the beginning based on the types of features the trail has (i.e. waterfalls versus alpine meadows).It also doesn't include any attempt at topo maps, which is a definite downside.I'm still a fan of the Falcon guides, but I think I'll stick to the ones that are more recently published from now on...

3-0 out of 5 stars needs a rev, focused too much on backpacking
Decent overview but hard to comprehend if you've never been there.Poor maps, little on the visitor center and tourist areas.Great if you have a topo and have been there before.Not great if it's your first visit.

4-0 out of 5 stars When Islands Slam into Continents, Great Hiking is Born
Olympic is a beautiful park with diverse terrain, serious vertical gain, rain forests, waterfalls, northern pacific coast, glaciered peaks and miles and miles of trails for both day hikes and extensive backcountry excursions.The falcon guide does a good job organizing the park, providing acceptable overview references, including compelling photography (for black and white) and selecting a diversity of hike distances.There short hikes, moderate and long day hikes and multi-day excursions (though the emphasis is on the latter two).You sill need to print out a map from the national park service web site to orient yourself in the park as you flip through the pages (I often felt lost with just the couple of overview maps) but in general it is a really helpful guide. ...

Editorial Review

Whether you're planning an actual trip to the Olympic Mountains or searching for the vicarious thrills of a smart guidebook, Robert L. Wood's encyclopedic knowledge of this enchanting wilderness at the edge of the Pacific will inform and enthrall. This is not a quickie job: the author has hiked every one of the trails he details here (over a hundred) backwards and forwards, most of them more than once, and his enthusiasm is infectious. Before you know it you'll be an expert too--rattling off, for instance, peaks visible from Dodger Point (Rainier, Olympus, the Bailey Range), and the name for the "noisy chatter" along the Putvin Trail (Whitehorse Creek). Divided into two main sections--Leeward and Windward--this handy guide covers the bulk of national forest and parklands worth venturing into. Concise yet thorough, it includes all the necessities--elevation, mileage, maps, landmarks, vegetation, and possible wildlife sightings--in an easy-to-read format. A must for the would-be visitor and armchair adventurer both. ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Not a "normal" guide book
If you like Falcon type guide books, you probably won't care for this book.Trail descriptions don't offer elevation gain, they don't tell you what the trail has to offer (great views, low traffic, bears, et cetera), descriptions are not well organized, and the book does not offer descriptions of how you might link say several trails together to provide a loop - in other guide books you might hike the Seven Lakes Basin Loop, while in this book you have to find each individual trail description and connect them for yourself.Really, this offers little more than what you can find from just using your topo - of course a topo offers more info than you find here.For me, it defeats the purpose of guide book - which I use to guide me toward the trail I want to take QUICKLY - what's the elevation gain, what does this trail offer, what time of year is best, trail tips, et cetera.This book somehow manages to avoid all of this and still be very dense with information and convey the information in a very disorganized fashion.In addition, when hiking the Seven Lakes Loop, my topo AND the park map both listed trail names differently than how this book listed them - possibly an error in the book and possibly just outdated information.
3-0 out of 5 stars Many hikes, but missing key information
First, please note that I have purchased this book but have not yet truly used it (i.e., I haven't yet actually gone to the Olympics).My purpose in purchasing it was to try to get a sense for the hiking options in the area compared to other national park destinations.
4-0 out of 5 stars Do yourself a favor...
We used the book to research our hikes before we arrived in the area. It helped us plan our route, time and stopover points. It gave a number of clues to things we didn't want to see as well. Couple of things you should know when using the book though. Trail descriptions don't always start at a trailhead so you might have a longer trip to get there than you think. Significant information is contained in the introduction to each of the sections and without it you will be confused by some of the trail information.But the biggest clue is this...don't try to use this book without a detailed map of the area. You will have lots of trouble finding trailheads if you use only the book. For example, Hike 133 tells you to take a specific FS road. However, there are two major forks that are not marked and without a map you'll have the opportunity to spend 3 hours driving each option like we did, on some "interesting" logging roads. You can get the maps at local stores like the Merchantile in Lake Quinault. We are very happy that this book directed us to the South Fork Hoh Trail (Hike 162) which was outstanding. The trails from the visitor center are a disappointment after that great trail. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A Great Hiking Guide, To "The Mountain"
This book is great. It gives detailed descriptions of the trail, detailed maps and great photos. Many hikes can be done in less than 6 hours. This guide has helped me decide on what trails to see on my trip to Seattle-Washington-Mount Rainier in Aug. of 2005.
2-0 out of 5 stars A Yawner
The best thing you can say about this umpteenth edition of this guide is that it has some nice color pictures. Even then, though, they aren't always accurate - like the picture of Ranger Falls, which really isn't Ranger Falls, but a lower falls about a quarter-mile down the trail from the real Ranger Falls. Or the picture of the "Avalanche lily" on page 69, which is really a glacier lily. You'd think a pair of old veterans like Ira Spring and Harvey Manning would know things like that.2-0 out of 5 stars Pretty pictures; but info shows its age
The new color pics are great, but one has to wonder if Harvey, et al, are letting the details slip in their golden years. One whole section, for trails on the (washed out) West Side Road, tells you to get on the "shuttle bus" and be dropped off at the trailhead -- when in fact no such bus exists, and probably won't for years, according to park rangers. This minor inconvenience adds as much as 10 miles to some of those hikes -- and these distances are NOT spelled out in the guide. There also seeems to be sloppy editing; more than one altitude-gain stats are wrong, as in, 2,300 rather than 3,200. That's a big difference. Also, like other Mountaineers guides released recently, the authors in this one seem to be at war with their own publishers. Example: The route they suggest to Indian Henry's Hunting Grounds is no longer even maintained by the park, and another route is described on the next page as "safer." Why, then, include the old route? The authors might want to spend less time defending their old choices and more time making new ones. I'm frankly not interested in the best hikes in the park circa 1965. In sum: Worth having for the pics, but supplement it with something else for trail data. ... Read more

Hiking Washington's Geology is a well-written, informative book that describes the geologic evolution of a wide and varied landscape. I especially appreciate the detailed directions on how to get to the trailheads and equally detailed descriptions of things to look for while hiking. This book is a must-have for anyone interested in the geologic natural history of Washington....

I only got to spend a few days in North Cascades Nat'l Park so I had to find a guide that gave me the most bang for my buck. This is the book...
5-0 out of 5 stars Really Good Guide!
I own the authors trail running book and liked it so I bought his new book as soon as it came out. It really fills the void in North Cascade guide books-it covers the Mt. Baker side very nicely, where other books ignore it. A definte must if you hike up here! I've carried it in my pack since I bought it. I like the rating system, the kid guide, the directions, and the topos - I also like that it isn't bulky or heavy. I met Mike Mcquaide at a book signing recentley - he really loves the trail!

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome job
I got this book because I read Mike McQuaide's "Trail Running Guide to Western Washington" and thought that anyone who could run more than 50 trails around here had to slow down eventually to write a hiking book. Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Nice little book
I used this guide to plan a recent trip to Olympic.It does contain a lot of good info but I wish it had just a little bit more.Perhaps some better detail on the maps would be nice.I would recommend using this little guide along with a good topographic map like the National Geographic topo map.Definitely a good book to have along with you.

4-0 out of 5 stars A good guide for
those starting to hike or who want ideas of where to go. Having done all but 3 of the hikes in this book,I would recomend it. Erik gives clear directions and his rating system of easy to hard is very accurate. The book is pocket size and weighs little, with good refernces on time, maps and seasons.

We had little or no time to plan our short trip to the Olympic Peninsula,but we knew that the area is best enjoyed by walking into the forests, themountains, or the beaches.This book includes descriptions of 29 hikesthat do not require overnight stays, organized geographically.While thereis no single map pointing out the locations of all the hikes, eachgeographical section has one, so it is not too difficult to find somethingnearby.There is also an ordered list of the hikes, from easiest (the .2mile Madison Creek Falls hike, with minimal elevation gain) to mostdifficult (the Mount Zion hike, 3.5 miles with a 1340 foot gain).Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars An Essential Planner
First of all, I am Bryce Henderson Stevens, and I am not the author of this book.By a coincidence, we share the same first and last name, and I resided in Olympia, Washington, for many years, and have made some of the hikes detailed in the book I am reviewing.I now live in Clinton, Tennessee, but visit my Olympia home whenever I am able.I purchased copies of this book in part because the author and I share the same first and last name, and I invite my friends to examine it and discover the authors' pictures and realize that I am NOT the author.That being said, my recommecation is still based on having hiked many of these trails, and having several hiking guides in my personal library.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great for hiking trails close to the city
This book has a bunch of really good hikes right near Seattle and the Eastside which is what sets it apart from others I have seen (although it also has some farther out in the mountains). There are a lot of great options if you don't feel like driving too far. Really good if you have kids, or if you want some hard and some easy hikes. The book says it has 40 hikes available year-round, which is great in the winter months. Definitely recommended.

5-0 out of 5 stars useful and informative
Even if you already own a Seattle hiking guide, this book is worth purchasing.It includes many often-overlooked hikes and trail-runs that involve minimal driving time.Each hike has an informational box with pertinent facts e.g. distance, difficulty, terrain, so that browsing for what you want is remarkably easy.Unlike other local guidebooks, the maps include markers that correspond to salient features in the trail descriptions, making them infinitely more useful.The descriptions themselves are well written, precise, and include interesting historical facts.Plus, as the book is brand-new, the trail information is all up to date. ...

We're new to Seattle, and find the outdoor options almost overwhelming. Cascades? Olympics? Mount Ranier? Something else? This book lists plenty of hikes for all experience levels, nearly all of which you can do in a day. There's a great variety, and almost every one of them sounds appealing. We like it a lot! ...

5-0 out of 5 stars The "Bible" of the Washington Cascades
Whether you are a climber, a hiker, a car traveler, or just an armchair explorer, the Beckey guides are the indispensible resources for your mountain experience. The three volumes are filled with information about the natural and human history of the Washington Cascades, as well as complete route and access data for every significant summit. The photos alone are reason enough to own these books. If you are interested in really "knowing" the Washington Cascades, you MUST have them in your library. Highest possible recommendation.

5-0 out of 5 stars An indispensabe reference book for Northwest Climbers.
I have used this Guidebook so many times in the past 12 years that I've had to purchase it three times. The definitive section on the Picket Range alone is worth the price of the book.Read more
