Key Points/Quotes
"[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
