* Highlights the most spectacular trails in six states and two provinces
* Personal picks of a trail-tested team of Northwest hiking icons
Hiking the Great Nothwest is a collection of classic hikes and trails in the Pacific Northwest, as selected by the late godfathers of Northwest hiking, Ira Spring and Harvey Manning. Hikes in Washington's Alpine Lakes, Oregon's Rogue River Wilderness, the Canadian Rockies, Idaho's Sawtooths, Montana's Bob Marshall Wilderness, Wyoming's Grand Teton National Park, and California's Mount Shasta are included. You'll find essential information for each trail -- when to go, elevation, distance, and more. Each trip, day hike or overnight is chosen for extraordinary views, flower-filled alpine meadows, virgin forests, wildlife, and solitude.
