Falcon Guides Hiking North Carolina

rated 4 of 5 stars If you are hiking in North Carolina and want to visit as many trails as possible, than this is the book for you. It covers a lot of the trails available in detail. The Background This is an amazing book and I specifically purchased the eBook version to help me plan camping/hiking trips when I was in North Carolina. I used this guide to plan and go on 6 trips. I had 3 more planned but didn’t have enough time in NC to complete them all. The book provides a good level of detail on all of the locations… Full review

Keystone Trails Association Pennsylvania Hiking Trails: 13th Edition

rated 3 of 5 stars This is Keystone Trails Association's catch-all book for Pennsylvania hiking trails. It is not meant to serve as a guidebook for any specific trail, but instead, its purpose is to introduce hikers to a variety of trails throughout the state — variety in length, difficulty, geographic features and region. Background: Keystone Trails Association (KTA) is a venerable organization that works with hiking clubs, volunteers, and government agencies to protect and advocate for PA trails. In doing so,… Full review

Adirondack Mountain Club Adirondack Trails High Peaks Region

rated 5 of 5 stars THE Bible of Adirondack hiking. My family is from the Adirondacks and when I started hiking there, they told me to get this book and they weren't wrong! If you want to hike the ADKs this is a MUST have. All the 46er peak trails are here and the trail descriptions tell you what you will encounter almost down to the tenth of a mile. The ADK is a great organization and they don't print lousy materials. If you are hiking in the Northeast, this is the book for you!  Full review

Wilderness Press Hiker's Guide to the High Sierra - Yosemite

rated 3.5 of 5 stars A classic book with a good, but not great, topo map and good descriptions of the trails (if you can find em). I wanted to like this book, I really did. It fits in your pocket, it has short and easy trail descriptions along with a handy map. I was just disappointed when I actually used it in Yosemite because some of the trailhead descriptors were just a little vague, which doesn't help if it's your first time there. That being said, the majority of the book is very useful. The book does a good job… Full review

Rick La Belle Rock Climbs of Central Washington

rated 4 of 5 stars I just got this book on long tern "loan" from a guy at work who is too busy to use it. To be honest, I don't really plan on returning it. Does that make me a bad guy? I was pleasantly surprised to learn of some nice climbing near my home in the semi-desert of Eastern Washington. I had been going to L-Worth and Vantage to fight for climbs with the hoards of yuppies from the wet side of the state and now I don't have too. The climbs in the book are mostly in my climbing range (5.8-5.10a), though most… Full review

Cosmic Ray Hiking Phoenix - Favorite Day Hikes

rated 5 of 5 stars We have been using this book for a year now, and find that Cosmic Ray usually hits the nail on the head concerning difficulty and trail conditions.  With two young kids, these are very important attributes.  In addition, it's funny too. Full review

Adirondack Mountain Club Adirondack Trails Northville-Placid Trail

rated 5 of 5 stars If you are planning a hike on the Northville Placid Trail you absolutely need this guide, 4th Edition, as well as the supplement to the guide that covers a reroute of the road-walk on Cedar River Road into the woods.  The supplement is available online.  You should also check out the new website devoted to the Northville Placid Trail - www.nptrail.org.  There you will find latest trail conditions, hike planning help, a way to report trail conditions online, and more.  Full review

Heel And Toe Publishers Rock Climbing at Vedauwoo, Wyoming

rated 4 of 5 stars This guidebook is an extension of the original "Heel and Toe; Climbs of Greater Vedauwoo, Wyoming" written by Harper and Kelman, Heel and Toe Publishers ('94). If you can't find a copy of the original, then buy this newer edition. It is very comprehensive, well-organized, covers more route information and is significantly more informative than its current competition. The content is commendably written in scholarly fashion by someone with literally decades of experience climbing at Vedauwoo. Yes,… Full review
