Praise For…

"[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

"The Day Hike! series, published by Sasquatch Books is my favorite resource for finding a great hike to do with my girlfriends or family. The hikes are listed by location, with an overall rating, a rating for difficulty, the elevation gain, hike distance, best season and approximate hiking time. With colorful pictures and fun maps, even my six year old son loves looking at these books"
—Northwest Healthy Mama
