When Wilderness Press published Sierra North in 1967, no other trail guide like it existed for the Sierra backcountry. The first run of 2800 copies sold out in less than two months and its success heralded the beginning of Wilderness Press. In the past 35 years, we have expanded our territories to cover California, Alaska, Hawaii, the U.S. Southwest, the Pacific Northwest, New England, Canada, and Baja California.
Wilderness Press continues to publish comprehensive, accurate, and readable outdoor books. Hikers, backpackers, kayakers, skiers, snowshoers, climbers, cyclists, and trail runners rely on Wilderness Press for accurate outdoor adventure information.
In its Top Trails series, Wilderness Press has paid special attention to organization so that you can find the perfect hike each and every time. Whether you’re looking for a steep trail to test yourself on or a walk in the park, a romantic waterfall or a city view, Top Trails will lead you there.
Each Top Trails guide contains trails for everyone. The trails selected provide a sampling of the best that the region has to offer. These are the "must-do" hikes, walks, runs and bike rides, with every feature of the area represented.
Every book in the Top Trails series offers:
· Maps and permit details
· Easy-to-follow trail notes
· Distances and approximate times
· Ratings and rankings for each trail
· The Wilderness Press commitment to accuracy and reliability
All books in the affordable and easy-to-use Top Trails series feature elevation profiles, detailed maps, driving directions, and "don’t get lost" trail milestones. Innovative trail-feature charts give at-a-glance information on which trails are child-friendly, which allow horses, where to catch a glimpse of bison, elk, or a grizzly, where to see wildflowers and autumn colors, which trips have the best photo opportunities, and which have camping opportunities. Each park receives more than 3 million visitors annually.From the Author:
During the summer of 2002, I had the privilege of living inside Yellowstone National Park while working for the Yellowstone Center for Resources in Mammoth Hot Springs. While collecting baseline scientific data for the ongoing Geographic Information Systems (GIS) database project focused on mapping the park’s microbial diversity, I surveyed several well-known frontcountry and seldom-seen backcountry thermal areas.
Between May 2002 and October 2004, I hiked every trail included in this book at least once. In many cases, I rehiked my favorite trails in both parks during several different seasons.
