Must Have for First Time Glacier Adventurer Aug. 27 2012
By Ashlee wilkes - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Took this on our first trip to Glacier and Waterton this summer and I'm very glad we had it! Hikes are grouped by area and numbered for quickly finding the right one. We did several day hikes and just one overnight backpack and this guide helped us determine what to do in each part of the parks. Good color pictures, elevation profiles and gain/loss, GPS coordinates, and trail descriptions as well as instructions for parking and general tips. Extremely helpful.

The only thing I don't love about the book is the difficulty ratings it gives. Mostly accurate but we found the "moderately strenuous" hike to Lincoln Lake to be very hard and the trail was very overgrown and this was not mentioned in the two page description in the book, so parts of it need to be updated. But the logistical information is all current and correct as far as I experienced so next time I'll look onling (TripAdvisor, maybe?) for trail conditions

My heart raced as I looked through this book! Feb. 23 2013
By Steve - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is beautiful in visual asthetics and content. The colored pictures are inspiring and a teaser to want to see it in person. The maps are very informative and easy to read. The descriptions are thorough and well written. I had gotten some books out of the library to try to determine what I wanted to buy to help us prepare for our visit to hike and camp Glacier National Park. I was discouraged, but I found this book on Amazon. I read the reviews from the other editions, and then this edition. The author has clearly listened to the reviewers and has made a visually stimulating and informative tool to hike this National Park calling us to come and explore!

Great guide Dec 28 2012
By kw-reader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This hiking guide is everything that I expected- good photos, trail maps, and a useful description of the hikes. The short description includes the hike's length, elevation gain, maximum elevation, difficulty rating,topo map associated with hike, and trailhead directions. Includes day hikes and backpack trips.

The guide includes every hike I had planned to take.

Good Book For Hiking in Glacier National Park Sept. 3 2013
By Modrocker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book, used in conjunction with the park maps, online websites, and advice from other hikers, is a valuable resource. Some of the hikes are labeled differently in the book like the Highline Trail (referenced in at least two places in the book but only once in the index and also labeled as The Garden Wall in one place) which made it hard to find in the book. But, otherwise the book came in handy deciding which hikes to try and which ones to pass on. The maps were good and the pictures were nice. We liked how the hikes were broken out by the mileage and points of interest as they are on the trail signs in the park. This helped us decide which side hikes to take and which ones to save for next time. We also liked how the book showed the elevation gains and losses which also helped us decide which hikes to do. I would definitely suggest this book to anyone planning to hike in Glacier National Park. No book is going to be perfect but this one was what we required. When used with other resources, it provided valuable information.

Great Guide...!!! Sept. 8 2013
By Muthu - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My perception of hiking has completely changed after using this guide. Each and every trail in Glacier is explained with trail profile and description. This will help in deciding various hikes based on your mood, stamina and willingness in the morning. We were able nicely mix and match various hikes to optimize the trip. If you are going to Glacier and a serious hiker, I highly recommend this.
