3rd Edition - A Disappointment Jan. 14 2001
By Robert W. Audretsch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
When I first started hiking the Grand Canyon I considered John Annerino's "Hiking the Grand Canyon" to be great! Then in 1986 this guide was "Revised and Expanded." I was a bit disappointed as it was not indeed revised in any significant way. But it was still a good guide for the trails. In 1997 Rod Adkison's "Hiking Grand Canyon National Park" appeared and I began to use it more and more as a reference guide. Now Annerino's "Hiking the Grand Canyon" has come out in a "Third Edition, Completely Updated." I looked over this edition today and in just a few minutes found: an incorrect phone number; an incorrect area code; a book recommended to visitors to use to tour the canyon rim that has been out-of-print for many years; 2003 statistics; a bibliography without the most important recent books on canyon geology and lacking other significant canyon hiking books! Frankly this is only a cosmetic revision, and not a very good one at that! Start with Adkison's book first. Avoid this edition until the publisher does a decent edit!

To be completely fair to the author his hiking descriptions and mileages are generally without serious error. So if you have an earlier edition of Annerino continue to use it.

Feel free to check my profile for my backgound regarding Grand Canyon as well as hiking. And feel free to check out my Listmania list "Grand Canyon - Best Books."

A Cross Between a Trail Guide and a ??? July 28 2007
By Robert Summers - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was disappointed by this book. Mr. Annerino seems to be trying to impress us with his knowledge far too often and is long-winded most of the time. I much prefer authors who try to inform instead of impress, especially in a book that is basically a how-to-hike-in-the-Grand-Canyon book.

For example:
"... the Tonto Trail is the major east-west camino through the Grand Canyon." Now many, maybe even most, people who live in the parts of the US with a Spanish influence know that camino is Spanish for road. But how about other English speakers around the world?

Or another example:
"Assuming that the Colorado River isn't rumbling along at 30,000 cfs or more, you can follow the left-hand (south) side of the river ...". How much is 30,000 cfs? Is that unusual? I think the author meant that to say something like "if the river doesn't cover the trail, you can ...", but I don't know for sure.

I much prefer Hiking Grand Canyon National Park, 2nd (Regional Hiking Series) for planning a trip and Hiking the Grand Canyon's Geology (Hiking Geology) for understanding the geology.
Preparing to hike the canyon. Feb. 2 2014

Second time reading this book. Great information along with phone numbers and addresses. Also sent it to others going to the canyon.
Great Information Jan. 26 2012
By D. B. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book has good information about what a hiker will encounter on the trails in the Grand Canyon. I personally don't feel that ANY author could detail all the nooks and cranny's, twists and turns, and ups and downs that a hiker will encounter while hiking in the Canyon, so, I think that expectations should be evaluated for sure, but, as a reference - both about trails and about history, this book is awesome.

AMC guide of the Grand Canyon Feb. 18 2013
By Barry - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
For us folks from east of the Missisppi this guide is comparable to the earlier Appalacian Mountain Club (AMC) guide books - before they got too big to carry. Only lacks a decent set of trail maps and it would be a five star. Lots of good background to go along with trail descriptions. Definately worth the money.
