Format: Paperback
We had little or no time to plan our short trip to the Olympic Peninsula, but we knew that the area is best enjoyed by walking into the forests, the mountains, or the beaches. This book includes descriptions of 29 hikes that do not require overnight stays, organized geographically. While there is no single map pointing out the locations of all the hikes, each geographical section has one, so it is not too difficult to find something nearby. There is also an ordered list of the hikes, from easiest (the .2 mile Madison Creek Falls hike, with minimal elevation gain) to most difficult (the Mount Zion hike, 3.5 miles with a 1340 foot gain).
We took six of the hikes listed and found the descriptions to be accurate. It was well worth the (relatively low) price.

those starting to hike or who want ideas of where to go. Having done all but 3 of the hikes in this book,I would recomend it. Erik gives clear directions and his rating system of easy to hard is very accurate. The book is pocket size and weighs little, with good refernces on time, maps and seasons. His North Cascade Dayhike book is also helpful to daytrippers.

HASH(0xa5a039b4) out of 5 stars Nice little book Nov. 22 2005
By Agent Cooper - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I used this guide to plan a recent trip to Olympic. It does contain a lot of good info but I wish it had just a little bit more. Perhaps some better detail on the maps would be nice. I would recommend using this little guide along with a good topographic map like the National Geographic topo map. Definitely a good book to have along with you.

This wasn't a bad little book, it was just eclipsed by the other book I bought, "Day Hike! Olympic Peninsula: The Best Trails You can Hike in a Day".
Both books were purchased 5/2007

HASH(0xa5a03d20) out of 5 stars Very good book for the casual day hiker. Feb. 15 2013
By Gwen P. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
My family and I purchased this book for our trip to ONP. We planned to take some smaller hikes (5 miles or less) and this book did a good job of pointing us in the right direction in determining which ones were extra special and which were simply ok. For each hike, there was a description of the hike, its difficulty, some things you could expect to see and its location. It's thin size was also a plus in that you could easily throw it in your backpack. I would recommend the book.
