HASH(0x9d019948) out of 5 stars Hiking (and Canyoneering) Zion and Bryce April 13 2014
By Fritz R. Ward - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Falcon Hiking Guides are generally fairly comprehensive guides to the region they cover. Beautiful, with lots of color plates and detailed maps, these books are generally the definitive guides to a region, from which shorter books like the Best Easy Day Hike series are often drawn. I love these book for their texture, production, and for the routes they list, and this one is no exception. It offers everything from short walks of a mile to scenic overlooks, to long multi day backpack trips. It also suggests several routes which might more accurately be considered canyoneering than hiking proper. Not all hikers will be able to use all the routes described in this volume, but they certainly sound exciting.

Not surprisingly, the vast majority of the 60 routes described in this book are in Zion and Bryce proper. Two hikes south of Zion, 5 hikes in and around Cedar Breaks, a fabulous National Monument in its own right, and 7 hikes near Bryce in Paunsaugunt county round out the book. Most of the hikes are in Zion, and a surprising number of these are off the beaten track. I've been to Zion on many occasions and was completely unaware of the backcountry route along Deep Creek to its confluence with the Virgin River. At 28 plus miles, this seems like a spectacular route, though I'm pretty convinced my wife would not join me on it. Similarly, I am willing to bet relatively few people visit Wildcat Canyon or Cable Mountain compared to the more popular hikes within the valley. Bryce is also well represented though. From popular hikes like the Navajo Loop and the Rim Trail to the far more challenging Under the Rim Trail, you can find just about every trail in Bryce here.

I did have a few questions about the text however. I'm not sure why the authors did not include the loop at the end of the Watchman trail in their route description or mileage for the trail. This changes the mileage from 2 to 3.2 miles, but adds little in the way of effort since the loop is atop a mesa and offers great views of Zion. Similarly, I'm not sure why some miles are out and back, but other hike descriptions list miles one way. And I really don't understand why the Queen's Garden route is listed as a one way hike when it can easily be made into one of the most spectacular 3 mile loop hikes in the western US. I docked the book a star on my review for these cavils, but it is still a great guidebook, and does what one hopes for in a Falcon Guide: introduces the reader to some of the best hikes in a given area, and including some of the less popular and least traveled routes in these heavily visited parks. Colorful photos, detailed maps, and elevation profiles add to the ease of use for this book, and like most Falcon Guides of its type, this one comes highly recommended.
