This comprehensive guide presents, in words and photographs, the very best hiking opportunities Utah has to offer. Some of the trails wind through deep redrock canyons, while others climb lofty snow-covered peaks. Visit a 700-year-old Anasazi cliff dwelling on the Colorado Plateau or discover a pristine alpine lake in the Uinta Mountains. About half of the hikes can be completed in one day, but many take more time-they range in length from 4.5 miles to 33.5 miles. Over 250 color and black & white photographs and 80 detailed trail maps are included to help you choose the adventure that is right for you!

Utah's Favorite Hiking Trails is now in its second edition.
It has been updated and expanded with 48 additional pages of new hiking trails, maps, and color photographs. About a fourth of the book covers hiking opportunities in the state's five national parks, while the remainder is devoted to wilderness areas, national monuments, and other scenic but currently unprotected areas. Some of the trails lead to pristine alpine lakes and some climb the state's highest peaks. Others wind through Utah's redrock canyons or visit the cliff dwellings of the prehistoric Anasazi Indians. The book is also supported by a new internet website where hikers can get the latest information on trail conditions and interact with other outdoor enthusiasts.From the Author:
Utah's Favorite Hiking Trails has allowed me to bring together two of my life's greatest passions, photography and the outdoors, and I hope it will give my readers a small measure of the joy I experienced in writing it. But most of all I hope it will instill in them a greater appreciation of the beauty and the mystery that exists in our precious wild places.
