Written by hikers for hikers; we have personally hiked all the trails many times. We get the details right because we were there. Good guidebooks should stimulate. Pictures are worth a 1000 words; Over 300 full color photographs show, rather than tell, what you can expect to see on the trails and why you might want to go and see for yourself. You see color when you hike. Our books are as exciting as the trail itself. Good guidebooks should have good maps. Our topographic, color custom maps use color coded trails so you can see visually the variety of terrain on the trails at a glance. Hike options for shorter and easier hikes are detailed for the more difficult hikes. Good guidebooks should be user friendly with easy to find important data like how to get to the trailhead, what kind of vehicle you need to get there. Our roads are designated paved, gravel or 4WD. Time and mileage to drive to the trailheads is listed as well as facilities at each trailhead. Guidebooks should be accurate. We calculate the total elevation gain and descent for every hike. This is very different from subtracting the starting point from the end point. Trails go up and down all along the route. It all needs to be calculated. This is our hiking guide for Arches and Canyonlands National Parks near Moab, Utah. It is a complete description of all the designated hiking trails in Arches Park, and Canyonlands Island in the Sky and Needles Districts. This is a full color guide with color topographical maps for every trail, elevation profiles; color coded trails; GPS points of interest and importance, and mileage between points. In addition, there are full page photos from each overlook with information about what you will see and facilities available. Appendices lists camping in the parks and surrounding areas.
