The book is broken down first by general geographic area and then further into a description of each hike. Information provided includes distances, estimated travel time, elevation change and a difficulty rating. Descriptions include how to get to the appropriate trailhead and sketch maps for the actual route. The book has a good selection of photographs that provide a sense of scale for the terrain. An introductory chapter discusses the hazards of hiking in Alaska, including the weather and the wildlife.
This guidebook is highly recommended to the resident and to the visitor for an informed choice on where to hike in South Central Alaska.
Awesome guide book for hikes in South Central Alaska. I have been to the area five times over the last ten years and enjoy hiking and exploring new trails. I have two editions of this book. It has been a wonderful resource in selecting hikes that were appropriate for various traveling companions. Very detailed with all the necessary information to help you get the most out of your Alaskan outdoor adventures.
Once you are up here you will realize there is only so much you can adapt for an area 1/3rd the size of the continental US.
out of all the trips there are 20 I am considering doing in the near future.
Excellent book and updated on a regular basis.
Great insight as to what to bring on all trips.
