From the Back Cover

Lace up your boots and sample the finest backpacking trails the Alpine Lakes Wilderness area has to offer. Breathtaking scenery and a variety of challenges and elevations await in this rugged, 393,000-acre region at the southern margin of the North Cascades. Select an easy, two-day scenic hike along a segment of the old Cascade Crest Trail to Dutch Miller Gap, or a quiet, three-day forest trek up French Creek, with a side trip to Klonaqua Lakes with views of subalpine meadows and forest below snowy granite peaks and ridges.
Inside you'll find: up-to-date trail information; accurate directions to popular as well as less-traveled trails; difficulty ratings for each hike; optional side trips; zero-impact hiking and camping tips.

Great Book. I bought this book, and took to it. The Alpine lakes are now one of my most favorite places to backpack. The information is General, but accurate, and enough to cover the area, then you should look into the smaller details on your own. But for getting a larger scope of the area, this book is perfect.
