I've made a couple of the hikes he writes up and with the help of his book I will be doing more.
* The lesser known Maze district is well covered. Island in the Sky and Needles are very well documented.
* His reviews of the trails are probably what 80% of us would agree on
* He covers unofficial side hikes to petroglyphs and old cowboy camps
* Thorough play-by-play coverage of every trail
* Plenty of historical and geology material
* No conflicts with what the NPS suggests: permits, environmental, safety, etc.
* GPS coordinates to key spots and camp spots - while very minor and not needed during the day, it would have been helpful when on our first day into the trail head we hiked the last half in the complete darkness. It's hard to see the cairns at night with a head lamp, and the the trail posts, while very visible in the day, look like stems from a small tree at night. (note: generally, there is no need for a GPS device in my opinion - the trails are well marked)
* While David talks about water spots, it would be nice to see them on the map. When you're 5 days out there, and water is uncertain, you end up packing most of it in. 10 liter bladders of water are heavy.
* Because of the terrain, there are some literal tight spots, don't bring in too much and make your pack to loaded, else you not be able to squeeze through certain places (like the crack between the rocks on your way between EC2 and SQ2). This is a general rule of thumb however for any trail any where. Pack light as you can, but it would have been nice to know about the very tight spots in advance.Read more ›
Only negative, the book is written for a clockwise circumnavigation of Island In The Sky and the trip we took (due to someone else's cancellation) was counter-clockwise. Required some thought and calculation to use the book in a reverse route.
Well worth reasonable cost.

I love it. I am ready to go there now. But since it is 1400 miles away I will have to plan it for the future. It is not a big book, which is good and bad. Read morePublished 16 months ago by Harlan
