My wife and I moved back to Alaska a couple of years ago and settled on the Kenai Peninsula. There is so much to do here, and so little time, that a good reference book like this one is indispensible. We have saved a lot of time researching these trails and correcting local maps by using this text. Really a very valuable tool for exploring the Peninsula. We use it a lot. Just finished a nice early winter hike to the Russian River Falls last weekend. Looked up a nice short easy hike and took off with the dogs.

Very helpful information for the casual and avid hiker.The introduction is packed with many helpful tips especially to those hiking in Alaska for the first time. The difficulty ratings of the hikes along with the elevation changes provide the information needed for a hiker to make the judgment on whether or not to take the hike . From past experience I know that elevation changes are especially important to those of us that are not well conditioned athletes.Making the maps larger and in color would be useful . Pictures from key locations also would add enjoyment to the book and encourage hikers.

Taz Tally's "50 Hikes in Alaska's Kenai Peninsula" is a first rate collection of day hikes, overnighters, and long traverses on the stunningly beautiful Kenai Peninsula in Southcentral Alaska.

Tally opens with a chart rating all the hikes, from easy to very difficult. A map follows, showing the location of the hikes with respect to the road network. Next is an introduction to the Kenai, some recommendations on gear, and some wise safety precautions.

The bulk of the book is a chapter by chapter description of each hike, with a fairly detailed narrative, a graphic showing the route, and a few black and white photos for perspective. The 2008 publication date means the information is fairly current. The book should allow a fit hiker a good selection from which to choose a summer's worth of fine walking.

Tally recommends the National Geographic series maps of the Kenai. The 1:105,000 scale may a challenge for hikers unfamiliar with Alaska. Todd Communications Road and Recreation Maps offer an alternative with more detail. Also, Tally notes that a weapon is no substitute for safe, sensible behavior; on the other hand, in known bear country, it is sensible to have a Plan B.

"50 Hikes in Alaska's Kenai Peninsula" is very highly recommended to walkers, hikers, and backpackers looking for good information on where to go and what to look for.
