Format: Paperback
Whitney provides a great number of interesting hikes for your adventures, but don't take his word on everything. Be sure to take a topographic map and get advice from park rangers before heading out on day hikes or backpacking trips. I have used Whitney's books on numerous hikes and have found discrepancies on water availability and I disagree avidly on his opinion of "a great hike". He is accurate on difficulty ratings and distances, but check with the visitor's center to verify water sources and directions for the trail or route and MOST IMPORTANTLY, get recommendations from people who have recently hiked your choice of trails.

I agree with the other review to some extent- but it can't be blamed on the book. Water avaialability will greatly vary depending on season. And no matter how good your guide may be, you should always consult local rangers and have topo map for anything not 'trailed'. I also have Afoot and Afeild and HATE it. It wasn't descriptive enough and made things far more confusing than necessary. Hiking Southern Nevada and Las Vegas both have been valuable tools for planning trips and selecting hikes. Then we gather our 'background' info before heading out.

Format: Paperback
Although the book covers a number of truly excellent hikes in Southern Nevada, Branch Whitney's route descriptions are awful. They are terribly confusing, verbose, and in some cases incorrect. There are many other, much better hiking guides.

I don't consider Branch to be the authority of hiking in Nevada. Yes he hikes a lot and has documented these but the directions in this book are hard to follow and he could have made things much simpler.
