Editorial Reviews

Review

A nearby wilderness is a little tamer ... the descriptions are ripe with the authority of having been there on foot. -- Spokesman-Review newspaper, July 13, 2003

One area of Montana remains a mystery for many backcountry aficionados - the Cabinets ... Nicholls has remedied that situation. -- Missoulian newspaper, July 10, 2003

The guide is very user-friendly, with detailed maps and directions ... It reads like good advice from a well-informed friend. -- Pacific Northwest Inlander newspaper, July 10, 2003 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

OK, I suppose it's a sad sign of my miserable life, but I have so little free time that I have to approach taking a hike like a consumer buying a new vacuum cleaner or going to the movies ... I want to find the best places to spend my precious bits of money and freedom. So that's how I look at trail guides (and I have a whole shelf of them). I want them to get me to the trailhead efficiently, give me a good idea of the trail condition and difficulty, and a good appraisal of what I may or may not expect on the hike (with a little left over to make some of my own discoveries). It's worth $15 for the advice, assuming it's GOOD advice.
So far I've hiked a pair of trails in this book and it was right on. First was Strong Creek outside of the town of Hope (which has really great views over Lake Pend Oreille). The trailhead was completely unmarked and I never would have found it without the description in the book. Beautiful, easy hike as promised in the book. The second was St. Paul Lake in the Cabinet Mountains Wilderness. Trailhead was easier to find and the descriptions of the trail were all good, including the hint to look for the huge western white pine just off the trail and for the bubbling spring a couple miles in. That's the kind of stuff I like. This is a hike to a beautiful pothole lake.
We even had fun coming back from that hike -- we stopped at a tavern on the highway outside of Noxon and one of the folks there saw me reading the book and went on a rant about the writer and how we could meet him if we hung around for a bit longer as he was coming in "pretty soon." We hung around for a while but had to take off. This guy is a regular rock star in that part of Montana.
The Cabinet Mountains have some real beautiful places, lightly used, and so far this book has not disappointed.

Having grown up in the area, this book took me home. The author gives great descriptions of the trails, what you might see on them and their locations. The sweat index is my favorite! The most inexperienced hiker could pick up this book and take off in the Cabinet mountains.

This book is a great guide to the CMW. However, I find the sweat indexes on most trails to be a little too high. Most of the trails in the Cabinets are classic trails much like most of the trails in NW MT. Overall though a very good guide book, one of the better ones I have found.
