The only reason that this guide doesn't get five stars is because the design is ugly and a bit clunky (look at that cover... the same design philosophy persists through the book).
I got other hiking books for the area, as well as using websites, but I found myself going back to this book again and again because it's so well-written and practical. I really wish I had discovered this book earlier, because quite honestly, I wasted years missing out on some fantastic, easy-to-do hikes out of simple ignorance. So, don't make the same mistake I did--get this book and get out there.
Since each hike listed includes an evaluation of difficulty--easy, moderate, strenuous--as well as distance, it's easy to find a hike that suits your level of skill and how long you want to hike. For example, when my parents came to visit, I was able to find a hike that wasn't going to be too long or difficult for them (Trillium Lake), and when my young nephew came to visit, I selected longer, moderate hikes (Ramona Falls and Silver Falls State Park). This particular edition, the 5th edition, has some useful features: in the first few pages of the book are summary charts showing each listed hike, distance, difficulty, and best time, as well as whether they are wheelchair-friendly, have good views, or are good for runners. In the back of the book are appendices listing additional resources.
This is a great book that I am confident you will love. It's a practical and well-balanced book, well-written and interesting, with a great selection of hikes. It's a must have book and one that is best purchased as a hard-copy rather than as a Kindle version.
