This well structured hiking book fills a gap in the suite of similar books that cover the Olympics and the Cascades in Western Washington. This volume does a good job identifying interesting hikes close to the metropolitan Puget Sound Basin--the title says it all. The book also adds features that many other hiking books lack, most notably good hike maps and hike profiles. You can do all the hikes in this book without supplemental maps.

Even if you already own a Seattle hiking guide, this book is worth purchasing. It includes many often-overlooked hikes and trail-runs that involve minimal driving time. Each hike has an informational box with pertinent facts e.g. distance, difficulty, terrain, so that browsing for what you want is remarkably easy. Unlike other local guidebooks, the maps include markers that correspond to salient features in the trail descriptions, making them infinitely more useful. The descriptions themselves are well written, precise, and include interesting historical facts. Plus, as the book is brand-new, the trail information is all up to date.

This book has a bunch of really good hikes right near Seattle and the Eastside which is what sets it apart from others I have seen (although it also has some farther out in the mountains). There are a lot of great options if you don't feel like driving too far. Really good if you have kids, or if you want some hard and some easy hikes. The book says it has 40 hikes available year-round, which is great in the winter months. Definitely recommended.

The other day I found myself in the passenger seat of my own car for an extended trip. Miles from nowhere with not much left to talk about and nothing but scratchy country music on the radio I noticed the guidebook I had received as a gift, stashed in the sidepocket and promptly forgotten. Raised on the Mountainers "100 Hikes" series, I knew guidebooks to be invaluable on the trail, but as reading material dryer than Central Oregon scree in mid-August.

As I thumbed the pages of "60 Hikes within 60 Miles: Seattle," I quickly moved from bored to engaged to engrossed. This book was good! In addition to finding dozens of previously overlooked trails within a short drive of my Seattle home, I learned many new and fascinating details about the places I've been hiking for years. The trail descriptions are accurate and appropriately detailed. The navigational instruction are clear and include useful visual landmarks in addition to the usual distance cues. What's best though, is that into the brief trail write-ups Weber and Stevens manage to weave bits of local history, trivia and entertaining lore that greatly enhance the hiking experience. I even found myself reading several sections aloud to my travelling companion. Finally, the authors also understand that sometimes the best hiking tip is not the trail itself, but the location of the local frosty mug or renowned double deluxe burger at trails end!

Whether you are new in town, just visiting, or a soggy Seattle native like myself, "60 Hikes" makes a great addition to your recreation library.

Got this book about an year ago and have since done almost half of the hikes described in this book. Can't say if these are the 60 best hikes (there are much more than 60 hikes in the covered area), but they've definitely all been great hikes so far.

The hikes can all be done as day trips from Seattle: The maximum driving distance from Seattle is 60 miles, except for the Mt Rainier hikes, which are more like 60 miles as the crow flies. Come to think of it, the driving time would be a more relevant criteria than the distance, but of course that wouldn't make for such a nice title.

The format of the book is quite practical. In particular, I appreciate the trailhead GPS coordinates, the easily accessible and detailed overview map, and the trail elevation profiles. There are more than a dozen criteria for choosing a hike, including trail length, crowdedness and various scenic features. Only, I wish this information was presented in a table rather than in list form, which makes choosing hikes based on multiple criteria a bit tedious.

I wasn't too enthusiastic about the schematic trail maps that lack topographic information. However all the trails I've seen so far were well marked, so this didn't turn out to be a big issue. On the other hand the book could use more pictures and perhaps less text: In this context, a picture (with a good caption) really can be worth a thousand (or at least a few hundred...) words.

Before you leave on any of the hikes, be sure to check with the WSDOT and the relevant park authorities that the roads to the trail (and the trail itself) are accessible. Look for recent trail reports on the WTA's site.

Easy to read and explore. I almost bought the "newer version which lists for $30++ but upon closer inspection realized that 2009 is the most recent version so don't be fooled by the copy that makes you think that is a newer edition. While many of us use our smart phones a lot, remember that on hikes the service can be spotty so we bought this to have maps and guidance in hand. I still recommend recent trip reports research online before you go, as conditions can change.
