"This handy book has descriptions, as well as details such as elevation gain, shade, water recommendations, and length, plus driving directions to each hike. Witt also categorizes them, such as best hikes for sweeping views, hikes with waterfalls, hikes by length, and my favorite section, best hikes for children." --UtahAdventurer.com, July 2012
About the Author
Following degrees from the University of California and Brigham Young University, he had an early career in human resources management; but Greg prefers high-adventure to the high-rise, so decades ago he traded his wingtips for hiking boots, and has never looked back.
Some weeks, Greg hikes more miles than he drives, which means he wears out his boots faster than he wears out his tires. He has crossed the Grand Canyon on foot many times, climbed Colorado's three highest peaks in three days, and in a recent summer in the Alps he hiked over 700 miles and gained nearly 100,000 vertical feet of elevation - the equivalent of climbing Everest 9 times.
Greg's other titles include Exploring Havasupai: A Guide to the Heart of the Grand Canyon and Ultimate Adventures: A Rough Guide to Adventure Travel. He is the US Editor of Off the Tourist Trail: 1000 Unexpected Travel Alternatives (DK Eyewitness Travel) and a contributing editor of Make the Most of Your Time on Earth, A Rough Guide to the World.

I plan to use it on my hikes after verifying some of the elevation gains and distances.
A few of the elevations and distance of a hike differ from the on line Utah trails descriptions.
So some one is wrong.. One hike says 3 miles RT the on line Utah trails says 5 miles RT.
Some say elevation gain of 600 on line says 1200... Same problem..
Key weakness are the maps. There is very little detail and no elevation lines. I learned very little about the kind of terrain I was headed into.
Overall very worth purchasing. Just don't get discouraged by the first hike being 16 mi r/t. They aren't all like that :)
