I live in Wyoming within 40 miles of the Cloud Peak Wilderness Area, and have been hiking in it off and on for the past 20 years. On the hikes I've taken since purchasing the book, I found Mr. Molvar's guide useful. The trail descriptions and ratings are accurate for the hikes I've compared to the text, and the author has a clear easy to read style.
I recommend this book. It will not take the place of a detailed map or tell all that one may discover on a particular hike, but it is a useful tool.

I lived in the Buffalo, WY area for ten years and bought this book to help plan a "homecoming" backpacking trip from afar. Erik Molvar's book covers all the classic trails in the Cloud Peak Wilderness area. In addition, the last half of the book covers hikes in the Big Horn Mountains outside the interior wilderness area. Apparently one reviewer who is not from the area missed this fact. This book is an excellent introduction to the Big Horn Mountains and will guide you through the marvelous scenery of one the the West's least visited but truly unique mountain ranges.

I bought this book because my wife and I were visiting The Cloud Peak Wilderness and wanted to do a couple of day hikes. I might visit later this year to do some backpacking as well. Based on reading this book before the trip and this weekend's day hiking I have been disappointed on a few points.

First, reading the book I quickly found it difficult to find the actual trail *to Cloud Peak*. Now I already understood that there was no official trail, but that there is absolutely an unofficial trail, from information friends had given me. This book spends almost no time talking about Cloud Peak, or Bomber Mountain (another peak that many people hike). I ended up figuring out based on one little "To Cloud Peak" reference on one of the maps, and from reading online, where I needed to go. This book should have at least included this as a hike, with some information about where the trail is and perhaps recommendations for which trail head to use or where to camp.

Second, the mileage on the day hike we did this weekend was *way* off. We clocked in at 11 miles, and the book says 8. IMO one of the more dangerous things a book like this can do is to underestimate a trail's length. I can forgive 10% error on trails. This was almost 30% off the total! Had I know it was 11 miles I think I would have had us at the trail head a couple of hours earlier (fortunately we were there at 8:30 AM).

Third, we passed well-marked trails that were not on the map in the book.

Fourth, the general detail in this book has been lacking compared to other, really good books I have. I should have been warned however. The Falcon Guide book for The Black Hills is quite bad, but had hoped for better from a different author.

While this book is great for those who live nearby, frequent the area, and can experience the myriad of hikes, rivers, lakes, and scenery in the Cloud Peak Wilderness on a regular basis, there is but one mention of Cloud Peak itself buried on a page not even related.

I was out there this summer (2013) and the majority of people I met in the wilderness were there for one goal: to ascend the 13,000+ft Cloud Peak. For that goal, this book will not help you at all. There is no information nor maps on any specific hikes or routes to the top of Cloud Peak.

Now that I've been up Cloud Peak and back, I can understand why it may not have been included in the book. Once you get in the area of the base of Cloud Peak, there really are no trails to speak of, but rather random scrambling and bouldering to the top for quite some distance. But the lack of distinct trails on the peak aside, in a book like this, wouldn't you at least cover the topic of getting to the base of Cloud Peak and ascending... and pointing out that from that point on there are no trails, just scrambling... maybe a little advice on the ascent? Like different considerations at different times of the year, timing your ascent to get off before inclement weather, essential preparation, things to do or avoid? Is there more than one side that one could ascend? I would have thought there would be at least a page dedicated to undertaking one of the most popular destinations in the Cloud Peak wilderness: Cloud Peak.

For ascending Cloud Peak, you will do better by going online and reading the experiences and advice of others who have gone before, taking a few notes, printing a couple maps, making sure you have a good trail/topo-map of the area, maybe an updated GPS with the topos if you can afford it.
