Product Details

Sun-kissed hills and waves of wildflowers. Turquoise-blue glacial lakes, burbling brooks, and thundering waterfalls. Expansive views from towering lookouts and mountain summits. Scampering whistling pigs, twittering songbirds, or a chance at seeing some larger fauna. You name what you want in a dream hike - and you'll likely find it in this entirely new edition of the legendary guidebook, 100 Classic Hikes: Washington

Although called "the Evergreen State," Washington offers a stunning variety of landscapes, ranging from the ocean beaches and rainforests of the Olympic Peninsula to the arid desert-like features of the southeastern corner, with plenty of mountains, alpine lakes, forests, meadows, and yes, evergreens filling the miles in-between.
