Product Details

Eastern Washington offers everything from sagebrush steppe and desert-like expanses to golden woodlands and lush forests. Its attractions range from the very large (the thunderous 186 feet of cascading water at Palouse Falls) to the rather small (the rare Okanogan fameflower). Hiking in eastern Washington, you'll share the wilderness with elusive lynx, impressive bighorn sheep, cougars, bears, wolves, mountain caribou, and yes, the occasional rattlesnake.

Close to the population centers of Spokane, the Tri-Cities, Walla Walla, Lewiston-Clarkston, Republic, and Colville, these hikes make ideal getaways for locals, as well as destinations worth the drive for those looking to escape western Washington's dreary rains. Day Hiking: Eastern Washington features:
  • 125 hikes, each rated for quality and difficulty
  • Detailed route descriptions and easy-to-follow driving directions
  • Helpful topographical trail maps
  • Quick reference icons for birdwatching, wildflowers, waterfalls, old-growth, fishing, historical interest, kid-friendly, or dog-friendly
  • At-a-glance hike overview chart
  • Hike extension suggestions for those who want a longer outing
  • Info on flora and fauna, natural and human history, and more
