  • A collection of 100 of the Yosemite area's best hikes

Yosemite National Park is a hiking destination know world round and this guidebook provides directions to the best trails Yosemite has to offer.

Virtually all the hikes in this book are readily accessible from major arterials, and there are explicit trailhead directions for each hike. The hikes in 100 Hikes in Yosemite National Park are divided into eight geographical regions. The regions approximate a counterclockwise loop, starting from the southeast and finishing in the southwest. Each hiking chapter is broken up in three basic parts: the information block, which helps you size up the hike by telling you how to get there and what to expect; the opening, which gives you a feel for what the hike is like; and the body, which describes the landmarks and trails, providing a blow-by-blow account of the actual hike, preceded by trailhead directions. You'll learn where the tough spots are on the trail, how much shade is available, and the locations of important Yosemite landmarks and special scenes you won't want to miss.

Roughly a third of the hikes in this book are located just outside the park boundaries, and about half of those lead into the Yosemite National Park. A handy trail index helps hikers choose from trails ranging in difficulty from "cakewalk to butt-kicker."

With extensive facts about plants, wildlife, and geological features as well as local history, each hike in this guidebook is loaded with outdoor entertainment and information.
