This photo- and information-packed inspirational bucket list encourages hikers and armchair travelers alike to fully explore our nation’s crown jewels.
America’s sixty-three national parks are made up of the greatest geographical, geological, and ecological wonders on the planet, and some of their treasures are only available to those willing to walk past the trailhead for just a mile or two.
Featuring spectacular photography and information, this book allows you to experience each park up close. Hikes range from half-mile nature walks on accessible boardwalks to strenuous full-day hikes to multiday backpacking trips. Each hike is chosen to showcase what is possible: long and short, hard and easy trails featuring mountains, canyons, waterfalls, wildlife meadows, forests, wildflowers, deserts, glaciers, volcanoes, beaches, and more.
The national parks have more trails than any one person can hike in a lifetime. Hiking America’s National Parks will inspire and inform hikers, walkers, and nature lovers to get out past that trailhead.
