Many a tired hiker's fantasy involves a hot soak at the end of the trail. Evie Litton's book Hiking Hot Springs in the Pacific Northwest, formerly The Hiker's Guide to Hot Springs in the Pacific Northwest, is the answer to those dreams-a guide to hot springs and companion hikes in the rugged and majestic mountains of Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and British Columbia.
In her introduction the author states, "The mountains of the Pacific Northwest are a mecca, not only for super scenery and hiking but also, as it turns out, for first-class primitive hot springs. These gems aren't the commercial variety. They're located on prime public land within our national forests and parks."
This unique guide provides detailed descriptions to one hundred got springs and eighty-six additional hikes. It includes accurate, easy-to-read maps, eye-catching photos, and firsthand information gathered by the author who traveled every trail and ampled each hot spring.
There are hot springs and hikes to suit every taste, from easily accessible hot springs for those who enjoy company to remote pools several miles from cars and crowds. The hikes vary from short walks to multi-day backpacking trips.
Hiking Hot Springs in the Pacific Northwest is a must for hot springs fans looking for primitive yet pristine soaks off the beaten track and for hikers who want to add a new dimension to their backcountry trips.
