The authors walked nearly 1,300 miles in a year to provide detailed accounts of nearly every trail in the U.S. portion of the main Selkirk Range. This often overlooked range provides some of the best glacial geomorphology anywhere, and contains numerous high cirque lakes, glacial horns, U-shaped valleys and other glacial landforms. The lower elevations are covered with dense forest, often old growth cedar trees that are hundreds and in some cases over 1,000 years old. The book provides good photos of many of these wonders as well as details on how to access all the significant trailheads and interesting things found along the hiking path. This is an excellent book.
From the Book
The Selkirk Mountains stretch across a wide swath of the Inland Northwest. They host a stunning variety of landscapes, from lush temperate rain forests to dry ponderosa pine stands to the naked granite of the high peaks. The Selkirks extend far north into Canada, but Washington and Idaho hold one-third of the range plus an expansive, little-heralded trail system. This is the most comprehensive guide ever produced for the southern Selkirks, with descriptions for more than 170 trails plus charts, maps and photos to help hikers of all abilities easily find terrific trails – and make their own discoveries in the beautiful, wild Selkirks.
