A guide of questionable value
Trail info is detailed and informative but some of it appears to be dated or borrowed from other sources. For example the description of the Platte Ridge Trail is, at the very least, misleading. That trail has seen no use for some years and is impassable due to downed timber.
The rest of the book may be accurate, but I wonder if other trail descriptions may have been gathered from reading rather than hiking.
