Utah's Favorite Hiking Trails
Peaks, canyons, deserts, streams, etc.-- this book covers a little of everything in the great state of Utah, from very popular areas to little-known ones and from day hikes to extended wilderness trips.
There are in particular many trails for the Wasatch, the Uintas, and the national parks. Day also rates the hikes from 1 to 5 stars, 5 being the highest, to indicate his own enjoyment of the particular trail. 10 hikes that are his favorites-- Kings Peak, Naturalist Basin, Timpanogos, the Zion Narrows, Chesler Park, Devils Garden, East Rim of Zion, Kolob Arch, Upper Muley Twist Canyon, Calf Creek Falls, Coyote Gulch-- make a nice collection of all the best Utah has to offer.
As its name implies, this is a hiking guide, though there are quite a few hikes to mountaintops or to passes from which one can climb to them.
The book has excellent photographs, directions, distance and elevation information, and red tape information.
